    VE wins, not displacement. If the turbo 2.0 is running at 300% Volumetric Efficiency, and a 6liter n/a V8 is running at 85% VE, the turbo 2.0 is going to be putting out more power, and flowing more air than the 6 liter.

    A turbo is the equivalent of extra displacement at any given VE above 100%.


    EDIT: That doesn't take into account Thermal Efficiency or Mechanical losses, which are two more things that ultimately determine an engines output.

    Any high compression engine isn't for FI, not just LS1, but then I know lot of people who have installed FI without any problems.

    I don't know where you are getting your info but just because you've worked with few stangs doesn't make you an expert of LS1.
    I guess not unreliable to the point where they are undrivable but more like little nagging issues that most f-body owners complain about. I've talked to a more than a few owners that develop that rod-knock that happens after like 30-50K miles. Stuff like that. Not that everyone or every car experiences the same thing but it's just what I see and hear. Don't get me wrong, they are pretty damn fast but... I have never been a huge fan of GM's quality, at least not in their car line (trucks are a different story).

    For example something that you are probably aware of, being a Corvette owner, is "wheel lock". One of my closest friends had a 1999 C5 that this happened to. Total pain in the ass. (For those that don't know it's where the steering column becomes locked and stays locked, even when you turn the car on, basically you can't turn the wheel). He had to rip the whole dash apart in order to pull the pin out that locks the wheel (from my understanding). Anyway, I guess it is a huge problem with C5s because I've also heard about it on many occasions from others and car boards and such. He said he was embarrassed to drive it while the dash was apart because people probably thought the stole it. I know GM is getting better in their quality but it's just stuff like that I have seen and heard that turns me off to them.

    A guy i know has a 2002 WS6, his best time was a 14.0@103mph (bone stock). Yeah he isn't a great driver, but still his trap was not that high, i guess every car is different. Another friend of mine has a 2002 WS6 and he was running 12.9@110mph but he had a few mods. It all depends on the car and driver.

    I don't doubt it, anything can happen on the street.


    I've seen my fair share of 15 - 17 second SS's at byron, so I don't doubt it. Seen more flying than crawlin though, that's for sure.

    Yeah, I guess in truth we all tend to associate the lowest times we've seen for a car with that car. If you don't spend a lot of time at a strip, you can forget that 2 different drivers/ambient conditions/tires can make a really big difference in outcome for otherwise similar models.

    NJ actually and he ran the car at the track a number of times. He never broke into the 13s. His car was bone stock down to the tires and it was a 6 speed. His traps were low and he was not trying to baby the car. My other friend that ran the 12.9@110mph had exhaust and headers and just just a much better driver. I think he ran like a 13.5@106mph stock in his car. Im just pointed out, i have seen a stage II 05 trap at 103.3mph. If the stage II 06s are stronger its possible that they can trap say 105mph. IF thats the case i can see a stage II 06 staying with a stock WS6, but not really with a modded one, but in the real world who knows, We are talking tenths of a second, 1 or 2mph its very very little difference and any mistake can make a huge difference in the outcome.
