Don't suppose you'd 'have' to, but it would definitely be in the best interest. Although there are plenty of F body Camaro's with crazy HP that don't run a 'true' dual exhaust system.

Well your dad doens't want you modding the hell out of your car and killing yourself ... thats why and respect that he's looking out for you.


And for a supercharger, yeah you want the exhaust to breath like crazy, no cats, to duals

But a single FI exhaust I speak of basically goes from some manifolds to a Y pipe through some fan blades around and out, down, and back to how ever you want to do it, dual or single ...

Who cares what it costs. We've already been over that fact so make a new argument.

1,200$ on a stock 3.8 could get me into the low 14's or 13's. Wouldn't be hard at all ...

Whats and LSx based car ? You mean their is faster then a 2v ?!?!
Like I stated before!.. I have stock gears!.. So please do share what are your mods and about how much did it cost for you to run with a bolt on GT?.. Also some of that $1,200 was to pay some one else to do some of the work for me, as I did not have the time or proper tools!..

I loved my 2000 v6 to death!!! We put in lots of time, money, and heart into that car! We threw in a new screamin' demon coil pack, livewires, bbk cold air intake, true dual exhaust, a shift kit, a detroit tru trak LSD, and some 4:10 gears! That car flew off the line and kept up with stock GT's... and was well on its way to beating them! I loved that car... lost it in an accident a couple years ago! Those v6's have more potential than GT owners realize!!! I respect the v6's even though I am now a GT owner...

If any one reads this whole thread, and not just the parts you pick, they will see you making comments such as!.. How I suck at life!.. 1200$ and can only run low 14s!.. How pathetic!...

Even though I know you will not answer it!... How much cash did you blow just to run low 14s?...

You have not reported a single post to us. You instead take it upon yourself to publicly berate other members and complain that things aren't the way you want them.

This is my last warning to a select group of people here. If you can not act like adults then you will be banned from posting.

to the op, save some money, find some used forced induction and you will never look back. (except for the rear view to see the gt you just waxed )

Vortech's occasionaly come about. Your very limited on setups honestly.
Im a n/a guy, ill tell you to go FI. The FI guys will tell you not to waste your time/money.

Vortech probably will barely break 300whp, not 100% sure on that though.
99% of people who go N/A build go Nitrous, then go supercharger, then go turbo.
Spend 5x the amount they should have instead of going turbo from the start.

I will HIGHLY reccomend you look into that if you seriously plan on modding and going FI.

I know a couple people who can make you some of the stuff you need for a turbo, do not fall for ebay kits.
I promise if you plan on going this fara turbo is what you want to do !!!!

Plan out your build and go from there!.. If you want power now a SC is generally the way to go!.. If you want top end power then go turbo!..

Re: what does it take to outrun a GT?

turbo will make more power than a vortech/procharger unless you go with a really big turbocharger.

Or as JT did, get a turbo that spools at abou 2800 and have top and low end.

All depends on your set up, most big turbo set ups dont get much low end, do it right and you'll be all like wtf is a whipple ?

not necessarily. a vortech/procharger's boost is rpm based so that is top end power. turbo can be for any end of the spectrum.

Awe I wish I could buy it but I'm a teen and I lost my job I don't want to heavily modify my car. I'll look around. When I get the money I will get divorced duals and a procharger

How much hp you make with the prochager?

not really sure. on a stock motor with 11lbs, you will hit around 300rwhp. i have ran 7.75 @89mph in the 1/8th on 12lbs, have a built motor though.

Re: what does it take to outrun a GT?

Well, americanmuscle has a kit I think for a procharger or something.

If your an automatic, it'll hold. T5, not so much.
rear end, just fine a 8.8 from a GT, its the same axles anyways, and its a direct swap if you get it from the same body style.

I race my friends GT auto at the 1/8th alot and win. 230whp stock auto and an 8.8 w/ 3.73 gears. The extra tq and hp from a procharger will give you what you need to not need a lower gear like that. You'd whoop up on him easily.
