This is definitely going to be a tough task. A bolt on V6 should run low-mid 13's and a bone stock 5.0 is going to run in the high 12's pretty easily. I ran a [email protected] in my 2011 GT bone stock. Now with some bolt ons and a sticky tire, my 2011 GT has blasted into the 11's pretty easily and traps 120 MPH in the 1/4 mile.

If you go with a set of Long tubes, Gears and a small Nitrous hit, you should be able to hang with a stock/minor bolt on 5.0! Keep up the great work with your build and feel free to hit me up if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future.
