How well do they run? I feel like my GTO will go early 13's and I had one ripp me a new one out of the gate!! The truck act like it was on nos or some thing. Didn't seem that loud (exhaust note). From a 30mph roll it still when out on me not as bad but put 2 car in between us too 110.

Are you a M6 or A4? The Trailblazer SS is AWD, LS2 V8 with the same A4 tranny in the GTO. 0-60 times are around 5.8 secs, 1/4mile in 14.4.

Chances are that it is modded some way. The Trailblazer SS's version of the LS2 is down 10hp from our version. Add to that a lot more weight and AWD and you are looking at a considerable disadvantage stock to stock. He has to have some go-fast parts.

FYI...the SS will get only about 1/2 the milage of the GTO. Road in a fully equipped AWD just after being backed off the truck (still with plastic everywhere). Would be a great ride for my wife except for the gas milage (same with the Jeep SRT...WOW). But, gas prices as they are...and will be?

No complaints here, 14-15 in the city and 18-20 on the highway. Not bad for a 4875 lbs SUV ;)

I called the guy at work late last night a he said he had a tune air filter and a Yank 3600 stall. He said his TBSS has been 13.38 in crappy conditions and say the SS will go 12's now. From the way it ran that night I'd agree.

I drove a SS Trailblazer and it is not as fast as my 04 Goat. I was thinking about buying one but was very disappointed with the interior. If there is one that is turning in the 13's it is not stock.

That's funny, it's going to suprise a lot of people...... I wonder how the Cherokee SRT8 will do?
