A Typhoon SUV vs. a Camaro packing a 'Vette powerplant. Easy win, right?
This week's drag race features a fight between a Typhoon SUV and a LS1 Camaro. For those of you unfamiliar with the GMC Typhoon is the high-performance version of the GMC Jimmy SUV. At stock, the Typhoon could jump form 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds thanks to a Mitsubishi TD06 turbocharger and Garrett Water/Air intercooler attached to a 4.3-liter V6 engine. We suspect that this Typhoon, however, is far from stock just like the LS1 Camaro.
The fourth generation Chevy Camaro LS1 was available with either a V6 or V8 motor and as a coupe or convertible. The one seen here is the convertible (obviously) and the driver opted for the more powerful V8. The V8 was available on the Corvette LS1 so we assume that he is running the classic 'Vette's motor. Who ya got: The Typhoon SUV or the classic muscle car?
