Well the LS1 is mine, its an 04 gto. i figured id bring out both cars and run em just for fun. the cougar got the jump on all 3 runs and stays in front, til about the 8th mile. after that the gto just pulls harder than heck. and finishes at about 3 car lengths ahead.

But not bad, considering i only have ~$1800 invested in my XR7.

Cougar has a 95 blower w/ 5%od & mac cai. ls1 is bone stock.

two heavy weights fighting it out! That blower upgrade is one of the best mods earlier cars can do

You should post that vid you had of the marauder running the GTO on the old airstrip.

The LS engines sieres was a home run for GM. I wish we could get a set of head that flow that well.

Yep, two heavyweights indeed. I was suprised on the outcome, up until i started crunching the numbers in my head and figured that the XR7 is running a little more torque down low; but on the top end it just dies. With relativly the same weight, the higher HP up top took it.

I wana run them again and try and get it on a vid.
