    yea, with headers that is about right...I have an ls6 cam sitting in my room, and with that, some hooker headers, and an intake manifold, I should be at about 385rwhp with no compromise in daily driveablity. The ls1 is an awesome motor. If you're in the market for a FAST car, you can't go wrong with a camaro...they may have other shortcomings but overall, I'm very happy with mine. I've invested $500 in mods and I'm at 330rwhp, IMO that's damn good.

    all I have is: Whisper Lid, Cutout, Ported stock throttle body, and an asp pulley. Thats about $600 in bolt ons, and I've barely begun the possiblities. The only suspension mod I have is subframe connectors. The car handles fairly well...nothing impressive but I can throw it into a curve at 85 or so and I'm not fearing for my life.

    There are many naturally aspirated vehicles with the 3.8 in the 14's on that list. I don't know the extent of their mods, however.

    If the Firebird you are racing is not a Formula or TA, find out the year. 96 and later is the 3.8, I believe. 95 and earlier appears to be the 3.4. You should win handily if it's the 3.4. If it's a 3.8 with a few boltons, I'd expect it to be a good race against a stock 4eat WRX.

    Win or lose, have fun, and do it at the track, please.

    Bah, there's only one supercharged V6 on there that's running under a 14 second 1/4 mile. The rest are running nitrous and a lot have drag radials. If this guy has none of the above, just kick his ass already. Most 3.8Ls are teh weakness.

    I dont know the V6 engines in the camaro/firebird

    But i do know this i was at Atco one night and there was this 98-02 camaro V6 with bolt ons and he was running 15.1 i dont know if he ever got into the 14s. so i am guessing a stock V6 you would kill specially if you get a good launch.

    Btw a S/C V6 should hit 13s
