I had a nitrous 3.8 spraying a 75 shot on a stock motor with stock exhaust and stock tune running a 13.8 down the 1/4 mile. Swapped rearends, put headers on and tuned it and then had a wreck before I could get my 12. Guarantee you won't find a bolt-on Honda, even with a power adder, that can run 12's and still be that streetable.

    Jap cars FTL. The new GTR is a POS that's too expensive.
    by the way, my 95 camaro has a 3800 series II, my 95 Buick i had before it has a 3800 series II. ill agree, identical motors, but tuned very differently.

    the block is only a minor factor, i mean think about it, the Lotus Elise got its motor out of a Camry, the Ariel Atoms came out of a Cavalier. I may be wrong on this one but i believe VW makes the motor for the Veyron.

    hahahahaha you just jumped off the cliff with the last sentence. the quad turbo w-12 is not just some production engine in a much much lighter car with a new tune. Not saying that someone at VW didn't specifically build one for that app. but it's a FAR cry from any of the other 2 you mentioned.

    Race the little fucker and get it over with. Really not to be an ass... but neither of you have fast cars. I look at it like 2 chihuahuas getting in a fight. definitely not a fight that will solve anything. Just a lot of yapping and a couple little squeeks and the fight is over.

    For what it's worth I doubt he's got a GXP. Is there a way you can forget something and have to run out to your car to get it so you can check out his ride? If he's N/A then you have a good shot against him but I'd take him from a low roll if possible, I think it would help you a little more since you are heavier and make a little more power.

    Another thing, if he's really that cocky he might go easy on you just to make it that much better and you could end up beating him. Anything can happen on the street. Either way it works out, you had better hammer down! Don't give him anything, take everything. -King Lionidas "300"

    yeah i wasnt real sure, i was also pretty drunk typing that one, i know the VW phaeton had the W-12, and i believe they own bugatti, but whatever, i got my point across

    Not hard to tell if it's the turbo version. On the back it will say GXP.

    agreed that looks sick. To the OP to see if its turbo simply look for the words GXP on the car and that means its got a hair dryer on it!

    Just slap a 50 shot of N2O on the 3.8 and then you'll likely be more pleased with the outcome.

    And you just proved his point.

    That POS "12 second" Honda is not even close to be as streetable as his 3800 series.

    that? that is singular, there are numerous there, so i would try they, at that i would guess that a good number of those are gonna be just fine on the street.... probably just as well mannered as the 3800..... that being said, i prefer the anything with the 3800 over a honda anyday, I drove a 3800S/C bonnevile all through hs, easy motor to work on and bout the only thing that will go wrong with them is an intake mantifold/gasket...

    Those Pontiac Solstice Turbo and Saturn Sky Turbo both net a around a 14.0 with a 100+mph trap speed in stock form. Even the automatics run that. If you have a 3.8L V6 in that Camaro you are done for.

    No doubt they are quick outta the hole and are mean, but they dont have that top end.

    My friend won one last year and we beat the piss outta it before he sold it.
