First Loss

I was on HWY 270 East near Edwardsville IL when a guy in a 2000 ish WS6 pulled up next to me at about 65. We did three runs from 65 to about 115 and I got nosed out every time, less that a quarter of a length. I could tell he had exhaust, and had the pillar gauges. anyone have any expierence with a stock WS6 that could give me a base line of what this guy may have had?
I drive an 05 6 MT completely stock at the time.
Thanks

what's wrong with you boys and the ws6's? i drove a 02 ws6 and it didn't feel all that impressive compared to my goat. just remember these car are around and mods for them are easy and cheap. they have a solid axle we don't. good luck next time. get some mods and be prepared. win some lose some

Koman's right. Mods come alot easier and cheaper (and there are more available) for the F-bodies.

And being 300-or so pounds lighter doesn't hurt either.

He probably had a head/cam package. Most LS1 F-bodies get that or a nitrous kit. Every once in awhile you will run across some that are supercharged or twin turboed. Sounds like its time to mod yours.

I was thinking he had at least a cam. I have never heard before or since a T/A that sounded like that one. As far as mods go, I have installed the Brute Force CAI, and as soon as the fundage allows, a Corsa Touring Cat back is planned along with a short throw shifter. Any other relatively inexpensive mods that will net some sort of power?

Depends on what your term of inexpensive is. I would also suggest getting headers, cam, and a good tune. That and what you are planning on getting will make some good power.

If that WS-6 had a head/cam combo, it would've destroyed the Goat. Sorry, just the way it is. He prolly just had a few minor bolt-ons. It's a drivers race stock for stock.......

I had an 02 and an 01 LS1 Z28. 1 was a stick and the other an auto. It takes a lid and a catback for the LS1 F-body to equal a GTO. That comes from owning both. If you put headers on the F-body it's a winner, but close. Add gears which most do and the GTO is in trouble.

Stock for stock though the LS1 F-body is a few tenths behind.

I didnt get a chance to talk to the guy because he and his girlfriend were too busy laughing at me and they took the next exit off the highway. I guess I was just irritated that I got beat by such a small margin, and that car sounded very mean. Almost pissed off!
There is always next time I guess...
