well this is my homeboys 5.0 mustang gt with some mods, i had raced him before and posted it up videos of me and him but now he added the boss intake and a cat back.

first we did a 30. he spun and hooked by second, then he miss shifted 4th gear and we left off
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62pcCAsOfOY&list=UUZlBX68nhTOE44RDn7IIlGg&index=3&feature=plcp

second run was a 50 roll, i passed him up at 142mph but the passenger didnt record that but i did, but i cant upload the video (its to long)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OFpbvKJng0&list=UUZlBX68nhTOE44RDn7IIlGg&index=2&feature=plcp

and last we did a 60 roll, he miss shifted so i let off and he got back on it again and so did I, you can clearly hear my car when i let off and got back on it
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7mZhAV9M7w&list=UUZlBX68nhTOE44RDn7IIlGg&index=1&feature=plcp

mods on both cars.
L99 has a tune only and straight pipes
5.0 with drag package (373s and shorty headers) CAI, boss intake, cat back, and sct programmer, it really needs a REAL tune which he is getting tomorrow and we should be running again tomorrow

He should be making 420+rwhp. My buddy has a ford racing procal canned tune and made 385, my brothers with a dynotune and CAI made 414/400 on the same dyno. With a boss intake that car should go high teens.

Key word, should. Lol. A lot of cars should run a certain time but don't due to driver error etc. I was surprised that the L99 pulled as well as it did.

Nice run though OP. Your car seems to run well for tune only.

Tell him to Rev it to 7700 with the boss. If he don't he wasted his money really. That and mat h a off road x pipe with it.

There is no racing package that comes with shorty heads. They all have the same headers. Be it a regular base model or a loaded with brembo car. There was no real track package either. You could order any combination. You could even get the brembo's(track pachage with bigger wheels to fit) with out 3.73's or other way if wanted. As the gears could just be added or ordered with what ever level wanted as I got a base with just 3.73 gears no brembo's. With manual you had 3 options with gears. 3.31's 3.55's, and 3.73's. The 3.73's option was $199 when I bought my manual car. Stupid auto's have one option. 3.15's.

Yea well camaros autos come with 327s I mean if our cars would have camed with the 373s and the 200# less than the 5.0s come with they would be killer!!!!! I run a 12.5 @ 110 the way I sit, tune only and straight pipe, If I was to have 373s and 200# less I think I will have low low 12s, btw when I ran that 12.5 # 110 my race weight was 4110 with me in it so I am happy with my camaro

I witnessed first hand a m6 5.0 run 12.4@114 stock. and 11.9@117 with DR and a tune. equal drivers there is no competition the Stang will walk the camaro. better weight to power. better gearing.

Well the guy must be a hell of a driver, cuz I havent and I seen plenty of them. No dought the stang is a bit better on the strip, I know this but it shure as hell is not what what these nut swingers say they are and its not the avg. I seen a guy in my club trap 116 in a header and tune camaro also so its not far behind. I am pretty confident my car would have traped pretty close to that if it was tuned with the headers since I traped 113 a few times. I am just saying, they can be beat and will be many times.

Best I've seen is 12.6@112mph stock and 12.4@113(nearly 114)mph with a tune. He was going to put radials on it but the wheels wouldn't clear the brakes.

But the guy who bought my brother's old POS and fixed the transmission said it went 11.8 on drag radials with a tune and CAI but 11.6 on slicks flogging the hell out of the trans.

With a huge 6k launch I could see a 11.6. Some people have been testiung the cold airs and found no gains with them.

Honestly we can go all day about how much a tune will benefit an L99 camaro, realistically if anyone has driven an L99 any type of tune will help the tranny, in stock form its terrible to say the least. Also to be fair the 5.0's A6 from the factory to me is ALOT better then the camaro's although not perfect either and that will also benefit as well from a tune. So both can be said and go either way. The camaro does well once it gets higher in the rpms and the differences in acceleration because less noticable and they are much closer stock to stock especially the LS3 compared to the 5.0. The 5.0 feels lighter and honestly it having less bottom end torque is hardly noticable to me when i drove them, mainly because of the weight of the camaro on that initial tap of the throttle. Again i sell camaro's and would love to say its a better car of the 2 but the mustang is a half step if not a full step ahead. Thats ok though because competition is why these 2 cars have survived as long as they have and you will always have biased opinions mixed with reality. In the end my preference is the new 5.0 nothing taken away from the Camaro.

They both suck in stock form for the auto. My car stock took forever to drop down and shift. It was slightly better then my G8 though. And the auto camaro I drove seemed like it wouldn't get out it's own way.

What funny is my wife sells camaro's also. She has sold 3 this month plus a few other new Chevy. She said more been buying cruzes and sonics lately.

ANY factory auto car these days blows donkey dick. They all come with long ass shit gearing, soft shifts, and no stall. Therefore, all stock auto cars have nowhere near the balls of anything with a stick for the most part. This is why I always laugh at guys that will smoke an auto LS2 GTO and go around saying they "beat" LS2 GTO's all the time.

