new Camaro SS vs GTO

A friend of my son's got a new Camaro SS, Has some mods lt's, tune, intake etc,, Anyway he was talking about how bad he would beat my GTO, I let him talk and think what he wanted, I figured I would one day catch him at a stop light and put this matter to rest, Today was that day, I caught him at the stop light, Told him to go when he was ready, He hit it hard but not hard enough, I let him have a one and a half car head start before I nailed it, Caught him just as I went into second gear, As soon as I was one full car length ahead I got out of it, All he could do was grin and go on his way, I think I proved my point, A little later his brother came by and said some guy put a whoop'n on his brothers Camaro with a GTO, I just laughed and said tell me more about this GTO, All in good fun.

05 GTO/A4 Just some bolt ins 1.7461 60' 4.9649 330' 7.1500 594' 7.6440 1/8 mi. @ 91.10 mph.

Just some bolt ins,,,,, ZL402 from SLP, Higher stall converter, Stock gears on the stock tires, Did the engine swap at 600 miles, I bought the car to drag race, I've ran a best 8.10 e.t. in the 1/8 mile on the stock radials and the 7.6's on the drag radials, Been on the stock radials all summer long, Not much chance getting to the track this year with all the overtime I've been working.

Currently it puts down 355 hp and 360 tq sae on a dynojet, Before it put down more, I had problems getting it down the track, Kept crossing the centerline, So I had it tuned for the tires thats on the car, Spinning is not winning in my book, I can tell you a detune helped greatly, My fenders are not cut and the suspension is bone stock, No dragbags, Eventually I hope to have it tuned back up after I get the rest of the suspension pieces in place, All the power in the world is no good if you can't hook it up, My goal was 7.50's when I started this project, So I'm not that far off from reaching it.

what cam did you go with? 91 thru the 1/8. Sounds a little high for a bolt-on car. Nice win on the Çamaro.

For a bolt on car 91 isn't impossible, Then again its not a bolt on car either, since when is a bored and stroked engine considered bolt on, The bolt ins is a play on words, I wanted it to look as stock as possible, Its what you don't see that is the secret, I'm running the stock 243 heads, stock intake, stock tb, What looks to be a stock transmission from the outside, What I didn't say was what is done to each of those components, When you race for money, Its not a good idea to tip your hand to the competition, Or you will never get anyone to race you for money, The cam I'm running is in the SLP catalog, So your guess is as good as mine. I'm running a very conservative tune for now, Since I don't plan on going back to the track anytime soon.
