I have a friend at work with a Z-28 that is wondering what his top speed is. I don't know what year his car is but it has the LS1 and is an automatic.

I'd say maybe around 130, my friends 96 Z hits the wall around there i don't think the new ones do much better

http://www.f-body.org/gears/ This might help. 130 sounds about right bone stock.

In War Stories an LS1 tops out at around 85mph. :lol:

it may be faster if you have a mullet...mullets are to camaros as fart cans are to hondas...both give you big gains:thumb:

I've heard they've got the gearing for 170-180. I just don't know what the aerodynamic limits are and how much power they'd need to get there.

Wait for LS2 powered or 00blackSS to help you with this.

:stupid:

All I remember is the vette(including C5 ZO6) were drag limited to 172-175 and they actually did it 5th gear not 6th. The vette is slippier than the F-body so it should lose some mph.

A bone stock car I think is speed limited to 158.

Also they are fairly areodynamic so if hes modded and removed the limiter you would have a hard time beeting him in a high speed run.
