It was always a fun rivalry, I had one friend with a factory "freak" 02 Camaro M6 car that would run 12's in stock trim. He was a demon on the shifter but man that thing was fast. I think that motor made it to just shy of 30k miles before it blew up!



Mine ran 12.6 @114 MPH on just a lid, Eaton Posi limited slip, Pro 5.0 shifter, SLP cat back exhaust system, and drag radials, (but also with a launch/60' BUTCHERING; road race type suspension, and BIG Strano front sway bar, and optional size, 17x9 and 275/40-17 front wheels/tires) and yes, still managed to make it to 235K miles. wink drive

That wasn't a factory freak, I had many friends with LS1 F-bodies back then that ran in the 12s in stock trim. Mine ran a 13.08 at 106mph in stock trim and with just a few free modifications, drag radials and 4.10 gears it ran 12.6s at 111 mph.

I didn't know anyone that blew up their LS1 at low mileage (and the higher mileage ones that blew up were always nitrous related)

Yeah 12.90s in stock trim wasn't all that freakish, fairly common if you actually knew how to drive the thing and didn't John Force it in the waterbox. Many years ago, my brother had bought a 2001 Trans Am with a 6-speed and something like 50k miles and bone stock, first pass I cranked off a [email protected] with a 1.77 60' on whatever tire it came with (non-drag radial). My own 09 G8GT ran a [email protected] with only a Superchips handheld canned tune; it ran high [email protected] fully stock (1.89 60's were fairly normal).

His current 00 Camaro SS has a 404-cube LS3 headed motor we built and runs [email protected] on motor, and still has the full factory interior (with A/C!) and 8-point cage. It's got a Turbo 400 with a transbrake and a Moser 9" under it, but other than that the rest of the car is stock. Popping the hood you can't really see anything to tip you off other than the headers.
