false.

nice run man! 35 rolls are a bad spot for the l99's (well at least in my experiences) but that guy should get a dyno tune and tune that transmission. a trans tune really wakes the car up (shift points, firmness, etc)

Love this! LS1 STILL kicking some ***. Great motor. I have to hand it to GM.

BTW, if the L99 Camaro were to be a manual transmission, would it have made a difference? Just curious if they run harder than the Auto

the LS3 camaros (m6's) don't have the VVT or cylinder shut off which which results in them being rated higher from the factory (426hp to our 400). but i doubt it would have made any difference just looking at the way the ls1 was pulling

Not as embarrassing as L76 G8's. We are down 40 horsepower and up 200 lbs on the Camaro, plus we come with terrible rear end gearing.

true. I ran one when my 02 was basically stock and I beat it even worse than in this vid.

most l99's run mid 13's at best around 105 which is a good race for a 3v.

a little. stock l99's dyno hardly any more at the rear wheels than an ls1 car. except they weigh almost 4000 pounds.

Alot of people under estimate the L99. Fact is they are just as fast as the ls3 run around the same times.

Hypertech. I thought that was for guys in slow *** trucks who had intakes and ran 16s. Take that **** off the SS and get a real dyno tune.

This. I think a good tune helps them a lot. I ran my sisters bone stock L99 against my buds M5 3V stang that has a tune, X-pipe, 4.10s and DRs(13.2 is his PB). From a dig he was about 3 cars ahead by 110. She runs nothing but 87 in it though and it felt weak honestly.

Nice run… The 5th Gens are really having a tough time taking down their older siblings. No doubt that this will change, once the paint fades a little, the ashtrays get dirty, the bolsters chafe and the second and third owners tear into them.
