    A 389whp Camaro will run low 12s to high 11s with a good driver. So, mod accordingly.

    well, go stage 4, but race him on a cold dry night, and hope that he spinns on the cold pavement, hell start catching up but if you get a good jump and only race to like 100 or so (about a 1/4 mile) if your stage 4 you should hold him off......now if he gets traction that could be different, cuzz thats easily a low 12 high 11. on the street i wouldnt give it close to that though, those cars have serious traction problems stock, and remember a drag strip is usually prepped and made ideal for cars like that, the street isnt. dont even think about it while you're stock, you'll look dumb for even trying... and even stage 4 hell still probably kill you from a roll, those cars are beasts stock, and thats almost 100whp more than stock

    I raced a friends modded LT1, 3.73 rear end, full catless exhaust, chip.

    I'm stock and I put a car and a half on him up to 50mph from a dig, we were in a parking lot.

    He had no traction and spun his tires for a 170 feet, second time around he spun them for about 90 feet but same result.

    I raced him from a roll to, started at 40mph in second I held all the way until I shifted then he pulled a car on me up to 85mph.

    I ran a stock LS-1 camaro at the track once with my stage 4 with vf30. He ran a 13.6 to my 12.8, but trapped higher than I did. With 389whp you will need QUITE a bit over the standard stage 4 to keep up. From a roll especially.

    yeah... ^^ said.

    i have a friend who's got a stock SS with a damage rear suspension and I can barely beat him at the 1/4 mile track (look at my mods) - if it's a 380+ Whp.. you've got some serious moddding to do to keep up with the dood.. specially on a roll..

    goodluck!

    In a nut shell, nothing short of extensive hard work and money will allow you to keep up with him. The car is probably running very low 12's to high 11's on that setup. You are looking at needing a 2.5block, fpGreen turbo, and all the basic works. Even with that you are going to have trouble getting above 350whp reliably. from a roll, its a whole different "up-the-stakes" of modding, lol...

    so in other words, unless you have a lot of time and money, dont even bother.

    are you a good driiver? A really good driver w/green and other stage4 mods with a good c16 tune could pull off a high 11 pass.

    yeah, but thats a lot of: money, practice, time, and luck.

    from a dig though, its def. possible for him to put a little distance on the SS for a while with those mods

    any decent times are going to be had with a lot of money practice time and luck. I've seen enough 11 second cars run low 13's it's not even funny.

    TripleX stomped out 121 - 122 traps on his green /stock block so.

    Then again I could drive that same car and run it into the high 14's
