  1. Chevy rated the Chevy Z28 at 290 hp, when it really had 360 hp. And Chevy knew that it had 360.

    Where did you hear that?
     
  3. Re: Listen to this.

    360 at the flywheel dickhead.... at the flywheel. not the tires. it puts 290 to the ground which is where it counts and where the little ***** will stay if he messes with a 2003 cobra

    I'ml pretty sure it was for insurance reasons.

    Read it in MT's article on this car.

    Chevrolet would never misrepresent an hp rating.

    actually potty mouth... all cars were rated at the flywheel back then... it was advertised 285 hp at flywheel, but made 390 at the flywheel...

    Chevy admits to mislabeling power in the 60s
    the 427 was rated at 435 for one year, then changed to 425 with no modifications to help insurance prices

    Dodge got away with calling the Hemi only 425 HP, and when insurance companies saw chevy claiming more power than the hemi, they raised rates a lot, even though the chevy couldn't touich the Hemi, all in the labeling

    ACTUCALLY, stock for stock, the Camaro would pull any Mustang save for the '03 Cobra and all the fancy little Saleens and whatnot.

    You cannot mess with LS1 power, it will dominate your silly 4.6
     
  11. Re: Listen to this.

    Amen. Anyone who could even come close to considering themselves a "car guy" would know LT1s and LS1s especially, rape Mustangs all day long, save for the '03 Cobra and Saleen's. BUT... notice how Mustangs need superchargers to stay in the game with F-Bodies. Pathetic.
     
  12. Re: Listen to this.

    I couldn't agree anymore with you. And thats the truth.
     
  13. Re: Listen to this.

    and jus imagine if an LT1 or LS1 had a supercharger! then theyd smoke those 'Muskrats' even worse!
