ran into a 5.0 today. fml

got whipped. the guy was cool he was stock and both were a6. i have a 2014 l99 btw. i actually couldnt believe how fast those coyotes are! but I'm not one of the fanboys who cant seem to accept a 5.0 is considerably faster stock than a l99. overall beautiful car and it was fun! just out of curiosity what mods will put me neck to neck with a stock 5.0?

Headers, cats, intake and tune should do it.

or a challenger 392 srt8 which would completely blow the doors off a 5.0 and all of the 5.0 owners know it.

An SRT8 Challenger similarly equipped as my SS would cost between $45-50! The Challenger is the most expensive of the pony cars (not counting the GT500 or ZL1). It also weighs as much as a box truck.

how did we go from stock vs stock to Boxtruck vs ZL1's? These threads on challenges go to hell real quick.

Definitely headers and a tune will wake up the SS a lot.

When misinformation presents itself, facts need to be administered. Personally, I think an LS3 vs. a 5.0 is a driver's race. I think the OP's L99 is what did him in. An exhaust, intake and tune would help him out. Good luck!

I have owned both and will kindly disagree. Take the drag start out of the equation and the 5.0 will pull away every time. If you want to add the drag start well then its on the driver. I can take out a z06 with an idiot behind the wheel. Put competent drivers in both and the 5.0 will pull again.

An exhaust will make no difference on the SS.

Reread my comment: An exhaust, intake and tune (a combination of all three).

My point is the result will pretty much be the same regardless of the exhaust. And most would say a tune is pointless (to lose your warranty) for just a CAI (exhaust).

Eh, it's a subjective argument. I know a catback won't gain much, but the weight alone will surely help. Hell, when I dropped my "suitcase mufflers", those things weighed a ton.

Longtubes, intake, tune should do it. Add a trans converter and should very doable.

Then again, from my understanding, a tune on an A6 5.0 makes a huge difference. So if the 5.0 did a couple minor mods you would probably be out of it again.

Remember.....there is always someone faster no matter what you do.

A good friend of mine has a '13 5.0 and we've run a good handful of times at the track. For the most part it was a drivers race. Now mind you my car is basic bolt-on and his is stock. Stock for stock I think he would've taken me every time. The 5.0 is no joke. It will run. I'm not a mustang hater but I definitely prefer the Camaro even if the whooped me every time.

I have 2 of my good friends one with a '11 5.0 and the other has a '12 392, the challenger has never beat me or the 5.0, and between ls3 and 5.0 its more of drivers race but i can beat 5.0's all the time if we race 40-50 mph roll btw all cars stick.

Not all cars are created equal out of the factory either. For every factory freak there is a turd that comes off the line too. Just make sure you have a ton of power up your sleeve and it doesn't matter who pulls next to you.
OP. A set of long tubes and a tune always does the trick and makes solid gains on LS powered cars.

I think nowadays most people say "exhaust" but really mean exhaust work. When people ask what's done to my car, I usually respond with "a cam and some exhaust work". I assume the rest is a given. Gm has been putting free flowing cat backs on cars for a while. It's more of an efficiency thing.

A tune on even a stock L99 is good for considerable power under the curve and the reduction in torque mgmt is worth the price of a tune.
