This past weekend some friends and I went on a drive through the hills of Napa, Lake Berryesa and Calistoga. The EVO performed like I expected it and I was very impressed with the car. It was the first time that I had pushed it that hard. In the crew were:

1G DSM
3 EVO's
WRX
C5 Vette
350z Convert

Nice...what was the best performing car out there, I would assume the Evo's since the C5 isn't a z06 or is it

The C5 was LS1 powered and very impressive. One of the EVO's has a turbo back, SAFC and intake and he kept up with the C5. Once we hit a straight though......the C5 was gone!

sweet, ya C5's are really nice cars, thats why I was considering one...I could pick one up cheaper than an Evo...but It wouldn't be a Z06 (LS1) just a regular C5 (LS6) and they also don't handle anywhere like the Z06.

so ya it sounds like the guy did have a Z06...sweet to hear the Evo keeps up with it..but I would assume it could with a little more power.

You got those backwards, the LS1 (350 HP)is in the normal C5 and the LS6 (405 HP) is in the Z06. Trust me, a stock EVO will get handed it's ass by a stock LS1 C5.... damn near 80 HP more than us with about the same weight.

LT1 was old engine, then they went to the LS1 one year after the 'Vett got it.

ok...and the WS6 is the high hp racing v8 better than the LS1 right...the LS1 would be in the SS's right with 350hp what is in z28's? and in the fast WS6 trans-am...that must be better than the LS1, so any idea how much hp that has...is it more compared to the LS6 then?

hmm connection maybe S6 has to do with the heads or block size?

<sigh>

The WS6 package is an appearance and (slight) performace package for the Pontiac with either the LT1 OR LS1 depending on the year. The SS package is the same damn thing for the Chevy.
