That makes for a nice sleeper. How about reliability? No worse than a supercharged V8?

Very good run...but not your best! Hope to see you eek into the 12s eventually!

Yes if the SS was an L99 I'd consider a 13.2 pretty decent considering most of the top 10 times for the stock L99 on this site is a 13 flat or higher.

5 - 6 grand for the base SC kit....then on top of that tire and chassis mods are a must so do another 1 or 2 grand there.

Down here you dont see too many low 13 second L99 stockers unless the weather is great and that only happens here maybe 2 weekends out of the year. But mid 13's is about normal for stock L99 and low 13's for stock SS.

Buying a LS3 SS would have been a cheaper way to be as fast as an SS......LOL........The same $8000 would get the SS into the 10's........go ahead pound your chest.....you beat a stock SS with your V6......LMAO..........

You're cool bro...... Not

I don't recall spending $8,000 either...

Lets do some math.

Stock SS $32,000 + $8,000 = $40,000
- not taking into account the gas the insurance and higher monthly payment I would pay

Stock LT $24,000 + $5,900 = $29,900.
- not taking into account same as above


Soooo I think a V6 is cheaper and more unique then a modded common SS that's already fast

Some people said the ss was slow..................but for the conditions out there that day it wasnt much slower than most of the ones out there. Point is both cars can be faster whenever we have better weather but obviously that flew right over your head...............................


These v6's down here run 15 seconds when they're stock so we've dropped almost 2 seconds off the e.t. so a damn good improvement.

You should be laughing at yourself! Go get a cam done on your L99 and by the time you spend 8k youll have a cam, heads, and torque convertor and bolt-ons and run mid 12's if you can drive! You got another 15k before you run 10's and again only if you know how to drive

Well said. I don't think many people realize how much it takes make most cars run 2 sec faster in the quater mile. The ones that do know are not he armchair drivers.

This thread was brought on by a different thread where a member asked if any of these V6s were beating V8s. It was an honest question...not a chest thumping thread, and neither is this one even if the title is a bit missleading.

You will never get it, but its a V6 thing. We are not out with the sole purpose of beating up on big brother with our modded V6. Rather...just to make it the best it can be. In many ways we are still in an experimental stage while the SS owners have proven mods that have been around several years. So during our modding, if we happen to take down an SS, a GT, an SRT...a whatever....sorry but that is the victim. Do you know we had a V6 in the 11's with not much for mods...just some good ole nitrous. Its no different than some of these bad-ass turbo'd 4 bangers out there that'd woop your butt as well for well under the price of an SS.

He has a nice performing, unique car that is interesting for less than the cost of a new 1SS.

I personally say you did a good job, rock on! I say it's the same level of respect if we mod our SS to be faster than the ZL1.

Good job, nothing like beating a V8, specially when they are the one's always talking down V6's. It's the same where ever you go. If no one ever tried new things we'd all have V8's and it would be boring. At the end of the day we all enjoy the same thing, modding cars. I don't see why anyone needs to crack the shits.

Tracy and the guys down here at RXP have already opened my eyes to the V6 world. I knew that you guys could make great power, but I was never involved in the V6 world as we were more focused on other builds and V8's frankly. Now that I see what missionboi, Baylor, Gretch, U Dont C, v6owner, and the rest of you can do with these V6's. It's amazing.

Yes I am a V8 owner, don't shoot me. And yes to go 10's in a SS with forced induction, chassis work, etc. you'll be $10-15k pretty easily depending on if you do your own work or not. I went 9's last year with "minimal work" on a stock motor, and it would have cost me at least 25k on the retail level. Now this year we'll be in the low 9's/high 8's we hope and it's definitely 45k+ in mods at retail level. This sport gets MORE expensive, the FASTER you go.

$24k on a base car + $6k to be supercharged or $7k for twin turbo leaves you at 30-31k for a great reliable DD with some uniqueness as other members have exclaimed.

To the V6 world !

OP great run a win is a win no excuses. Some in the V8 crowd will never give us respect no matter how fast we can run they still believe the Camaro should only come with a V8 they feel superior because their car says SS.

Something tells me my Camaro will be taking a trip to the West Coast of Florida next year for so go fast goodies
