    TBSS vs 08 Bullitt

    Six months ago I started a new job. I got to be friends with these two guys at work, one owning an 07 vette and the other an 08 bullitt. The two guys would race after work all the time with the mustang getting bent over regularly. Once I showed up I began to educate them on the wonderful world of modding. Soon they caught my disease and decided to step it up.

    The vette now sits at 451/450 with bolt ons and a cam and the bullitt with a catback and programmer, though the goal is lts and a s/c before the end of the yr.

    So on to the race. Lately I've been driving the wife's ride as I'm swapping to an auto. I raced the guy with the bullitt several times in the past and easily beat him from any speed. Now with his programmer he wanted to run again. So we go to the regular spot and go from 10mph. I honk it off and he's right beside me. He shifts to second and his car lunges about a half a car ahead. Through the rest of second he might have gained another foot. He hits 3rd and again he pulls another half link. I'm giving the little suvette all she has but its not looking good.

    The rest of the race he no longer pulls me but I am unable to gain any ground. At 130mph we shutdown with me a couple of feet from his back bumper. Its obvious his programmer helped but the biggest mod he did was with the driver. Over the last few months he has made huge improvements. I did let him know that I'd be driving my stang monday or tuesday and to prepare for a raping, lol.

    If you don't mind spending alittle extra, I'd skip the tbss and go for the srt-8. It is better than the tb in every way except it won't tow as much. Our tb is fully loaded but the interior is a joke. Very plain and boring.

    That's GM for ya. If they put as much time into the interiors and other smaller things they would be a much better car company. The GTO's interior is awesome compared to anything else. I test drove a 2010 Camaro SS yesterday and the interior on those sucks as well.

    Feels about the same as the (LS2) GTO stock.
