Re: GM better get there act together with new camaro SS.

and just think, the mustang is a little 5.0 litre pushing 412 hp and 390tq to the camaro's bigger cube 6.2litre pushing 426hp and 420tq. i always thought more was better, but in this case, not.

Re: GM better get there act together with new Camaro SS.

That new 5.0 is a hell of a motor. The original fox cars are the only mustang minus the 03-04 cobras that I like. I had 28 of them. I was excited to see the return, but I just wish ford would have did a new fox body. the 302 made great numbers for that time period. 225/305 stock. A gear change, exhaust, and a cone filter and you were in the mid 8's 1/8th mile. I was running low 8's in the 1/8th with 4.10s full exhaust, a F cam 512 lift 288 duration, and a set of slicks. 1/4 mile times werent that great due to the 4.10s 13.20. The new camaro really shocked the world, but Ford easily caught up. Its gonna be cool to see what Dodge does with this new power increase on the challenger srt and rt models.

Re: GM better get there act together with new Camaro SS.

Isn't it easier to make more power with smaller displacement and a dohc vs a pushrod motor? Less weight certainly helps too.

Re: GM better get there act together with new Camaro SS.

Depends on what gears the test cars have too.

I haven't kept up with what GM is offering with the Camaro, but I thought a 500 plus hp version is coming out?

I know from seeing C6's at the track that the "traction control" kills the power quite a bit so their 60's suck but watch out on the top end

No, keep making them porky. It's nice to know you can give up 50-70hp to them and still pick on them with a first gen.

I've seen mixed dyne test results. I think it's Edmonds dyno test on YouTube that shows it making the 300hp range ..

Re: GM better get there act together with new Camaro SS.

I saw these two cars being tested on the speed channel on Battle of the supercars. I could not believe it, but true. And they were not convertibles. Here is the video below.
