Only way to properly gauge your times would be to either do the speed traps or take it to a dyno.
....or to a local trap...

Re: which is quicker? 5.7 auto or 5.0 5-speed?

I'd say it depends on the driver, but the 5.7 in same type cars would win every time. And by same type cars I mean same model/year. The later fbodys made a hair more power, had a better efi setup. If you put a 91 5.0 formula against an 87 5.7 GTA, it would probably be a damn good race.

It would probably come down to driving skills and tires.

And that's because a GTA is a fatty compared to a formula for example and the 5.7's MAF setup is not the best in terms of power production as you mentioned.

The Formula has a better edge though on the GTA just because of the weight.

They think they are cool because more people have them than muscle cars, and they know it will be socially accepted as cool or badass. Not out of love for the car, just for the cool dumb ass teenage factor. Which I don't get because I get A HELL OF ALOT more looks and comments in my GTA than all of my import friends put together.And when the new models come out nobody gives a rats ass about the older jap cars. Not to mention my car stock whoops the ass of any of my friends. I still whoop the asses of new cars in my GTA. I have beaten a new G6 GXP, an SRT4 neon, and a couple newer jap cars. From a dig that TPI torque is just unstoppable. Going stoplight to stoplight TPI cars can hold their own just fine, its after that when they run out of breath when we have our problems.
was in the city,i heard a loud noise,i saw something moving away slow
ahhh honda rice car.

i remeber in 1989 icc int camaro club was in scranton Pennsylvania
