    '02 Camaro SS

    I have '02 SS, and it's stock, except for diablo tuneand I was doing 135 behind this Corvette in NC. It was a bittersweet experience. Sweet, because I've never done 135 in my SS before and bitter, because the only thing that slowed that Vette down was traffic up ahead. His brake lights went from cantelopes to golf balls real quick, and were on their way to aspirin until the traffic showed up. Then it got even worse because my check engine light came on. I thought I broke my car fuckin' with that Vette. Turned out, I sucked a leaf into the air box and I dont know how it did it but it was a whole leaf about 5in across blocking airflow. I cleared the code and went about my business. The next day I got popped in GA for doing 95 in a 70, good thing he caught me slowing down. LOL!!

    Right, welcome to conversion hell!

    Last time i pumped, 95 oktane was 'bout 1.20 Euro /liter: roughly 5.90 USD /gallon. Wanna live here???
    MPG at 100 mph: well, we measure liter per 100km and that would be 12 or so.
    'bout 20 MPG.
    Pleeze, next time you do the math, ok?!


    But I don't really check, too depressing. Friend of mine has a Daihatsu Cuore (fits in my trunk), 1 liter 3 cylinder engine. That's an economy car over here!

    Alright, that's a deal. I will do the math next. No, I don't want to live there. The country is not big enough. Daihatsu Cuore, eh? I should find a picture of that fine machine. 0-62 in 22 seconds?

    Feast your eyes!
    0-60 supposedly in 12.4 sec, but only about 40% of our gas consumtion...
    Did I mention it's tiny?

    Right, I'll suggest that to him, but I don't think he'll go for that. Although with a hoodscoop....
    Never mind, it might flip over at lauch!

    I hit 150mi last month! now with a new 402 stroker motor LS2 forged block,
    I can hit what a c6 can, 190-200mi, my speedo dial will be maxed out but still going to 190-200.

    The previous owner of my car is the one who swapped the stock rearend out of my auto Z for a hi-po posi unit, so I'm not what my rear gear ratio is. But when I hit 148, it felt like I had a lot more to go, at least 15 mph or so. My car has a hi-po chip, shift kit, the rearend, air filter upgrade and exhaust. I want another shot at 165-170, but I think I'll have to wait a couple more years. I've got a potential buyer coming to check the car out on Sunday.

    you sure dj? the c6's can do that becuase they are lighter and have less areo drag then the f-bods. i'd say 170-185ish maybe all depending on your set-up.

    yeah it should be close to 180, u right there's some loss because of 300lbs difference... also I checked the GTO LS2 on gtoforum.com they claim 170 pretty much top. and saw some stock c6 claim only 185-190... hmm perhaps the speedo show 200 but can't really go there very often.

    That is a under statement....

    I thought time was standing still at 147, I had way more to go.
    Yet I thought wow, I better slow it down before... time stops standing still.

    Traffic just appeared from some where?

    It's 98% aerodynamics vs. HP and gearing for top speed. Weight plays an extremely small role. Weight only slows you on your way to top speed, it doesn't knock the utimate speed down.
