The recertification process also found an extra five pound-feet of torque hidden inside the Camaro's 3.6-liter V-6, giving it a new total of 278 pound-feet. Mustang fans will of course point out that the Camaro still falls two pound-feet short of Ford's V-6. Because GM hasn't actually changed anything in the engine, just recertified it, the V-6 Camaro's performance numbers shouldn't change. That means a zero to 60 time of 5.7 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 14.4 seconds at 98.3 mph,[U]leaving it still just behind the Mustang, which hits 60 in 5.1 seconds and runs the quarter-mile in 13.7 seconds at 102 mph, owing to its lighter weight."
ODG, I can't believe you're worried about milliseconds. Just get whichever car works for you. I compared a 2000 Mustang vs. 2000 Camaro. I bought the Mustang. Same comparison in 2010, different outcome.
Current: 2008 Corvette C6 coupe
