sad day-- my beloved G8GT with a 6.0 361 HP 383 ft/lbs of torque is being compared to the base line V6 Camaro.

:(

Fastest recorded time I have found for the G8 GT is 13.37 (or maybe it was 13.34)

with catback, intake, and handheld tuner -tune- 12.9 (verified w/ slip and witnesses)

Not trying to stir up things, but V6 Camaro not close to a G8 GT.

For crying out loud is had a LS2 (with AFM). technically not an LS2- but very similiar.

It put more HP to the ground than the Camaro v6 makes at the flywheel?

But I would love to have the NEW Camaro 2SS/RS package.


disclaimer- with a high DA and crappy driving, I have seen people run 14s. But these are solid 13.6 cars or better in stock form (with average track conditions)
13.3-13.5 with ideal track conditions.

Please be gentle with me,,, don't shoot the messenger.

What handheld tuner? Did you dyno the car with those 3 mods?

I believe it was superchips/ Cortex---

I am not the person-- I've never ran mine (just got it in May) too hot in TX to go run :(

the tuner- eliminates or reduces torque managment, in 25% increments, allows you to change shift points, remaps things based off of actual Air/Fuel ratio. blah blah blah....

I don't pretend to know much about these tuners. I for one have never tuned a car.

I am a frequent member @ G8board.com and (http://forum.grrrr8.net/).

that is where I am learning the numbers and info about my own car.

I don't think the mods over here care about Grrrr8.net links being posted, unlike the Nazi's over at G8board.com. Dede is just a whiney bitch.

I beg to differ...

We notice G8's because we know what's going on in the performance world. But whenever I with people from work, or just driving around with family, no one even notices them. I'm constantly pointing them out to people. "That's a G8 GT." "They're pretty fast."

They're great cars, but there's definately no "wow" factor from the general public associated with the car.

The other day I was in an SUV full of people when an IOM 2SS/RS with cyber gray stripes came rolling down the street (WOW!) Talk about everyone turning their head to get a long second look.
