Tonight i got to line up next to a stock auto WS6. I saw him on the highway, no one was around us and i got up next to him and revved it. He reved back and rolled his window down and yell "20 roll". we slowed down to 20 and we both punched it. I had him to 140 and i slowed down, had him by about a car length. He wanted to do it again at a 50 roll and i had him again, passed him at about 130 very slowly but def. pulled.

My mods are:
Intake
BOV
Sti injectors
Walbro fuel pump
VF34 turbo
Cat-back Straight pipe
Perrin Up-pipe
AccessPORT
(i know, i need a downpipe and to paint my sideskirts)

I didnt know that a stage 4 wrx could beat a ws6 on the freeway, especially without a downpipe. Good to know. I cant wait to match up aginst one.

Just hope its an automatic and doesn't have much done to it. Other wise you will be in trouble.

seems with LS1's you never know what you're gonna get... You either get torn a new hole, or get decimated to oblivion... Rarely, you come across those that you can rip a new one....:D

Nice run. I take it that was a LT1 T/A. Had it been a LS1 I am sure he would have eaten you alive from a roll.
It was a WS6. the WS6 is an LS1. Most of the time an LS1 would walk on a basic stageIV from a roll, but the LS1 automatics seem to have problems with downshifting..... the trans often downshifts badly and you dont get the power you need at the time you need it..... 2 of my buddies have this problem with their Ls1's. z28 and t/a

MY buddy has an auto LS1, just ran him tonight for the 3rd time, on my Stage 4 + fmic (vf22) on a off the shelf Turbo XS stage 4 (vf34+tmic) map and just a hair over 14psi I beat him from a roll completely untuned (by about a half of a car), his mods: intake, exhaust, converter and shift kit....I think its just gearing that slows the autos down as we went from all types of rolls and there didn't seem to be too big of a problem downshifting (especially when you do a 15 mph roll).

Definately an auto.

Manual ls1's are no joke. I have raced many and they always put up a good fight. They never win but always are right there. Depending on their mods. Vf series turbos cannot beat an ls1 w/ a good driver and a manual tranny...Not up to speeds of 120mph...

Unless it is a WS6 that is pre-1998. Then it is an LT1. The WS6 "Ram Air" option was available on 1996 and 1997 Trans Ams and Formulae (LT1 coupes in 1996 and 1997 and LT1 convertibles in 1997).

was it an actual ws-6 though? I wasnt aware the Lt1 ram air versions had the upgraded suspension also. (or was that just on the new ws-6's where the suspension was introduced?)

btw: I saw you on TV zoo! well, atleast I thought it was you. It was MTV room raiders and this dude looked exactly like you. it was uncanny. but then I saw that he was from Miami. So it couldnt have been you

It was the WS6 option code that you checked, and I know that you definitely got the hood and the 17" rims. I am not entirely sure about the rest of the suspension modifications, though.

I would have liked to have seen that episode on TV. I don't have a TV, though, much less cable, so I guess I'll have to do without. My pictures are out of date, as well. My hair's shorter now, and spiked up. I think I am going to shave my head completely and grow it back blond. This is all relevant to the topic, of course.

The difference between the two is pretty noticeable from the front end. Just check out a picture of each (LT1 vs LS1 WS6s) and let us know. If it had been a stock WS6 LT1 you should have killed it. My stage 4 WRX would absolutely kill stockish LT1's.

Moving on to LS1's
My stage 4 (12.7 @ 108 mph) beat every stock LS1 it raced. Thats from a roll or a stop. I will admit I never raced one past 130mph, but up to 130mph, I came out on top. I usually pulled on them up to 100mph or so and then we stayed basically dead even from there. So if the race was close I would assume it was an LS1.

Well, not exactly the same situation, but I ate a WS6 alive this week...had some stuff I wanted to get home quickly so took my favorite short-cut, which is REALLY tight, REALLY curvy road. On the straight leading in to the curves, he came flying up on me and when I was long since out of the curves and turning off the road, I saw the tiny little speck coming up behind me fast... :D Fun times.
