G8 GT vs Camaro SS (killed)

Met up with a friend that has 2012 Camaro SS L99 A6; he just installed some TSP 1 7/8" LTs and mufflers delete with a tune. He dynoed at 369rwhp.

Made several runs from 45-120; got the last one on video. Same outcome every time.

This is my first Pat G tune, as in, no tweaks or revisions, just the first tune he sent me to datalog info on. I suspect with some tweaking i can keep the pull from the camaro down.

Camaro has a touch more engine and rear gear and it showed. Throw a Camaro diff in and tweak the tune some more.

I think u would be better from the hole. Most of the time camaros get some serious wheel hop from a stand still. Atleast mine does.

Mine used to not at first but it did once or twice not too long ago and now it does it everytime. Once it starts its over, it will do it until you swap suspension parts. Once the bushings get jarred and gets a touch of movement in them they are done for.

Yeah, contemplating a 100 shot next. Haha

But seriously, my original mindset was get intake/full exhaust/tune and I'd be set with performance. Thought it would be enough to take most and hang with most on the street. :-/

Want to start working on suspension next (bushings mostly) and then some new brake pads (maybe new rotors.)

Ha ha...........wrong mind set to have. There are alot of cars out there with a lot of money put in them. Hell, when I went to the Livernois track day in October there were 3 G8s there. Mine was the slowest one (by ALOT) and Ive got much more than exhaust/CAI and tune.

In all seriousness.....Im just messing with ya, but its true.

Mine is a DD as were the two others I mentioned that could blow my doors off. I have a mild cam and stock stall.

Check. Put some Eibach springs on her and eliminate the hop for cheap. I never hop.

OP, you need more power! My car is a DD, and aside from scary MPG the G8 is great. 6.2 cam'd, stalled, full exhaust and intake and I put over 5000 miles on her this month. They're pretty reliable when they are an 11-second car, but faster than that I am not sure.

Yeah, considering some juice, a cam and maybe some gears. But that's after i do some upgrades to the suspension and brakes.
