    Problem is you're driving a 3.8 Camaro, so unless your car is a 5 speed, I don't really see you beating him at all. If you have a 5 speed it might be close, because you would both be putting down about the same HP at the wheels, but he's still got the gearing and weight advantage.

    You're a plethora of misinformation and half truths.

    No offense, but you're going to lose. You do not have the advantage.

    .... and we've all owned F-body's or we wouldn't be here, so don't try to capitalize on our current auto collections. For the record... 4tun8's EVO and my 240 (both of them) would rock many of the cars on this site.

    No offense but you're wrong. I also own a domestic, plus I also owned a V6 Camaro and I drag raced it numerous times and know what they run.

    Where am I getting my info?? I thought I made that clear.

    I have one friend with an '05 STI and another with an '07 WRX. I got my info first hand, can't be any more truthful or accurate than that.

    It's not a 9 seconds car yet, but thanks anyway. Drag radials don't hook well on this little car. The trap speed is there, but I still have some work to get it to hook all the power down. It's rather difficult on a manual transmission car with drag radials, and I haven't had the time to really practice at the track lately. My LS1 240SX is much easier to get the power down, since it has a much flatter and easier to use power band.

    the post was directed toward Cayenne97. Your cars are both awesome tho. I would drive either one of them.

    Hrmm, I have first hand experience as well. Since I had a friend that owned a 2002 WRX Wagon, and now owns an 2009 STI Wagon.

    His 2002 WRX ran in the 14s stock. With bolt ons and a bit more boost (Stage 1), it ran in the low 13s. So you're saying a second off your quarter mile time isn't an improvement and not noticeable? I sure as hell noticed the difference in that car.

    He is running low 13s stock in his 2009 STI.

    My apologies. I end up driving the LS1 car the most, even though its not as fast as my other car.... it's more fun to drive. Go figure. LS1 FTW???

    I enjoy being able to beat on it nonstop, but since the motor is pretty much stock, it takes the punishment and goes fast, since it's in a light chassis. One of the best things about this motor is the powerband. It has great powerband, pretty much all of the RPMs are useful, where as my turbo car I have to wait a bit for boost to kick in, then hold on or hold the car straight. The LS1 is easy mode, and because I don't have to try that hard to drive the car fast, I can do more thrashing with the car and it becomes more fun to drive. Even with a bolt ons LS1, it picks up and goes like the car weighs nothing. I've raced LS1 F-bodies with similar mods and power output as my LS1 240 and destroyed them. I didn't think weight alone would account for such a drastic difference, but apparently I can trap 118mph in the 1/4 as opposed to 110mph in an F-body with similar mods.
