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)
