I would have to agree with Darin on this one. In spite of the overall
cars, the 5.0 and Z28 are both, I hate to say it..., superior in terms
of horsepower and torque vs. a 5k with a 2.2. Even if the Z28 and 5.0
were equiped with auto trannys the 5k 2.2 wouldn't stand a chance off
the line if the individual driving the 5.0 or Z28 really wanted to drag...
