    my friends brother had to borrow his truck, so they swapped cars. my friend borrowing his brothers Z28.......... we raced on a 1/2 dead straight road by my school today. i had him up until 90mph, then he started pullin on me pretty quickly. as much as i hate complaining and making up excuses, my rear tires are almost as bald as britteney spears. but i get new ones this weekend!! hes got the Z28 for 2 weeks so another race will be coming soon. i dont expect to win of course. after all im stock 5spd (225hp) and he's stock Auto (275hp) but maybe if i get traction in first and second ill be able to keep a big enough head start.

    Thats cool. I have one for you. I was driving home from Bradenton, Florida to Iowa, I had raced my car all day in Florida, and had been on the road about 10hrs when I decided to stop in Tennessee for the night. I was looking for a hotel in some town in the mountains and there was some kid cruising a 93+Z28 around. Well he lined up with me and I smoked him so bad that he followed me to a Comfort Inn to BS and find out what I had under the hood....lol. Now, I also had my slicks/wheels/tools/and other racing crap in the trunk and backseat. My car never made me prouder than it did that night.

    Ditch that intake and cams and he won't be walking you at 90mph, even just going to the PI intake and cams will extend your usable rpm range enough that you will probably stay with him the entire time. I remember when i was stock and it would just fall flat on its face after 4000-4500 rpms.

    they also have a lot more CI than our cars do, bump a npi 4.6 up to a 351 and it could deal with a lt1 in my opinion.

    ford 5.8 < chevy 5.7

    it sucks but either way 4.6, 5.0, or 5.8 it takes a lot of modding to run as well as chevy engines to for the most part :nonono: :'(

    You guys are going to talk trash on lt1's? Before my 95 gt i had a 94 z28 camaro that was stock with the exception of flow masters. That thing would blow the doors off of my gt any day of the week and i got quite a bit of bolt on's on my gt. Do not under estimate it.
