That was actually a really good race considering the well over priced GT500. If you were to put $13,000 in that camaro it would be a different story

Stock GT500 is $47K @ 540 hp @ 6000 rpm
Stock Camaro 2SS is $34k @ 426 @ 5900 rpm

13k difference for 114 HP.

Lets throw a 7k ProCharger supercharger into that SS, and rerun the race. The Cam will have ~ 580 HP, for less $$ than the GT, and will blow its socks off. Toss on a new exhaust system for another 4k, and you're still ~2K under the GT500 in cost, with almost 100 HP more than the GT500.

Its all about relativity. Yeah, the original match up with the Mustang GT wasn't really far engine wise, but cost wise, it was an equal match up. Even out the cost differences between a super charged/decked out SS and a GT500, and we'd be looking at another from the 'Stang peoples.

I was thinking the same thing !

Also I keep wondering where are these 34k camaro's at...because even people in the L99 issues threads are saying they paid over 40k for their car......

And lets not forget the NEW AND IMPROVE popcorn thread about the QC issues....Man talking about turning on your own....

Sorry guys I had to poke a little fun.

BTW, we keep beating this dead horse, and I keep seeing "Drop a S/C in a Camaro..." Well I have droped a S/C in my 25K GT and I will and have SPANK the hell out of a Camaro for less money than a new Camaro......

So..............

Stock GT500 is $47K @ 540 hp @ 6000 rpm with a Forged block, upgraded suspension, upgraded clutched, upgraded tranny.upgraded brakes

Stock Camaro 2SS is $34k @ 426 @ 5900 rpm WITHOUT forged block, it appears a wonky manual tranny, IRS, Brembo brakes(complete with weights ??) and some more QC issues its seems.

Fixed that for ya

Haha I am kidding...just poking and getting in meh cheap shots on you guys before the rabbid GM guys get in here....But the forge part is true.

Wow guess you never heard of tax, license and all the other fees. No camaro 2SS will be 34k exactly neither would a 47k GT500 be that exactly, you would be at 50k by the time its all done. duhhhhhhhhhhh

Mine stickered at $33,635. Whoever has the deepest pockets will go faster, but in the end my car looks better than any Mustang.

What in the world is a forged block? Is it a Phord thing

The problem with the GT500 is that it still looks like a Mustang! Other than that it is a very nice car.

Yep, the whole styling preference is purely subjective. Pretty much buy what you like and enjoy it. If I personally liked the Camaro more, I would have bought one, since I cut a personal check for my Shelby.

Imagine that. Considering the early Camaro's were built using the same long hood, short rear deck cues as the original Mustang. And the S197 derives its styling cues from the early Mustangs. And the Gen5 Camaro uses that same long hood, short rear deck styling, it really boggles me how anyone say that "looking like a Mustang" is a bad thing.

Here's a couple comparisons I found near me.
GT500 http://www.bohnzone.com/VehicleDetai...2-6931703.html

Camaro SS http://www.chevrolet.com/tools/vehiclelocator/trimResults.do?year=2010&gmModelId=150&searchType= 0&postalCode=70345&proximity=50&pvc=19984&exterior Color=GCN&interiorColor=AFM&optionList=GAN^AFM^2SS ^Q9K^LS3^MN6^GM3^AE4^UYE^W1H^B7X^VTD^19242930^9222 1879&pageFrom=byo

$8,000 difference, is that even enough to Supercharge and tune a Camaro? forget about suspension.

On another note I paid $29,000 for my 2006 GT off the showroom floor and now have a total of $40,000 invested in it. so for just $2000 more than a Camaro I have 125+ more RWHP.

A lot of the $$ goes to forging the Shelby motor, making it bulletproof up to 800+HP. A GT500 long-block will cost $16,000 just for the motor......... so you will not find a new GT500 going for $30k..
