Boatinbill: Not to be rude I greatly doubt that any Mustang even the Cobras and the few 500 made Cobras R's will ever beat a Corvette or ZO6 Corvette from the factory showroom.

I have a 99' Pontiac Ram Air Trans Am WS6 package with only 3648.2 miles on it I've taken it to Norwalk race way park in Norwalk OH. I heve only run 10 passes, 5 in Spring 5 in the Fall. My best ET. has been a 12.687 backed up by a 12.692 in the Spring and a 12.662 backed up by a 12.671 all untouched and off the showroom floor. BTW it is also an automatic with the 4l60 transmission. I will not touch the car due to warrenty and of the fact that the 99' model year was supposed to be the last yeay of production , GM only made 7,678 Trans Ams/Ram air WS6 Trans Ams and 30th Ann. Ram Air WS6 Trans Ams either hard tops, T-tops and Conv.

Not to rain on anybodies party I'd like to see the info from where ever. And see what you run down the strip yourself?? I've got my dial in slips

Since everybody's talking about power, did you see the new Dodge Ram SRT-1? it's a regular cab 1500 with a drivetrain straight outta' the Viper. That's 500HP!! They say it handles better than most sports cars, largely due to it's 24in wheels

Move over Ford Lightning!!!

Ok, OK my bust was not up to date on the 03'cobra Rustangs. That I did'nt know that it also had to take a Eaton blower to rack up those #'s and beat the F-bodied GM cars and the Vette ZO6 5.5 edition 420 HP and 425 TQ.

Just like my RATA WS6 the book numbers on 1/4 mile ET's are high Popular magines rated ET's around 13.25- to 13.55 for the F-bodied cars at 107-111 mph and 13. teens for te ZO6 at 114mph.

I know what my RATA WS6 is capable of doing I have the dail in slips and 1 speeding ticket with a 90 day liscense suspension to make my case.

I not trying to rain on anybodies party here just voicing my opinion.

1 question. Does anybody remember the GM answer to the SVT Ford lightning in 2000? The lightning had if I remember right had a 5.4L triton V-8 with a blower making 360hp that all I can remember on these trucks.

A: Chevy brought out the Silverado SS: Reg cab sport side,2wd lowered some 18" Billet Spec.rims big meats for tires ect. driveline was the 6.0 V-8 GM tuned heads, intake,Cam,Crank etc. the Engine made 452hp and 475 TQ at the Crank without a blower. They sold the 1st 200 immediately in the US then quit selling them here. Now you can only get them on the Mexican market, everything was smog legal GM just chose not to sell them here.
AHH I'm done for now

I kind of like what Ford did. For years Ford and GM have been adding 5-10hp with each new model year trying to stay even with each other and getting nowhere in the process. Finally Ford says “Screw it…we’ll just slap a blower on there and get it over with”.
