    Again with the "2006 F-Body" attack (after already acknowledging that you re-inspected my post). Must I point out that I was being theoretical with that comment? The Camaro has only gotten faster since the advent of fuel injection, and GM halted it's production in 2002 because of it's baby, the Corvette. Had the Camaro been built in 2006, it would have had to of been a twelve second car from the factory (being the 02' was practically 13 seconds flat)....

    Is that so hard to digest?

    Man I wasnt aiming that as a cheapshot at you at all, I was merely rationalizing to that guy that the thread as a whole had taken a completely different direction in reference to the original post (guy asking to race an LS1)Relax, I dont take cheapshots, I say things up front

    Okay, since we're talking 4G63, kindly tell me what kind of engine the GSX came with, and maybe then you'll figure out it's relevance...

    That was my whole point. Let me quote Jay again, and try to understand what he's saying (because I honestly can't); "Would it have been better to compare the 2002 LS1 to the 1996 EVO or whatever year? It's still a 4G63 with about the same power but less weight"...

    He claims that the 4G63, from the year 96' up until 06', has virtually the same power, but less weight. Again, careful inspection of my reponse to him, will point out that the 06' version is much more powerful, hence the reasoning behind me embellishing on how my buddy's GSX ran high 14's stock, with the 06' EVO running low 13....

    When he said about the same power but less weight, dont quote me but I think he meant the 1996 EVO, because it has 276hp. The DSMs were very low in power compared to any of the EVOs

    Their engine's were virtually identical, save for the EVO's slightly higher compression ration, and more boost. It's just like saying that had Mitsubishi continued building the GSX, the 2006 model (again, theoretical), would be much more faster than it's 96' model (making for a much better comparo)....

    I was like this once upon a time, I was so hung up on factory comparison's. I got back from the track about two hours ago (was a spectator tonight), and a 1987 Grand National (running street legal 9's) literally raped anything and everything that lined up next to it (including a new, well driven, ZO6). In the end anything can be made fast, either from the factory, or in one's own freaking garage...

    I got next to a TA yesterday mourning on my way to work. We were alone on a big street and it was still kind of dark outside. I reved my engine once and paced at his speed next to him for a couple seconds. But he never showed a sign of wanting to go. So i just drive a little faster and left him alone. Some day maybe.

    You are hilarious, I've owned two LS1's. They are cheap to afford. The EVO is in it's place because it could do everything but better.

    Or maybe they hear the TME turbo spool up and say, No thanks.LOL Or perhaps the sound of choppy, lopey idle from the cams flowing thru the catless exhaust.

    My man, that was priceless!!! Whats an Evo? It's an AWD turbo'd n intercooled 4cyl 4dr japanese (Mitsu) and comes with 300 some odd horses. They are great cars, not my style, I like 2dr sports cars, but they are deserving some respect.

I bet he is sitting somewhere right now with a blown motor.


    Amen!

    The quote really didn't have anything to do with what the guy said, just the fact that you are doing most of the defense for evo's on an LS1 board.

    I would guess that most LS1 types grew up around drag strips and slobbering big blocks, and only had POS 4-cylinder's for a "do I really have to" daily driver, or for their wife. It is hard for us to comprehend why the hell anyone would want a grocery-gettin' four-banger instead of a real muscle machine for their pride and joy. Chics dig Harley's and race cars, not little bitch cars that sound like a vacuum cleaner they might have to use everyday. Oh, but its got 380 awhp! OK, so it's a little bitch car with a big ass turbo. Whoopee!

    It might me fast, and this and that, but imports are like pink shirts, a real man wouldn't be caught dead in it!
