    yes the motor puts out more power,but the weight to power ration favors the 4th gen. on a heads up race with equal drivers the 4th gen will win.

    Negative. The exact same driver driving both those cars completely stock, the 5th gen will be almost a half second faster in the 1/4. The M6 2010 has hit as low as 12.9 completely stock, but most peg it at a solid consistent 13.0. I haven't heard of a 4th gen hitting those numbers bone stock... ever.

    I'd take a modded LS1 over the 5th gen too.

    Put some solid motor mounts in the 5th gen, full exhaust with a cutout, and i bet you'll feel the power then....

    throw your 4th gen into a corner about 35-40, slide it around and punch the throttle,
    5th gen at 30-35 will push/slide right though corner,way too heavy in frt.
    5th gen geared too tall in rear for economy.

    With the right tune and a couple extra mods u could reach 11s for around $1500 that includes a $600 NOS kit

    I think if you strip the weight outta the car you could easily get a stock low 12s
