Default My R/T got smoked!

So I was sitting at a stop light and an LS1 Z28 pulled up, Light turned green we both floored it and he basically just walked away. I was pretty much let down, I was hoping to at the very least hang on untill about 50 MPH but this Z28 was smoking fast! Anyway I want to swap out my muffler, I know this isnt going to give me any performance gain but it will sure sound badass. Any suggestions? I'm leaning towards Flowmasters cause that's what I run on my stangs. I want a mild sound while cruising and idle but a super aggressive WOT. Is that possible? Also what size muffler, I want to order tonight on Ebay. Thanks!

Maybe he had some work himself? But really, you can't compare the 2....the Camaro out of the box is what? a 13 sec car?

Yup. High 13's depending on the weather and a few other things.

I had a WS6 Trans Am with just a flowmaster and K&N, turning low 13's on street tires.
You are comparing 325 hp and about 3800 lbs stock in the camaro to your 5000 lb truck. Doesnt matter how fast your truck feels, the camaro is made to do that. I would have loved to seen your effort though. Especially if the other guy had missed a shift or stalled on takeoff! It doesnt take much to make a camaro fast though. Better luck next time bro.

Well isnt the R/T capable of running very high 13's? I wasn't expecting to win but just hang in there better. I know my truck isn't super fast and can beat any car, I have a C5 Zo6 for that!
