How can I beat my friends v6 with my ss?

Ok so my friend has a 2010 v6 camaro. It has a tune, ported and polished heads, cai intake, no cats with straight pipes but stock headers and it's turbo charged. It puts down 412 wrhp. I have a 2012 ss and it only has high flow cats and borla atak exhaust. What else can I add without destroying my warranty? If it wasn't because of the warranty I wouldve smoked his ass along time ago but I want to keep it for now. He has already beat me twice at the straight line by a car length or two. By the way there both automatic.

Get a killer paint job and a nice hot model in the passenger seat for the win.

If he's turbo'd there isn't much you can do. bolt on's aren't going to cut it.

You could try weight savings and drag radials. Also you could do some suspension mods to help with your 60' time.

Or you could do that magical fuse pull.

hmmm some are better tires bigs & littles / air intake / shorties / weight saving
...
not much though but cuz he has a turbo most likely he will alway end up passing you or turning the boost up -
maybe you can turn your heat on full blast too

He's torbo'd... you're basically stock? Suck it up - you can't beat him. Get a ZL1.

You're going to need headers, intake and a tune.

For a warranty warrior, get a Cold Air Inductions CAI, QTP electric cutouts, and talk to your dealer about headers and a gear swap (usually they will keep it under warranty if you let them install and buy from them).

If you want to keep your warranty. Headers and intake are best bang for your buck.

If you want to get an L99(auto) to 412 rwhp, you will need a cam.

But if you want to get close to his power, get LT headers, Intake, and some good tires.

A tune will help you immensely and help bridge any power gap that may be there after that.

If hes only got you by a car length, headers, cai, drag radials, and practice can get you there.
