Re: MUSTANG KILLER???FORD SUCK

Discussion in '2001 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe' started by 70SuperBee, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. It rumbles with the throat of a thunderstorm on Main Street, and there's a roll cage and a racing driver's seat (which is connected to the factory six-way adjuster, by the way). If no one looks close, maybe they won't suspect that this car has been built by SLP as both a rolling testbed and showcase of the company's F-Car products. It can lift the front tires a foot off of the ground and cover a quarter-mile in 10 seconds. Even though it weighs 3,600 pounds with the driver aboard and the air conditioner still works, the stroked LS1 cranks out 550 big horses to move this basically stock Camaro impressively. During our photographer's drive time, he was able to induce wheel-spin at 45 miles an hour, and from a dead stop he invoked the phrase "fuhgeddaboudit" which describes any attempt to avoid a burnout. This is all with the shifter in "D." Of course, the "Loud Mouth" exhaust was a constant reminder of this 382ci LS1's potential and might have encouraged one or two "hard starts."
    SLP began with a box-stock '00 model year Z28 that ran 13.6 and, according to chief engineer Brian Reese, "started adding our own parts." Appearance components including the hood, rear spoiler, and graphics were first. Then they enlarged the stock 346ci LSI with a longer-stroke crankshaft, rods, and pistons. CNC-ported heads, a beefed up valvetrain, and an 85mm mass air meter (a reprogrammed Delphi unit originally intended for 6.0L LS1 truck engines), and this small-block churned out 500 hp and 490 lb-ft of torque. With the installation of SLP's prototype "Stage II" heads with 2.02/1.57 valves, enhanced porting, and a deeper resurfacing cut to raise compression to about 11.5:1, they added another 50 hp, resulting in approximately 550 hp. Great for a naturally aspirated small-block! Exhaust comes through tuned-length headers (about 33 inches), "off road" race pipes instead of cats, and "Loud Mouth" exhausts (essentially in-line expansion chambers instead of mufflers). The computer is reprogrammed, and the rearend has been switched out for an SLP/Moser prepped 12-bolt with 4.11:1 gears turning 10.5-inch DOT Mickey Thompson's. The factory 4L60E is still in place, although it's been beefed up and a higher-rpm stall converter has been fitted.
    Even though we may do without Camaros for a while, it's nice to know that there is some awesome potential in the ones we can still get our hands on.if you are selling a Camaro less than $250 in california area or welling to ship it .......e-mail me at [email protected](any year)

    Well I always believed that everyone is basically brainwashed! When I was 16 and was getting my first car well all my friends were like GET A MUSTANG! I asked why. All the said is they are fast!! and once again I said why. THey said THERE MUSTANGS! Well dumb as I was I bought a 2000 V6 and had it for 6 months. I hated that car it was soooo slow! Finally I went to a LA auto show and saw a poster of a Camaro SS. I fell in love. After then I always loved the Camaro and Firebird. SO anyways I went out and sold my mustang and got a Blue Z28 and have been happy with it for about a year now. So I have learned a lot that GM knows how to make there cars and that the mustang is all just hype. Everyone can only say hey ITS A MUSTANG!! <!-- Signature -->

    Nice sig... F-Bodies will always be around [email protected], I hate stupid idiots like you that think just because a car isn't going to be made anymore that it means it not going to be around either. Well guess what, GM might bring back Camaro and Trans-Am in the near future with even more hp. Oh and by the way 390hp (supercharged) Mustang... now that something to really brag about. *rolls eyes* Ford should grow some balls and just drop in a better engine. And heres a news flash Einstein, 03 Cobras are meant to compete with Vettes not F-Bodies. "I hate people who think they know everything, when they really don't."

  8. Re: MUSTANG KILLER???

    I have noticed one thing, chevy fans are all crybabies. Once you compare a better Ford to a Chevy, they all start crying and saying dumb $hit. Chevy has a reason for discontinueing the Camaro, it can't compete with the Stang. I could buy an SS Camaro for $32K or a Cobra for $29K. Both are about the same performance wise. I could add exhaust to the Stang and it will be faster than the Camaro, yet still cost less. You tell me why Mustangs outsell Camaros. Now that GM is deleting the Camaro/Firebird, Ford has to make its Mustang compete with the Corvette, and the 2003 Cobra does that. I wonder if the rumors about a totally badass 2004 Mustang are true.
     
  9. Re: MUSTANG KILLER???

    o.k. let's compare the commemorative edition 5.0L 302 c.i. 2003 410+ hp camaro z28 to the 385 hp 2003 4.6L crustang cobra. Est. z28 cost: 35,000+, cobra 45,000+(if you're lucky)=mustang loses. 5.0L(302) vs. 4.6L(281) close call. 410+ hp vs. 385 hp, crustang loses. stock vs stock comparison, right? you decide which is better...

  15. Re: MUSTANG KILLER???

    So Thats why I spent $65000CND on my Saleen, You're right, I suppose It sucks. I'm going to have to sell it and buy a Camaro now. Damn I thought I had a good car.
    Well Mustang fans, I'm gone, have fun getting smoked.

    I hope I can get back all the money I paid for it...

    Maybe I'll just buy a Civic and kick myself in the ass while I'm at it.
     
  16. Re: MUSTANG KILLER???

    Goodbye rustang F-bodies are awsome dont even compare the cobra R to this compare it to the Z06 you ford pussies- lets see it beat that
    02'SVT Cobra- 12.9
    02'Z06 12.6
     
  17. Re: MUSTANG KILLER???

    yea you should sell it, because it really isnt worth the money at all. The camaro is cheaper and yet still faster, and will ultimately get way more HP out of the bigger engine. Either way, if you got the supercharged or the regular, (365 to 285hp) it doesnt have the HP from the liters, and plus chevy can do it without superchargers. Im going to go buy a truck, the typhoon, or a syclone, for a hell of a lot cheaper and faster, ill save money and go faster at the same time.
    now look at these comparisons.

    i wont compare the Sy/Ty to any of these cause its obvious whats faster.....so ill just do the stock jimmy. ridiculous? look again...


    1993 Mustang GT - 5.0l V8 - 215hp
    1993 GMC Jimmy - 4.3l V6 - 230hp
    it gets worse...

    1993 SVT Lightning - 5.8l V8 - 230hp
    1993 GMC Jimmy - 4.3l V6 - 230hp
    holy shit how can an engine be so....bad?

    1994 SVT Mustang - 5.0l V8 - 240hp
    1993 GMC Typhoon - 4.3l V6 - 330hp

    i rest my case.
