The 2007 SS is still a dang good car. Stock vs stock, it will outperform the Tri-9 SS. Despite the Wrong Wheel Drive, it makes more power and weighs less. It is more aerodynamic and is capable of over 150mph. 0-60 in under 6 seconds and it runs low 14s bone stock.
It is missing the attitude of the older cars though cwm1
when will gm get the picture, they finally stepped it up to a v8, but a v8 front wheel drive wtf.....i saw on tv that they are making an ls powered rear drive caprice but it's for law enforcement only, wtf is that, they gonna have to step it up
There was one newer Impala's in the Indipala SS club and it ran 11's so they can be fast. The guy that owned it worked as a mechanic at the GM dealership I use. It's the only one I ever saw that went fast and still was a real car. He would be a good person to talk to about what worked and what didn't.
