It would be real close. What other mods do you have? Is the SS is modded, then no.

If it's a V8 GT40 MKIV, no

If it's a V8 Bonneville, yes

Ask vader2011v6. He's running low 13's with that kit and says when it's finished being tuned he should be running 12.8's which is the same as the magazines claim a stock SS will run. It'll be a drivers race with the IPF kit it seems.

My IPF'd LFX was pulling on my friend's SS, both M6 cars, on a freeway entrance ramp.

Good enough for me.

It would be a good race. I've raced a few ss. It should be a drivers race. Depends are you going for quarter mile time or off a roll? Off a roll shouldn't be a problem. I actually pulled away hard from a bolt on ss camaro off. 1st gear roll.ipf kit is solid definitely reliable.is your car auto or stick?Launching is a little tricky with the manual.

Isn't the real question can it beat a supercharged SS? Comparison should be stock to stock or mod to mod when discussing which car is actually better.

On a side note, years ago a guy wouldn't run me in my old Camaro because it wasn't stock. I said I would go and get my stock little two seater which is only a 4 cylinder if he wanted to. I came back with my 4 cylinder 11 second Kawasaki "two seater" motorcycle and he still wouldn't run me.

Who said anything about one being better? All OP asked was if it could beat an SS.

IMO it would be close, but if the SS has any mod I'd say no.

The fastest IPF car so far is 12.8s in 1/4th. If you look at the link below you can see how that would stack up against various V8s on this site. How you actually do can't be answered until you install it and run it.

12.8xx on a Stock SS with LS3 would get you around the top 7-12 on this site.
12.8xx on a Stock SS with L99 would get you in the top 2-3 on this site.

Of course, if you were slower, then you would drop further compared to those lists.

Wouldn't it be easier and cheaper to trade for an SS? And what's the point of having a sleeper unless you're planning on street racing for cash?
