    What engine mods do I need to blow a Camaro SS?

    I know I'm really close to beating an SS but I really want to annihilate this scum bag that I unfortunately know. I need to embarrass him because he told me he'll give me 10 car lengths and I know 10 car lengths is more than enough to blow him away. I have about $5k set aside for my Subi, so please any recommendations will be highly appreciated. Im gonna tear this guy a new a$$ hole...help me guys!

    I'd say sell your car and take the cash you get plus the 5K and put a downpayment on a mustang gt500.

    I'll try to be a touch more serious (just a little). Assuming you're doing this on a drag-strip... or some other form of sanctioned racing, and not through school zones. I don't know how to convert school-zone times into 1/4 mile or rally times.

    I'm not 100% familiar with the SSs (but my 3 year old son loves them), to be honest. I can give you some 1/4-mile times (or you could look them up yourself). I know with my build (see the build forum), I ran a 12.26 and 12.48 @ 22 psi (and a lot of 12.7s @ 20 psi) in the cold night air at NEMS on DRs - the vast majority of my time was lost in my 60' time. I've been drag racing for a while (bikes and sleds mostly), but I would expect you could run sub 13s with my mods if you were competent.

    From Nasioc, stage 2 TP cars are running 12.9s pretty consistently.

    To 'rip someone apart', that means at minimum a 1-second 1/4 mile win to me. YMMV.

    What's an SS run? From the forums I see a lot of 'high 12s' for the stock 2013 (no idea if this is true or not, it's from the Camaro forums). That means you won't 'destroy' him with my mods (which are JUST in your budget) - it'll be more of a drivers race to see if he can catch you. Therefore, you'll need motor and/or turbo work if you want to kill him. This means your budget isn't big enough as stated. E85 could be an option, but that requires fueling upgrades. Assuming I'm making 325/385, then you need to make 450/500 to beat him by a second?

    That should cost... hmmm ..... $20k? Or there abouts anyway.

    The issue is, of course, doing that dramatically shortens the life of your clutch and transmission, but you only need to beat him once, right? RIGHT?! If not, you'll need tranny work too...

    So my suggestion is to 1/4 mile race him... in January... during a blizzard... him stock tires you on snow tires... you should kill him.

    A fifth gen will not run high 12s in the quarter without some engine work and good tires.

    Why is a dumbass with a big-V8 Camaro SS saying he will destroy a freaking 4 cylinder car with 265 horses? I also bet I can beat up my neighbor's 10 year old kid, cuz I'm cool, ya know.

    I'm no expert in blowing things, but I imagine you can blow a Camaro for free.

    but seriously, e85, upgraded fuel system to go with it, DP, Dom 1.5 XTR, Wider sticky ass tires, Process West TMIC, EBCS, AccessPort or Opensource protune, and some other little stuff your tuner will probably recommend

    I was checking Chevy's site to see what they are doing with the Camaro these days out of curiosity, and I think it's kind of funny (and sad) that the ZL1, a supercharged 6.2 liter with 580 freaking horsepower, gets THE SAME MPG as our 4 cylinder WRX's....what. the. ****. Way to go, Subaru.

    It would help if you told us what kind of car you have, what mods it already has, and what kind of "race" is this going to be..
