Or are you just a troll thread jacker? I think you need to get a handle on that brain mouth thing you got there. It would seem to me your time would be better spent helping people (such as myself) here on this site. So maybe they can know what you "know"! Where do you get your "facts"?
Have you built various engines and know from indepth experiance one engine is better than another?
Or are just pissed someone did'nt say something you liked about LS1s? You talk about my lack of knowledge and yet have no facts to contribute! Everything I've said here can be looked up, I listed three places. I mean do you even know how to read? Am I missing where you directed your answers to the OP? The fact is I usually enjoy this site but it seems more and more often there are people (such as yourself) who would rather argue. Tell others (in so many words) they are stupid when they get called out on where they get "their" facts. Rather than shooting the breeze about their cars or other cars. If I'm wrong then I'm wrong! Shit happens! But dont sit there spouting your oppinion is right, and give nothing for someone to check out so that they may learn something too!
Dont waste my fucking time!
Thank You and Good Night..

Your last post just makes you sound even more retarded than you already are. I really hate to turn this thread into a pissing match but its entertaining to me. I love how people (like you) get so worked up on the internet. And calling me a troll is just lame. If anyone is the troll...it would be you. I hope you don't leave the site though...I enjoy reading some of the stupid shit you say. Ive read other stupid shit that you have posted, but I have never said anything to avoid a thread like this. Anyway, I'm not arging the fact that the 90's ZR1 is isn't a fast and cool car. I'm just saying that "Motor Trend" is not gospel and information written in their magazine isn't always that accurate. Many "magazines" have recorded lower ET's in F-Bodies than what Motor trend has published. I'm not going to list all the "sources" to prove a point. It's common knowledge in the LSX community.
The rock is waiting...

Ok guys since I started this crap I'll try and finish it.
It's common knowledge that the LS1 F-bodies were underated and infact have the same output as the Corvettes of the same year.
Case in point read this.
In fact this also brings to our attention that the LS1 Corvettes are basically right on the money for their ratings of 345-350 HP.
1990 ZR1's were rated at 375 HP and only 25 HP more then an LS1 equipped car.
This puts it well in the range of driver error for an F-body beating one in the 1/4 mile. Because in a drag race the more powerful car is not always the winner.
Also the comments about Motor Trend or similar Mags not being a good indication of possible performance is correct. In 1999 GM High Tech Performance Magazine did a test of a `99 Z28. Even Smith a well known guy in the Mustang community at the time drag tested the car and ran a 12.89 @ 109mph in almost perfect weather conditions at Atco Raceway in NJ. Same car was driven by Car and Driver Magazine earlier in the year and they only managed a 13.8Craig

Maybe you should have this site named after your tag. Since your such a wealth of LS1 knowledge, I guess we are all lucky you're here.
On a side note I've also read some of your posts.I see that you have a habbit of going from place to place insulting and pissing people off. Not much facts about cars. You are a TROLL!

You are such a dumbass. Everytime you post something else it just reinforces the fact. I love the use of the ban smiley and how you keep calling me a troll.
I have LSX powered car to justify my existence here, do you? Or...is the closest you have is Motor Trend. Although... that is a sweet Chevy Lumina you have in your avatar there. And one more thing, I never claimed to be the "wealth of LS1 knowledge". Everything that I have posted...again...is common knowledge in the LS1 community. You were the one who became upset. I just pointed out the fact that you are annoying and that Motor Trend and other high profile mags are not the end all, be all source of information.
