    '05 STi vs friends '01 Trans AM

    Location: DEAD highway from Amarillo TX to NM.
    Reason: Driving back from picking up my STi
    Cars: my '05 STi with a Catless TBE. Running on 91 octane
    His '01 Trans AM with Rocker Arms, Cams, Injectors, All sway bars running on some fat ass tires in the rear. He said pretty much everything thats in the LS6?? Im not a vette or trans am V8 guy, SO please dont flame me (im just going by what I remember him telling me.) Also Running on 91 octane.

    Races: 3 in a row from a dig. I let him honk, and after the third honk I get what felt like a 1.7 60' time launch on him. By the end of 1st I have about 2 1/2 cars on him, 4th gear comes up and he gains back about 1 car. By the time I hit 5th and stay on it for a couple of seconds he shuts down all 3 times, w/ me about 1 car 1/2.

    He declines a 4th race from a stop, and so we do 2 first gear roles and 1 2nd gear role.

    The 2 first gear roles, I launch the car (press in clutch and slip very fast) on the third honk by him going ~15mph. I gain about 1 car, and he stays on my bumper til a bout ~100 when I shift to 5th hes next to me and slowly creaps by.

    The last race from a 2nd gear role, im going about 25, 3 honks and I stay next to him til mid 3rd gear, the shift to 4th he starts to creap away from me, and I loose by about 1 car thru 5th ~110, more had we kept going.

    All in all, I can do a real good job of holding him back from 0-15 thru 100-115
    I was pleased with the outcome either way

    Roll, not role. There is a difference.
    My water heater has a blow off valve.

    To me, it would be waste of money to emulate an LS6 with LS1 when you could spend the same amount of money to get better heads/Cam and valve train to gain at least another 50 rwhp, but whatever floats their boat I guess.

    Good run by the way.
