2000 Trans Am WS6 auto 1/4 mile?

How fast is a 2000 WS6 automatic in the 1/4?

I found specs on the 6-speed

6-speed

0-60. . . . . 5.2 sec
1/4 mile. . . 13.5 sec

Auto

0-60. . . . . 6.0 sec
1/4 mile. . . ???

I'm guessing that the taller gears in the 4-speed auto will hamper acceleration.

Any info?

should go mid-low 13s depending on altitude and temp. ive seen stock ones with just a catback go low 13's. and the only difference in the trans am and ws-6 was just an appearance package and suspension. the ws-6 will be a few tenths slower since its heavier than a normal trans am. fiberglass hood, 17 inch wheels etc.

WS6 is about 320-325 HP 335-340 TQ

Trans AM is about 305 HP 320 TQ

So the WS6 package is not just appearance.

The question is what is the approximate 1/4 mile time for a WS6 with an automatic?
It's .8 sec slower 0-60 so I doubt it's running faster than high 13's, low 14's stock.

thats what the ws-6 was rated at from the factory. the engines are exactly the same. the only reason they were rated higher was because of the ram air. they are in fact the same car and didnt dyno any differently from car to car.

SLP built all the SS camaro's. they had the SLP exhaust and stuff. the ws-6 did have a bigger air box due to the ram air hood. thats the only difference.

So your tellin me that since they're since they have the same engine and dyno the same that if you put a TA against a WS6 they'll run the same?

I don't think so.
