    I was gettin on the highway tonight and soon as i got on i spotted a trans am. I was in the mood to race so i quickly got up beside him. It was a trans am, im not sure what year it was because it was to dark. It looked like it was a 98-99 ls1. I give him a rev and he revs back. I honked the horn 3 times and on the 3rd honk we both take off. We took off at 70mph. We were dead even until i shifted into 4th gear, thats when he started to pull on me, by 110mph he had about a car on me, i shut down at 130mph and i was behind about 2 cars or so. We raced twice and both times had about the same outcome. We both happen to get off at the same exit. He pulls beside me and gives me a thumbs up and goes on his way. Now it was probably an automatic stock ls1 or it could have been a modded lt1 im not sure but i am almost sure it was a 98-99 though.

    nice job :cool: Those LS1s are fast...I can creep and hold a lead up to 130...but above that they start to creep back and pull even by 140mph. :( Damn LS1 :p

    No way a stockish 4.6 SOHC hung with an LS1 with a highway speeds punch.

    But being a 98-99 as you say maybe it had some bent pushrods. The stockers suck if its been beat on.

    ya i thought it would have definitely pulled hard on me, definitely on the highway. I mean it looked like a 98-99 and it had to be an automatic if itwas but still i dunno.

    Tell me the difference between a 98-99 LS1 T/A and an 00-02.

    It was an LTslow or a v6.

    Are you kidding me? it wasnt a v6. It said trans am on the side of the car and had the ws6 on the bottom corner of the car. Im not talking about the difference between a 98-99 and a 00-02 ls1. It might have been a 97 lt1 then but if it was it was probably modded. Ive pulled my friends stock 96 lt1 from a roll a million times.

    That is your friends 10 year old LT1. But one in decent shape should still get infront of you and stay there.

    Your still stock and less hp/tq. But good driving would even it up with an LT1. The LT1 doesn't have to be modded necessarily.

    Until you get cams your GT is stock. I personally don't think you've "walked" or "pulled" any LT1 with a stock 2v. Beat yes. But not by much.

    yea I didn't want to rain on this dude's parade but I've never been beat by a 2V Mustang GT and they never put up nearly as close of a fight as the LS1's do with me. The GT's usually do the same on me as I do to the 350Z's and S2000s and that's a steady, constant pull the entire time. :cool:

    Without some seroius work a 2V GT is not keeping up with a stock LS1.

    lt1s run the same 1/4 mile time as a 99-04 gt so it is a drivers race. my friends car is a 96 and has a lot of miles. thats probably why i always beat him. I know my mods didnt add to much power to the car but just because i dont have cams doesnt mean its stock. Also an lt1 trans am/camaro weighs more than my car.

    Your messing up because now I know you read magazines and you went and compared the cars based off the specs you've read.

    Nice story. Now I don't believe you. :lol:

    Eh I believe it happened, because anything can happen when your on the street and the outcome can always change.

    Plus, LS1s are slow! :lol:

    *My GT has outran an ls1.

    your talkin like l1s are the fastest thing on the street and nothing can touch it. They can run anywhere from high 13s to low 14s depending on drivers. I dont read car magazines. Therefore it is a drivers race between them and 99-04 gts. Its not that hard to accept that.

    I came on here to share my story with u guys to try and get an understanding of what happened. If you want to make comments saying you dont believe me then dont bother posting.
