LS3 M6 Camaro vs E46 M3 HPF Stage 1

M3 dynoed 415whp on pump gas and 530whp on meth, think I can take him on pump?

He's got some richish friends so we have a nice private strip we get to use with his club.
I just have the vararam no tune intake and cut outs on stock exhaust.

So it weighs as much as your car then. And puts down to the wheels about youll be putting out at the crank.


Yep...it will be a tail light show.

He will win, no argument. He is making 75 or so more whp then you and weighs 1/4 ton less. It's like a full bolt on tuned 5.0 on a diet.

He will get you on the top end. He has the gearing to take advantage of the high rpm horsepower.

Nah stock the verts weigh 3780~ (IWASSURPRISEDTOO) and the weight of the turbo kit + he has a sound system, he should be right in that 4000-100 pound range for sure.

He definitely has more HP, no question.

There was a hard top option. It's not a retractable hardtop, it's a hard "shell" that can be put on the convertibles.
