I think you'd have to go back at least a decade before you can find a pony car that a modern V6 Camaro would have no problems beating. '98-'02 LS1s were low 13 second cars, so not those. '99 on up Mustang GTs were all faster. Maybe a '96-'98 era Mustang GT? They were mid to high 14 second cars so those would probably be a driver's race. LT1s were all faster so that would take you back to at least '93 with the f-bodies.

An 04 GT and down would likely be a bit quicker off the line than today's V6 Camaro due to weight and gearing, but from a roll, its fairly even and I'd even say the V6 would probably take it. For sure the V6 if it is auto versus auto.

260 horse 4.6 2V GT's (99-04) with a stick were low 14 high 13 sec cars right at 100mph. A stock Camaro V6 would have to be a real freak to keep up with that.

2010 Camaro V6 manual was tested at 14.1 by MotorTrend (MT also tested the 99 Mustang GT at 14 flat just so we all know) and we have some V6s here bone stock in the 14.2 - 14.3 range. Guess our cars must be "real freaks" lol. (just teasing)

Again, the 99 - 04 GT is quicker off the line which enables it to be capable of seeing the very high 13s when all things are perfect, but past that it evens out. For every 99 - 04 GT that runs a stock 14 flat or less, there are many more running mid 14s, just like the V6.

But legal racing at a dragstrip, the GT has the advantage, like anything though this is dependant on the driver.

Ehh, a well driven 2V GT is a low, low, low 14 second car. I'd still give it to a '99-'04 GT.

I give the edge to the manual GT as well at the 1/4 mile track. All I'm saying is that it is a pretty competitive match.

Agree... although when I was at a 1/8 mile track last week and ran against stock one, his best was a 9.30 and mine was a 8.62... His 9.3 converts to approximately 14.5 secs in the 1/4. The track's conditions are poor. Hard to consistently launch well w/o spinning too much on stock tires.

I also ran against an '09 GT before... his best was a 9.0 which is pretty much 14 flat in the 1/4 when converted. So far my best was in the 8.6x range, my biggest issue is launching well thus poor 60' times with a 2.0x being the best so far on a not-so-stellar track.

BTW, my L99 is all stock except a C.A.I... it's fun, win or lose. I also lost to a modded STi before... his best was 8.60 flat.

Hey bro i just recently raced with 2013 mustang GT 420 where my car was 1LT 330hp. and guess what happened. It was a tie the GT couldn't even get away from me. that happened because i used manual shifting it would be impossible without it. :

You've got nothing to lose and everything for gain. If you win don't race again because it won't be pretty a second time for you. Now grab a 2010 SS it would be different....

It's even better when he says he used "manual shifting" which means it's an auto, the slowest of the slow in stock form.

I agree with everybody else my 06 GT ran 13.7-13.9 stock and with a tune cai went 13.22.. I know the 3v gets No love but they can be made to run decent.. It is a smaller platform than my camaro , even though now it only lays down 479/453 on a Dynopac it runs low 11's due to the lighter weight and I do belive the straight axle helps out too

EDITED

Stock 2009ish GT vs stock 2015 2LT from a 40mph roll, the GT began to fall behind in my experience.

Original said 2011, I did not think about it, but I could have sworn that is what the owner said, but it IS before the facelift/remodel that happened around 2010.

This is NOT a 5.0 coyote. Obviously there is no way can a stock v6 Camaro keep up with a 400+hp mustang in a straight line.

Sorry for confusion.
