    It will probably just be a drivers race. He makes more power but hes got more weight. Just run him and see what happens.

    It will be close if you can drive. But only way to know and tell is to race.

    Race and see, misshift and he'll be correct on his prediction. Keep in mind that he's making maybe 420 with his mods vs. your 330+. Your advantage would be the suspension and hopefully a better launch vs. the Goat. Anything can happen, hell he might sit and spin and leave you wide open.

    For you it will be all in your launch. I have raced my friends 06 goat and he hooks and takes off. While I was spinning. From a roll he has the slightest edge and this was when both of us was stock, and both a4's. With him being mostly stock and your mods I say u get him by a length or half a length.

    As said depends on your shifts, if you lose it's not your cars fault.

    It should be a drivers race since he is heavier and you have some suspension work and without a tune the a4 is trash in a race. My friends z28 would walk me until I got the tyranny tuned and raised the shift points if changes the way the cars drive at wot. Also with the GTO using 3.23's I am guessing that is another killer in the 1/4 compared to when I swapped mine to 3.73's on my TA . Do I would say he has the HP advantage but not anything you shouldn't be able to compensate for with good driving. Go race him I am curious since most 6.0 GTO's around hear have a lot more mods so I am waiting to go goat hunting after the 3200 stall and cam to even the playing field. I'll try to vid some soon as everything is in an tuned in a week or 2.

    LS2 = 50+ more hp over LS1 plus 35 lb/tq and higher 6600 rpms vs the 6250 in the LS1 (GTO speaking).

    Wrogn! GTO's do NOT use 3.23, they use 3.42. Yes, all of them, not an option, all GTOs come with the 3.42 rear, manual and automatic. Also, the 05/06 gets a better tranny than the F-body LS1 and the LS1 GTO. It doenst have quite the same issues with torque management and coupled with the 3.42 gears and the higher RPMs of the LS2 he should walk away from the Camaro. I am saying it will probably be close at the 60' and then the GTO ahead by .2 at the 1/8 and then .3 to .4 at the finish......no whear near 5 cars though......lol .5 seconds is roughly what, 1.5-2 cars at the finish?

    I dont think so. I am picking the GTO. If he has drag bags ($110/1 hour mod) he will hook up and be gone. He SHOULD be in the 12s if he can drive and hook up decent.

    Depends on how fast you are going.


    Just race em' and find out. Dissecting the cars really doesn't show anything. On paper is one thing, on the street is entirely different.

    Both launching and running to full potential the GTO should win. In saying that I figure this will be within 2 cars at the end of the track and 2-4 mph.

    But the camaro could win, not saying it wont happen but all signs point to the GTO winning. A well driven F-body though is nothing to sneeze at. Equal launches the GTO wins but if the camaro can get a good launch he could be neck and neck or pull out the win.

    Either way just race and hace fun.
