Thumbs up got beat but not in my camaro lol

hey guys just wanted to share a death. im on hwy 59 going north coming back for the movie's with a friend. im in my 04 cadillac escalade ext the truck has the lq9 6.0 w 345 hp 380 ftlbs of tq and all wheel drive. truck is quick for what it is[i beat my cousins 04 titan that has an intake and exhaust ans a hemi ram that has the same mods. so im rolin along and some how im next to a trailblazer ss it was a nice blue color. so we are next to each other about 75mph and we both hit it i catch 2nd and was even to about 95-100 then he slowly started pulling me. i would of thought they where quicker than that. i see the truck around town where i live and would like to catch him in my camaro just wanted to share.

Not that quick, but a single-cab base model is a low-15s truck in the right conditions. MIGHT be able to dip in the 14s, but I haven't heard of that happening. Nissans trucks are pretty quick for trucks... my '05 Frontier Crew Cab V6/6spd ran 10.0 @ 70mph first time out at the track with 2.4-2.5 60' times. I was interested to see what it would run with intake/headers/exhaust and an LSD. Ate up a Hemi Ram Crew Cab on the freeway once, pretty funny

Nissan needs to man up and tweak that 5.6L titan engine then drop it in the 350z, rename that biatch a 560z

I've been saying that since 2003...

*OR* Put a forged rotating assembly in the 4.0 V6 block and a better h/c/i package... that would make some good power I'd wager.
