not trying to be a dick or any thing, but isn't it a bit weird that you can afford a 50k car and then a twin turbo kit, but not a 100 dollar camera??

I find it more odd that you would own a car like that, but wouldn't want a camera to take pictures of it...

Not necessarily true. Performance doesn't matter to everyone. Some people will buy the Camaro/Mustang based on looks alone. Not to mention the fact that you have the die hard Ford/GM guys/gals that won't purchase the enemy even if it's rated as having more power, etc. That would be unthinkable. Both cars have their pros/cons and there are many more factors in play than just performance.

I bought the Camaro primarily because of it's performance capabilities but the design was a very close second. I'm also one of those people who has always owned a GM vehicle. That's just my opinion and as we know, opinions vary.

Mustang is going to sell its cars no matter what Gm does !!!!!!!!

The love of Mustangs and a lot of americans is like a Cult.

Gm doesnt need to do anything right now with hp they need to keep going like they are and play it safe.

There is no way a Camaro will get a bump in hp because if it would it would pass up Corvette and that wont happen.



simple you want a mustang go buy you one they will be at every light

You want a smooth car , fast , killer styling ? Get a Camaro and hey throw on a exhaust , Cai and Tune and let the mustang boys come play

we still dont know is it a typical ford motor meaning how does it react to mods ?

yeah go ahead throw a Supercharger on that car your compression is so high now thats going to be fun lol Ford had to throw everything is coud to get the stang where it is. ( they did a good job also ) however there isnt much room to work with if you want to improve .


I love my Camaro and would still buy another over mustang anyday.

The car is a beauty, probably the only mustang I would ever own. Well I would still own a stock gt500, but not a regular gt. I might have more pictures of it somewhere, I have to ask someone first. LOL

A very real possibility.

Agreed. My parents have an old Miata that I used to drive. Manual seats, manual top, manual windows, manual everything. Sometimes that simplicity is part of the charm of having a sports car.

Whipple says they already have a new GT(5.0) supercharger kit that will make 600hp @ 7 PSI on the 5.0.

Compression isn't necessarily the enemy, remember the LS3 has very similar compression as the 5.0, it is detonation.

The GT500 is a beast and is a hell of a looking car. Much better than the base Mustangs.

Im kind of relieved that they didnt do much to the 2011 SS. Because I was half way tempted to wait for it, instead I went with my gut feeling and bought a 2010 SS.....wait I mean GT500. And had it twin turboed. Is that how you spell turboed? It looks weird.

Good thats even better NEWS

if you have a LS3 get you a Maggy and go let Andy at ADM fix you up lol

if you have a L99 get you a procharger and let him fix you up.



again Gm wasnt going to bump Camaro in its 2nd year in hp especially make it to where the camaro will have more Hp than Corvette.

Do you honestly see Gm sitting here and letting Mustang wear a crown real long like Mustang did with gm for years ?

HELL NO

As Scott settlmire told me a Few years ago " have FAITH " GM WONT BACK DOWN


Congrats Ford you did a good job


The Giant isnt sleeping he is watching lol

HUD's arent cheap..my guess is you'll see at minimum 500 added to the MSRP, if not closer to 1000.

Maf pics?

I bought it on sale at Wal Mart a while back, it's one of those no name cameras in fact there isn't even a name on it anywhere that I can see. LOL, I wanted something that I could just leave in the glovebox and take out when I see something interesting.. I haven't seen them there for a while, but they are always getting others in for around the same price. , I just checked their website and the cheapest they list is $39.95... but I know for a fact in the store you can find them cheaper...

I'm a little late here, but if HUD is standard on 2LT and 2SS is it optional on 1SS or 1LT? I guess I can wait until they start building the 2011 and build my own on Chevrolet.com

I'm glad GM went with the HUD for the 2011 model. I understand why there were no rear gear options, what with CAFE regs and gas guzzler taxes. As for a power passenger seat, I for one don't want the added weight. When I stripped the interior out of my ZO6 to do some wiring mods, I was amazed at how much heavier the driver's seat was compared to the passenger's. If anyone complains to me about no power passenger seat, I just tell them to get in the back seat (if they can).
The one thing I would like to have seen was memory feature (for the driver's seat). Even my 2006 Silverado truck has this.
