    i think without the tune and the heads its really holding back your combo. I'd think 400-430

    I dont think they underrated them because the v6's got 300, and i think they made a ls2 and i think they put that at 400 and the ls3 at 425. i may be wrong though.

    LS3 in the Vette is rated at 430HP in the Camaro SS 422HP (manual only)
    The Auto equipped Camaro SS's get the L99 (with DOD and VVT) rated at 400 HP
    My guess is that their pretty close to this, but considering the weight and IRS I would say a bolt on LS1 should easily take one.

    i know they underrated the ls1..and i believe they underrated the ls7 if i am not mistaken..but i think those are the only two they really did that for..so i wouldnt think they would with the maro

    You should win. It will be close if he can drive well and is an M6. They are slightly underrated. I have seen most go 13.3-13.5 at the track.

    98 T/A w/a little mods...

    I wonder if this is fate steping in.....today I went to check out a T/A and it didn't pan out. As I keep looking at it (the new camaro) I remember I have an invite from the local dealer to check it out. I just don't want to have a big ass car payment for next 5 yrs....
