Wow. Reading the title I thought the 5.0 was going to get pulled fairly hard. Impressive!

After reading what the mods for each car were, I thought the 5.0 was going to get drug.

With those mods on the 5.0 its easily a 120-125mph car. Really good race from a roll!

A full exhaust and tune 5.0 will make 410-420whp. Add the 75 shot and it'd be little under 500. I was expecting the 5.0 to walk away, then realized the formula has a huge stall and weighed 700lb's less. Very good race!

Then yes i would have to agree. If this is the same GT from the other vids, its never been killer fast either. Its a premium so i assume its on the heavy side.

Yeah that formula isn't very fast either. especially being that its got a custom cam, a decent amount of weight pulled, and aftermarket castings.

I agree that the ls1 should be faster for its weight and mods but still made for some good races.

my h/c set up has trapped a good amount higher and its def heavier then 3100lbs. Both cars should be mid 120s cars

Pretty easy actually. Weight just falls out. He's still got a 9 inch in the car from when it was a 6 speed.
