    GS driver was broken. Having owned a Intake/O.R X/ Tune/3.73 5.0 , I can say a GS with a competent driver would have destroyed me from a dig and pulled away from me up top.

    Those GS's are no slouch.
    - Left the 5.0 game and grabbed myself an M7 C7. OP needs to do the same. It's another world!

    I ran a 12.2 @114 with a tune, driveshaft and upper and lower control arms. Stock Pirellis. I don't find the close races unbelievable.

    I believe it. Lots of folks talkin shit in here but its more of a drivers race. In my 12 with headers/no cats/ tune only vs a C6 base with headers I jumped ahead of him from 60-120 and he reeled me in from 120-140. His nose was maybe 3-4 feet in front of mine.

    No they are not. [email protected] are you insane? We are talking about a C6 LS3 manual GS. The heaviest C6 made. And add to that a manual. They are mid 12 cars at 115 MAYBE with a good driver. I know, I had one. They make 385 at the wheels and just over 400 with a tune. You might be thinking about A8 C7 stingrays touching 11's. Not a GS C6. No way. The GS and S197 5.0 are very evenly matched. I had three of those 5.0's too, before and after the GS. Raced several 5.0s with my GS too and it was neck and neck every time when stock to stock. You are not correct on this.

    Old thread is old but this is a fun one. Additional data point, stock tune premium 12' trapped 115mph with some lightweight wheels and tires. Oh and i mention my brothers z51 ls3 car trapped 116 stock at the same track...but thats a lighter car.

    Every model has a car that can put up hero runs.

    Most stock 11-14 5.0’s trap 110-113 or so... definitely NOT 115 or better.

    Same can be said for the LS3 c6. Maybe 1-2mph better than the mustang.

    It’s a drivers race between those two cars.
