Seriously? All I see is the OP's question being answered honestly by all, including V8 owners. What to do expect us to do, stroke your insecurities and tell you the LFX will take out a GT? If that’s what you want to hear, then ok.

Kind of grouping everyone together aren't you? You're mad because people said a V8 is faster than a V6? Sounds like a case of little engine syndrome to me.

If it is modded, well then who knows.

i run my ss on the 1/4 mile strip and stock my best pull was around 13.2ish and the 5.0 i ran against was also a 2010 (i think) he was around low 13 as well. I came back and ran the 12.2 and stopmed every 5.0 there but not stock. Headers, intake and a tune and they are nothing to worry about but stock for stock, id say it comes down to driving

tires also depending on which trim you have. Also LSD is only present on the manual v6s. not autos which sucks....one wheel burnouts fail...

to be honest its actually alot more than that. Its why when some v6 owners ask how much it would cost to switch out their engine for a v8 they get tons of replies saying that it isnt worth it b/c of everything you would have to change out to handle the power increase. I loved my v6 dont get me wrong but i love my v8 even more. And the v6 can be made to be an animal. Check out gretchen...but there is no denying that the v8 is a better base platform to mod off of if you want high numbers
