price for peformance the camaro will win imo. i think the boss 302 will be way over priced. upwards of 40k.

Throw a few more mods into that SS and see the outcome.

I personality didn't even know the 2011 model was out, but it's cool to see the small improvements. I really like the new seat color designs and they now have HUD. The v6 got a little boost too.

If price is part of your equation the BOSS is going to cost a bit more than a 1SS or 2SS.

It won't. Its an extremely close race between the Camaro and the GT right now. If the Boss is gonna pack 28 more horses then bone stock it'll crush the camaro hands down. The question is whats that extra 28hp gonna cost you. Ford is definately playing hardball, I think an LS7 camaro is in order.

Either way the Boss is a 2012 and the Z28 will cost more and be aimed at the GT500. We don't know if GM has any changes in store for the 2012 SS other than interior and won't know for almost a year. I don't see GM doing nothing in response to the Boss. I would love to see a "1LE" based on the Z06 carbon mindset meaning it's an SS that gets some lightweight Z28 parts and an HP bump.

Why on earth would you regret your purchase. If you are looking for a great car that responds very well to mods then you got it but if you are looking for the fastest car on the planet right out of the box then I think the Bugatti should be on your list for your next purchase.. I also regret that you bought the Camaro, because then I wouldn't be subjected to this girly post.. Please trade it in asap for the Ford before you wet your bed!!

My LS1 is a lean, mean, mother ****in, tire shredding beast that preys on unsuspecting mustangs like the 5.0 that bit the dust of my well oiled machine. I posted how many youtube vids to prove it?

I figured that some of 5th gen camaro owners would have regrets because the new 5.0 runs faster than the camaro. I think you shouldn't regret your purchase. If that's the case of you having regret, then you may think that you made a $33,000 mistake. Usually, when a new car comes out, I wait awhile longer before I buy it. Within that time frame, carmakers usually tweaks, work out all the bugs, revise the application for that car to have more hp/tq than when it first came out. In example, like what they did with 04gto LS1 to 05/06 gto LS2. Sometimes, it's good to be patient. So what...the 5.0 is faster than the camaro. Make yours faster. We can say stock for stock and all that. I say run what you brung.

The Mustang is faster, but you are in a chevy forum, what are you going to expect to hear for the most part.. The modding to make it as fast doesn't fly with me.. so what is going to happen when the mustang guy spends $ modding his car? He still will be faster...


The new Camaro is awsome... you will never be the fastest.. except now there's one more car faster than yours.. lol
