    WS6 with stock tires and all not even broke in engines go 12.99....highest ive seen with a Z28 or reg trans am is 13.5...thats a half second difference?????
    Bullshit...

    "15RWHP" more for a WS6 just cause the damn hood? Bullshit...Fastest Z28, 13.5? Bullshit (maybe for a auto...). Not to mention 15rwhp doesn't equate to a fucking half a second at the end of the track. Pretty much everything in that one big ass run on sentence is bullshit.

    That's what Getcha01 made it out to be not us. He doesn't know what he's talkin about anyway. I think it's hilarious that a guy won't spend a few hundred more for a decent clutch. Can't count how many times I've read a guy got 15,000miles out of a SPEC (or less, like that's good or something), then says he's gonna replace it with another SPEC.

    First off, you have a 6 speed, he has a auto. Stock auto vs. 6 speed with a descent driver, 6 speed will when easy. Second, that WS6 was either a factory freak, and/or they had a shitty driver in the SS. Thats granted they both had the same tranny. Again, a 01 and 02, will perform slightly better than the 98-00, only because the LS6 intake, but thats NOT just the WS6s. Thats the Z28s, Formulas, Trans Ams, SS, WS6, Firehawk, etc. ALL of the v8 cars will run pretty much the same. A stripper car might have a couple tenths on a fully loaded car, but thats about it. Theres not way a WS6 is gonna be .5 faster just cause the damn hood whatever you said, cause if you knew these cars, you would know the ram air hood isn't even functional, where as the SS is...

    not just a LS6 intake you retard, dont mouth me..all of them in 01-02 had LS6 intake yes, but some had LS6 blocks which made less pressure in bottom of engine, and they all came with a truck 6.0 litre cam!...the previous LS1's lacked the bottom end torque is why they did that....and it gave the say 98 Z28 and the 01 Z28 a .5 difference....but the suspension and the ram air on the WS6 gave another .2, and also the 01 and 02 SS and WS6 engines had a lot of them were actually LS6 blocks, and the good #241 heads.....plus the motor trend test was same driver,both SS and WS6 had 3:42 gears,alum driveshafts, and 6 spds, and ran both them 10 times....the numbers dont lie hawse...some were just faster...do you have a slower one?.....shut up aqnd dont talk to me if ur gonna mouth off bud...oh and the lighter the car dont matter when ur talkin a T/A fully loaded to a WS6 or not, they may make the weight heavier but its closer to 50/50...for birdbrains the 50/50 is better....i'll take any gutted 1998-2000 Z28...that has headers,no cats,air lid,msd wires, and a aftr markt muffler, not catback,not tuned, nothing else but what I said and I know I will win by atleast 4 tenths with all my interior....

    Your posts are laughable. For starters a WS6 suspension does not give it 2 tenths. WS6s suspension is stiffer for better road handling. Anyone who does any drag racing at all knows you want the opposite. If anything the much heavier 17' wheels and lower profile will slow you down as well. 98-99s got a better cam than the 01-02s. Gains came from the exhaust manifolds and the LS6 intake.

    no but ur cam was .500 lift mine was ,470, mine was matched to my heads and intake to make more torque whiched u lacked, so when anything is done to an 01 or 02 it gives u about 30% more power than when done to ur car sweet dream buddyyyyy.....my wheels are lighter than urs u idiot I have polished aluminum, urs are coated alloy...my rims weigh 15 lbs lol.....why would they make a WS6 slower than a reg T/A, you all make NO SENSE I really have hate for you guys HATE....the suspension in them was made for both, u ever raced a WS6 from 01-02?...you notice how hard they squat compaired to your car?...kinda like drag springs?...they werent making a nascar setup you stupid $%^.....why do u T/A guys care so much...does it make u feel better that I bought my car last year and paid $15,000 for a 110,000mi WS6? I was gonna get an SS they were little cheaper and the T/A was next and they were all around like $8000-10,000, I couldnt find a WS6 under $17000 black with black interior,body like new,good carfax, and 6 speed...im sure I paid a lot more for my car than u did for yours then, there you got me, and for what I paid to have a WS6 which factory made were actually slower than T/A, I still did it because everything I read said 01-02 WS66666666 were sometimes found to be a few tenths faster than all others now F$%# off

    Wow, I don't even know where to start. A truck cam? Are you fucking serious? Not to mention, only 10% of the 01s had the LS6 block, and only about 25% of the 02 cars had it. And really, there will be NO noticeable difference between the two. Your a dumbshit who has no idea whatsoever what your talking about. 30% more power just cause yours is a 01? HA! Thats fucking classic. I don't give a shit what you run, or your buddy, or Car and Driver for that matter, my car will WALK THE DOG on your fucking WS6 ALL DAY LONG. You can barely break into the 12 second range, my car breaks into the 10s easy. And a 2.0 60ft? HA. Thats some fucking weak shit right there. I'd actually be willing to put money on it that your car doesn't even have a LS6 block to begin with. Don't even get me started on that retarded statement about the rims either. That was just fucking stupid. And as I already said, that oh so precious ram air hood of yours ISN'T FUNCTIONAL.
