What American V6's can beat V8's?

Just wondering how many American V6's are out there that can beat the everyday 3rd gen Camaro/Firebird V8's.

Grand National (3.8 Turbo)
Monte Carlo SS (3.8 Super)
Impala SS (3.8 Super)
Turbo Trans Am ( 3.8 Turbo)

Any other perhaps N/A ones?

Yeah stock for stock. Any induction system wether it be Turbo or Super or NA. I think the Grand Prix GTP will def take it.

I know someone who has a 305 TBI, and he tried to get away from me by flooring it, I pulled like a mad freight train on his ***, waved, and kept going. It was funny. His car also poured pure oil out of the pipes at WOT. That engine sucks tho. 170hp lol from a 5.0 Liter lol

Re: What American V6's can beat V8's?

would a 3.8 Camaro really outrun a 305 or 350 TPI?

What about NA Grand Prix's or Supercoupes?
