2012 SS M6 vs. 2011 5.0 M6

DA was 3323

I drove both my car (SS) and the wife's car (5.0) tonight within 15 minutes of each other. Say what you want but with the same driver, powershifting both cars, same track, same 60'... the 5.0 was simply faster and would have run even better had it not spun through half of second gear and the first part of third gear.

SS - 13.3 @ 108 2.0 60'
- CAI
- Flowmaster Hush Power Mufflers
- VMAX Throttle Body
- Factory High Octane Tune (Fuse Pull)

5.0 - 13.1 @ 109 2.0 60'
- K&N drop in air filter
- Flowmaster American Thunder Mufflers

Corrected for altitude the times would have been:

SS - 12.7 @ 112
5.0 - 12.5 @ 113

Sorry, but I have to laugh at the "Factory High Octane Tune" like that's a mod.

Also, trap speed of 108 vs 109 shows the cars are very close in performance.

Trust me, going from the low octane map to the high octane one was better than all 3 other "mods".
