    69 Chevelle (me) vs STi,Evo,G35

    So I showed up at "the spot" last night with Chevelle insted of the Evo and everyone was like After I spent 30 min showing it off and giving rides and letting only my closest friend drive it, I wanted to test it. My best run was a 12.1@114mph, not bad for a 36 yeard old 3300lb car. We figured that a S/C would get this thing down into low to mid 11s, the 1970 S/C Yenko will run high 11s stock and that was with the 427ci that puts out 7000 in displacement. The Chevelle with the 454ci 7.4L puts out 7400 in displacement Dont even ask about gas mileage

    On to the races: My friends STi was the fastest there, with some mods he runs mid 12s. It was a pretty good run.

    From a dig: He didnt get quite as good a launch as he should have but still got the jump on me, by around 60mph we were dead even and from there, I started to pull on him and ended up winning by about 2 cars.

    From a roll: We went from 20mph-80mph and I won by 2 cars, and it just got uglier from there. From 40mph-100mph I won by maybe 4 cars, we didnt bother with anything more.

    I beat the Evo by about 4 cars and murdered the G35 by at least 5 lengths. My friend who is selling me the Chevelle is looking for a S/C, so it should only be another month or so before I get one

    All 3 are different terms.

    S/C=Super Charger
    CI=Cubic Inches of the engine
    CC=Refers to desplacement

    454 Cubic Inch engine
    7400CC in displacement

    Technically CI and CC are the same, one is just SI and the other is european

    Quick math lesson:

    454ci*2.54^3=7440 I'm sure either the 454ci or 7.4L is rounded.

    ci = cubic inches

    cc = cubic centimeters

    l = liters

    350 ci = 5700 cc = 5.7 l

    so what is the point?

    O.K.
    So we are now all on the same page in regards to displacement. Now, back to the post.
    It is tough to outrun cubic inches on the big end. Them dad gummed things will get you every time. And as for Chevelles, I love the 69's. That was a great year. Unfortunately, my family is stuck with 71's. They were there and they were cheap. But either of my brothers would trade the 71's for a 69 in a heart beat.
    Any pictures of this car around? And how do you know the horsepower ratings? Where were they dyno'd?
    For the fellow Chevelle man, here are a few pics of the "Chimps", as we call them, around our shop.

    Well, it looks just like the blue one there, same color and window tint but different rims. It looks exactly like the one in the pic of the 1969 in the link below. HP ratings and performance times can be easily found on Muscle Car sites, I don't exactly know how they tested them back then but they are very accurate. Here is a link to the Chevelles Chevelle
