Beat a new 5.0 at the drag strip

I ran 13.29 in the 1/4 in 90° weather. Mustang ran a 13.67. Always love shutting them up. Now I have some goodies under the hood gonna race the new GT-500 and see how close we are. He has a different size pulley and exhaust. It should be close race. Can't wait till October.

Nice kill. I ran against a 2010ish 5.0 last week and wasn't so lucky. Pretty sure he was stock, he ran 13.07 against my 13.44
So what goodies are you packing now?

If it's a 2013 GT500 with a pulley you are going to need a LOT of mods to keep up.

Um...he's running a pulley and exhaust? What exhaust? and Prob has a tune for the pulley change. You do realize the 2013-2014 GT500 will be around 700 hp to the wheels with those mods right?

If he changed the pulley probably has a tune on the car as well



633 with just a tune. More boost and exhaust work will be even higher.

Tune, pulley and x pipe on a stock exhaust = 700whp

Yeah, as said above, you may want to rethink that GT500, unless they are like that GT driver and well, can't drive.......

This may be a Camaro forum, but we aren't stupid. The new GT500 is ridiculously good if you like drag racing (road courses are up for debate). I want one!

It not brand new. Either 2010-11 GT 500. He spins a lot from stop but from a roll hehas me. Yes those GT-500 ate fast I just wanna beat him. He told me he has the one with 540bhp from factory. He has a tune, performance mufflers from ford I believe. I got Lt, cai, tune and abt to cam it. I know I need a can to hang with him. I like goin n/a. So save money up for heads, vmax tb. If I don't beat him with that I will put turbos on the camaro.

That 5.0 I raced was stock like my SS at the time. We both were running street tires. Both m6 transmission. Yes it was driver error on both ends. My 60ft was 2.20 if I get it lower I should have run a 12.9 or 13.0 probably. Yes track conditions were terrible but its still a win. So I'm ready for a cam now. Shooting for low 12s.

Yes I know exactly what my competition runs stock I just find it funny that it was a bad driver. 5.0 are lighter and actually put down more power than the camaros. I just gotta cut sum weight on the SS and increase power to beat the GT-500. To bad the kid never got better than 13.5s. I gotta work on my 60ft time now.

I seriously doubt that... the GT500 carries almost 20mph MORE trap speed then a bolt-on SS does.

What that means is, even with a shitty launch, hes got more then enough top-end to run us down. I know from personal experience