And to the OP...vids were tough to see much and all I heard was the camaro's exhaust so it was tough to gauge what was actually going on. I've seen auto 5th gens in action.....I'm going to be honest...I don't even know how the stang did that badly against you, even being an auto. If he has all the mods you claim he does, then I would have though it would be a bit more one sided in his favor. But hey a kill is a kill I guess, so good kill.

Our dealership is super slow we only sell about 50-65 cars a month so were always late on what starts to sell especially when the cruze and sonic first came out we couldnt sell them. I have a cruze that i bought for the wife 1.4 turbo. I do admit GM has come a long way since the cobalt, lol.

The autos don't really suck as far as gearing. The tuning from the factory is weak. But even with just 3.27s you still are in 4th before the traps. It takes a good tune on an l99 car for it to perform to its potential. They pickup crazy torque under the curve and tq mgt is ridiculous from the factory.

Gearing probably isn't so bad anymore (unlike the wonderful 2.73 option on the auto 4th gens) but they do come with overly "soft" setups. I'm sure it has a lot to do with manufacturers offering better warranties and trying to prolong the tranny life. Still, it sucks to buy a brand new auto car only to tune it for much better performance and harder shifting, and then lose your warranty lol.

Roman, I have only pulled the crash supports behind the front and rear fascias to free up about 50 lbs. Oh and the Sway bar, engine cover, saved weight with the lts, and washer bottle delete to make room for the cai scoop. 3900 with me and a 1/4 tank of fuel.

For the track this time, I have the front pass seat, rear seats, trunk liner carpet, shock rods for truck and hood removed, and the compressor kit out. Should be around 3750-3780 with a 1/4 tank and me.

You can rev the 5.0 to 7800 easy no issue.

thats the 5.0s dyno sheet, the one i just raced he went to the dybo and installed a nitrous kit too, the day after this race happened and yes at first he didnt want to tell me he was on spray, so i did my lil research and the only way to get to 500rwhp (with his mods) is to either on a 150 shot of dope, OR cam heads and full exhaust (which i knew he didnt have) so i confront him and he admit it, but he said it was more like a 75 not a 150, and i asked him if he gained 121rwhp gain with just a 75 shot and he never replied back lol ...... i feel proud of myself :eyes: i made a ford owner get nitrous :devil:

Now that you mention it... I was running the gears pretty hard and had the red light every shift but I didn't feel it hit like it does in my car. Was I hitting the actual limiter or just shifting right at the redline? I know in my car when I hit the limiter you can't help but notice (and I'm pretty sure it hurts my times).

Roman, I have only pulled the crash supports behind the front and rear fascias to free up about 50 lbs. Oh and the Sway bar, engine cover, saved weight with the lts, and washer bottle delete to make room for the cai scoop. 3900 with me and a 1/4 tank of fuel.

For the track this time, I have the front pass seat, rear seats, trunk liner carpet, shock rods for truck and hood removed, and the compressor kit out. Should be around 3750-3780 with a 1/4 tank and me.

you removing the hood..???????? and i dont see a problem of you hiting that 12.3

There is no racing package that comes with shorty heads. They all have the same headers. Be it a regular base model or a loaded with brembo car. There was no real track package either. You could order any combination. You could even get the brembo's(track pachage with bigger wheels to fit) with out 3.73's or other way if wanted. As the gears could just be added or ordered with what ever level wanted as I got a base with just 3.73 gears no brembo's. With manual you had 3 options with gears. 3.31's 3.55's, and 3.73's. The 3.73's option was $199 when I bought my manual car. Stupid auto's have one option. 3.15's.


NIce kill and loss. I would expect more out the TT 1000hp 5th Gen. Yes the 5.0 comes with basically shorty headers from the factory. They are tubular headers.

ohio, i tought they didnt have shorty headers from factory..?? you said this yourself on this thread

No the hood. The lil strut that supports it.

5 liters were coming from the factory with headers since about 1988 or so.

you're taking all that stuff out of a NEW camaro?

fuck that!! i'd just toss a supercharger on it and be done. the reason for buying a beauty like that is to.....have a fast beautiful car. no reason to trash it to go a couple tenths faster.

It took 20 mins to pulls seats, the sway is staying off, that took about 30min. The misc trunk stuff took like 5 mins. It all goes back in easy.

don't misinterpret me. i wasn't meaning to be a dick this time. i used to do just what you're doing. but i did it with 67-68 mustangs. i even did it with my 83 5 liter.

it's just that now, possibly because i'm almost old......i don't want to be bothered with that. the idea of having a beautiful car that i can simply drive to the strip, click off some times that equal or exceed what i used to do after pulling all that stuff.....then coming back down the return road with the a/c on is more appealing to me now.

that......and the new camaros are the best looking that've been built since the 69.......if i owned one, i just couldn't bring myself to pull that stuff out. as it is, i've got the boss302 air dam sitting in the back room of my shop......i can't make myself pull the fascia off of my gt to install the dam gthing.

LOL, i know what your saying man. It took me a little while before I was ok with doing anything with it. The weather here in the south is heating up, and basically now is my chance to get a good slip, or i'll be waiting till fall due to our shitty humid muggy weather..lol.
