    Stock to stock the WS6 should win, but it would be a close race. Where for you a stock 2008 Challenger R/T Automatic vs a 1999 Trans Am WS6 LS6 H/C/I Pacesetter headers Corsa Exhaust would be a

    The big difference in the two cars is weight, the Challengers are heavier then your WS6

    The Challenger's run a 13.2 ET out of the factory where your well moded WS6 should be well in to the 12s with your mods, pending traction I'd say 12.4ish

    A 2008 challenger would be lucky to run 13.7 in the quarter. My brother-in-law has one, its a real pig. Takes awhile for it to get started. Gears are like a 3:06.

    LOL! GO to Dyno one day with both cars.

    R/T is Rated 375 hp at crank. 5-speed auto 333hp 368tq RWHP Dynod. Another Auto R/T RWHP: 334.5 RWTQ: 352.4 Dynoed

    Edmunds Tested R/T at 14.1 in 1/4th
    0-60-mph run of 5.9 seconds
    4,041 pounds Stock LS1 would woop that.

    Wait. So your buddy's car is an R/T? NOT THE SRT8?

    Shouldn't be much of a race then. The R/T Hemis are running low 14's.

    A stock WS6 would beat one.
