.....and to the "should have gotten a V8" guy (always has to be at least one who feels compelled to jump in) - you should see how many of your SS brethren are running the SAME TIMES with their SS's......due to bad launches, and not having a clue how to handle the power!! ...lol

You don't see us getting on your posts with: Wanna go fast, should have gotten a Mustang"....do ya?

Jeeez. Enjoy your LS man, it's a great car, with a great motor. I love my 13 RS M6, and have owned too many Mustangs to count, including a 2011 5.0.

if his primary concern is speed, then yes, that would be the easiest route. . that's why they make a SS. for people who want to run below 14

and no, I do not own a SS, just the V6

We had a member with a 2010 LT auto that ran low 12s on 125 shot. Had to sell it due to economic/family reasons though. Might find some posts in the Motorsports section about him. He was Rod1 on here.

If you beat a 5.0.. well then he wasn't trying or had absolutely no idea how to drive even starting off like a wimp he should have been able to fly right past you. There is a big difference between a stock mid/high 14's car and a stock high 12's car...

Also if money is not an issue, go boost or swap in an V8 Crate motor.

Why do you have to come on a post obviously created for V6 camaros and flame people. I'm sure there are plenty of V8 posts that would better suit your needs. We are all here to help each other not demean or put down. Just relax, and take a deep breath.

3.55 gears in the auto aren't worth it in my opinion. The money you're going to spend for the gains aren't worth it. It'd be better to pony up for the v8 rear end and have the choice for a lot more gears and get an LSD while you're at it.

Intake, tune, And if you are making enough power to where traction is an issue, then get tires.

Lose some weight, lighter wheels. A scoop for the cai?

Some supporting suspension mods. If you are going to put a ton of money in, you really should just get a V8, unless having a really quick V6 is one of your goals.

In that case, you can look into turbo/supercharger applications and engine work. But it didnt sound like you wanted to get into all that.

IMO, and this is what i might do...do the bolts ons, and maybe some new rims/tires, tune, then you should be in high 13s with good DA and if you know how to race haha

then wait for the 6th gen SS, barring that it isnt ugly, then get a 1ss and permagrin. Thats what I will do. Im waiting for the 2nd year of the 6th gen cause the 1st year is always something wrong, but thats with everything

Exactly. Some of the guys saying "get a v8" arent bashing v6's, because in the end it really is the most economical way (imo) to get more power, and there are so many more parts and shops available for getting power out of the v8s.

And if 13's are the OP's goal, then you just need a 1SS and you're done lol. I had a v6 4th gen, and just did bolt ons to enjoy it more, and waited till I could afford the V8 to get some real performance.

correct but still to many people have to need to show that they are better than the v6 owners. most v6 owners will get a v8 but like me, it wasnt economically safe for me to get one. That and i was 17 when i got this car so i felt i shouldnt get a v8 as my first car, i need to earn it.. which i will

Very good post. In today's economy. Where we are just beginning to recover from a recession, not many people have SS money laying around. I did, but for me it was my credit that held me back. I didn't want a $500 monthly payment. So I figured I would rebuild my credit. Save money on a 6cylinder and when my credit is fixed get the SS. But in the meantime mod the car out. The site has Ben unbelievably helpful but some of the SS guys have a superiority complex. Just my 2 cents.

I love my v6. fuel wise it was a better idea to get. just the engine is the big difference. next summer my twin turbo set will be put in and I will put out 469 to the wheels so should beat any stock v8. makes me happy. especially some v8 stang that wants to show off what they got. but either then that my v6 is just as good or will be as a v8 one day

You better think twice about doing a twin turbo set up on a daily driver.If you cant afford a new engine then you have no business modding any car.

SO since you plan on financing turbo kit pluss install, make sure you have enough credit for a new engine as well!

Also a twin turbo install could have many problems, its not just a easy bolt on!
