    My chevelle made 638 flywheel hp on a DTS dyno without any accessories and it weighs 4,108 lbs with me in it. With a small 275 drag radial and through the mufflers it went 11.40 at 118 mph.
    Never had it on a chassis dyno but I'm sure it's no dyno queen in that department pushing through a 400 turbo, 3600 stall and a 12 bolt. Not to mention turning a power steering pump, water pump etc...
    If I'm lucky I might see 500rwhp, but that's not really a concern for me. The overall setup is what makes the car run the way it does.
    Didnt say it would be easy, but getting all the 1/4mile potential out of a car rarely is. Someone said they have yet to see a stock bottom end 5th gen hit 9s. That bottom end has already proven to hold 630whp, and 630whp is more than enough to get a car into the 9s if someone or some shop would setup the rest of the car.

    THANK YOU! i love how these "speed" shops idea of a track camaro is a S/C, a body kit, lowering springs and some different 19s or 20" rims ..and of course some custom badges.


    i sure hope GM gets off their ass and offers a true track package. like some aggressive gearing, 16-17" lightweight wheels with good wide rubber on it. some poly bushings, a special tune, and some accessory delete option on the interior.


    id love to see a camaro with the cobra R ideology.

    i believe most of that comes from no airbags etc ..and i believe both the maro and the challenger have all those damn airbags. on top of that no A/C and such...i just cant wait for the gen 6 on the new lighter platform ..im feeling good about the camaro here in a few years

    Beleive it not Ford didnt put all they have into the '11. My friends dad use to race abck in the 80's and stopped for a while after some misfortunes. Well he bought a gt500 just too fool around with. He end up putting some of his own ideas into the car and it threw some codes and wouldnt pass emissions. he called ford and ford couldnt believe the numbers he was making without a cam or headers. FORD sent 2 engineers from Detroit to his house check out his car and paid for the dyno and couldnt believe they're eyes. The engineers are offering to use his upgrades in the 2012 stang. All I'm saying is look for the name McKay in articles next year, the mans an automotive genius.

    On a side note. everyone can bitch and gripe but its about time we got some competition, theyve been called shistangs for a while for a reason, I commend a good rival. im stickin with my 00 ws6, cause when it comes down to a 5.0 beating a stock ws6 by a second I feel pretty good knowing Nymph (thats what I named her) can almost keep up with fords glory child.

I really don't expect a lot of increase in performance for the SS, because GM doesn't want to make the Z28 (which should be a slightly heavier car) irrelevant.
    I agree, I dont think you'd have to dig too deep. I cant remember where I read it but I heard Gm had to tune down the new camaro so it wouldnt impede vette sales. a more aggressive cam and a good tune i dont see the gt's standing a chance.

    Pretty neat vid. I wonder what all they removed to drop weight. I noticed the fogs were gone between the dyno and run. Curious if they gutted a lot of the car and still call it stock'ish.

    List of old cars

    1993 Mustang LX 5.0
    1996 Corvette LT4
    2000 Trans AM WS6
    2001 Mustang GT (Had to do it 0% financing and WS6 was a 600 dollar a month payment)
    2004 Dodge SRT-4
    2005 Pontiac GTO

    Still have the SRT-4 Stage 3 and the fastest out of all the cars listed. Then again it has the most mods.

    All of the cars list except the 93 LX 5.0 had a good amount of bolt on mods.

    All were fun cars but I get bored easy and change cars more than I should.

    I think I would end up keeping the 2011 Mustang for a while but it would not stay stock for long.
    I had an 03 SRT-4. You talk about a fun little car...and ver nice to mod. I had the Stage 2 kit on mine.

    I hear you on that, but you have to remember that this is the "new" ford. Old Ford was stuff like the shitty 3.0 OHV Taurus, 6.0 Powerstroke, 4.0 Exploders, and 215HP V8 Mustangs. Vehicles that many people think of when they think of Ford. Myself included.

    New Ford is the Edge, Fusion, new F-150, 5.0 Mustang, ect.

    In all seriousness they should get an award for largest improvement in product design and quality over the last 10 years. Its been drastic.
