Dollar for dollar I say the V6 Camaro and the Mustang or the best bang for the buck anywhere. The Mustang is noticably faster running high 13s. Can't beat that deal for the price. But the Camaro is a little slower but looks a lot better and has a better Highway ride in my opinion.

Does the V6 have enough power????

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=147001

A few mods and under 12 seconds, NOT BAD!!!!! And you still use regular gas for daily driving, insurance cost is lower, so even with the mods it is still thousands lower than a
V8.

Well, for me I love my V6. I love that at any moment I can blow by any car on the road. What you get is ultimately your choice. I asked the dealer what a new stock LS3 and Tremec TR6060 would be. He said the engine was "$5489.91 + tax, the Trans would run $3316.69". So for over $8806.60 you can get an SS, assuming you upgrade your 1LT. If you want to be a mechanic and do it yourself, then you can go the mod road. I'll tell you this like I tell everyone, the Chevy standard engine for most passenger cars during the '70's and '80's was the 305 V8. You could order a V8 that cranked out 350hp for more money and go higher for LOTS more money. The Camaro now comes with a V6 that turns out 312hp!!! To answer your question, yes the V6 has more than enough power. If you plan to race, you can get the V8. You will rarely need to get to 116mph in the 1LT with the V6. I believe the limiter/governor is set that high, for which you must have the right set of tires(ones rated at that speed). Well enjoy! Good Luck!

There are cars that are faster. No one said anything about being stock...

I've had my 2lt rs up to 149 mph... When it was still bone stock. Second day off the lot. Is that fast enough?... Now I just get to that speed a lot quicker.

I think we may disagree.....just watch gretchens latest transformation. We will be in the 10 sec 1/4 mile territory before long.

There are several V6s on here that are putting out the same or more power than a stock SS. Of course, we don't have a powertrain warranty any more, but that's the modder's life...

If I were into racing at the track, then sure, I would probably choose the V8. I just don't need that much power for everyday (legal) driving though. Would it be fun? Yes! Practical? Nope. All it boils down to is bragging rights. Is it worth an extra 8K to impress some people on an internet forum?

Unfortunately, we can't get the V8 rumble with our sixes, but that doesn't mean an upgraded exhaust and intake won't leave it sounding pretty darn good.

My M6 is plenty quick . It's just as quick as my 2000 Z28 was.Gets great mileage,cheaper to maintain and no 'performance car surcharge' from the insurance man.To each his own,but I like my car just the way it is.
