LS1 powered camaros with the 6 speed manual can be 12 second cars with the right driver... most are about low to mid 13s.

So I say its a wash and depends on the driver.

310 HP for the stock LS1 Camaro vs what 270HP for your stage 2?

When and where are you doing this so I can offer support. But my money is on the Camaro.

Hmmm, Just did my calculations based on power to weight ratio. Maxtdi, is right. It's going to be damn close. Per horse the Camaro is carrying ~12 pounds of weight. Assuming you have 270 HP you are carrying ~10 pounds of weight.

It's going to come down to driver skill, tires, and differential. And it's in that order that will have the most impact on the drag race. Road Course, depends on the road itself but the Camaro will slight nudge out the you GTI until we figure in your Hankooks, and as long as the Camaro doesn't have a comparable tires (ie. still running stock tires which is doubtful) it fall down to driver skill and suspension.

His 270hp is going to be wheel, where as the camaro is crank hp. An important thing to remember. Also, the camaro probably weighs a good 600lbs more and I doubt a 12 year old car is making its full power anymore anyway. I have raced a firebird ls1 automatic and it wasn't that quick.

If you race from a roll, you will smoke him.

an LS1 puts down about 310-320 to the wheels.

How much does a stage 2 deliver to the wheels?

A 99 camaro is about 3400lbs.... And you have to shift it a whole lot less than the MKVI the 1st gear ends at 55.

You should take him,I was dead even from a 10mph roll with mine and i am stage 1, Every time he went to pull ahead he had to shift which would bring him right back next to me.I am sure at higher speeds he probably would have pulled from me.

His car also had exhaust,intake which dont really do much but just saying.

Sounds like "he" can't drive for shit. A good intake is worth about 15rwp on an LS1 the stock one is shit.

in stock form they only dyno about 20hp more than stage 2 gti's....but they weigh almost 450lbs more....it is a pretty tight race...depends on the driver and if you run from a dig or roll

the gti has a better powerband though

Similar to wearing sweatpants outside of your house, "racing Camaro's = your life is officially over".
