    Can you explain the difference between a 1999 camaro and a 2000 camaro? If not, I'll assume you're just guessing.

    Some differences in exhaust and intake.

    The cars are slightly different.

    The 98 and 99 camaro/firebirds ran richer from the factory. They had larger injectors and a slightly different fuel table then 2000+. The 2000+ F-bodys also have better flowing manifolds and a slightly different cam spec.

    Ok, now that sounds like areal answer :) sorry to doubt you, but there's a lot of guys around here who just spew back information they've heard w/o actually knowing if it's true or not.

    Lancer Evolution GSR/RS
    WRX Sti & Spec C
    Nismo Skyline GTR (yeah, it's limited production but still production)

    I don't think an unmodded Silvia can managed under 5. Mid 5s yes.
    There's a slew of exotics are 0-60 under 5... Lambo, Ferrari, Pagani, Bugatti...

    I'm guessing there should be one AMG under 5.

    I can confirm those. To be honest, anything that can do 0 - 60 in under 5 seconds hurts. Seriously, make sure you are planted in your seat before taking off. Otherwise its like not having a 12 gauge shotgun planted firmly when fired. Then again the seats need a little give too. I now see why alcantara is used as seating material in racing seats. The perfect blent of grip and give.

    Does the Ford SVT Lightning count since it does 0-60 in 5 flat?

    Have you been gone from Canada that long?

    Your forgetting the long time undisputed champion of Canadian drag racing, the '95-'00 Pontiac Grand Am.

    I have 2000 SS and there isn't much of difference between 1999 and 2000, maybe 5 - 10 HP.

    I think some of the RX7's from the mid 90's were spec'd under 5 seconds... but I could be wrong.
