45hp difference is a lot to make up. You'll need to drop weight and get different gears. That's really the V6's Achilles heel. They come from the factory with mile tall gearing to make the EPA happy. Of course, if the other guy put 4.10s on his V6, you're in for some hurt.

Gears, suspension, small bolt ons and tires..... Remember, you have a LOT more torque than the V6. I've raced a stock one at the drag strip and he was running upper 13s, he won. But I also can't launch for **** so that's where most of the time was lost.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Tune and gears should help ya out.

The v6 is heavier I believe and has 20 less tq, but we have 45 less hp. Stock 2v's can run high 13's... So it can be a drivers race. I've driven both.. The v6 is fun but it's a dog unless you rev it real high for the launch. It hauls pretty good *** at higher rpm's though. Your only chance is to use the tq advantage you have and the gears will help that out, along with a tune. Suspension is nice also

Tune

Gears

Lca's (Steeda?)

And 275's on the back.


That's a good start. Maybe upgrade your plenum too

Regardless of suspension mods, gears or practically anything else, that 3.7 will be faster from 2nd gear onward. If the 3.7 gets ahead, it will stay there.

I managed a 1.96 60 ft and ran a 13.6 @ 105.2, on stock suspension and tires with a manual trans, 2.73 gear, CAI and tune in my 3.7. I can't say that I have ever heard of a 2v doing anything close to that with the same mods.

I agree, the v6 definitely felt a lot more powerful after first gear. There have been some stock 2v's run a 13.9, so it could prolly run around that with gears and a tune. That excluding the difference between environments. If the 3.7 has a way worse driver, I think the 2v has a shot.

I could see a 100% stock 3.7 auto without the PP and an average driver losing to a lightly modded 5spd 2v with an excellent driver.

If the 3.7 has the PP, any mods at all or is a manual with a good driver, the 2v will get pulled on.
