WOW, cant believe someone would think a Cavalier would beat just about any S10 with a 4.3. I'll put my money on the SS.

it would be close. i have a 93 Z24 5speed, and its been awhile since i drove it cause its all apart and stuff, but i think it felt alittle faster than my s10 which is a 2000 4.3 5speed. the 4.3 has a good bit more hp and tq over the 3.1, but the truck is also a little heavier.

:stupid:

Cavaliers are slow as hell. Z24s are quicker but still no big deal. They didn't even make them back in 93 did they?

it will be close. Really depends on the driver. i have a 92 cavi 3.1 rs and ive run a few 4.3's. Sometimes i win sometimes its about dead even sometimes i lose. Is cpi the older 4.3 with the 160hp? If so you are most likely going to lose. IM talking about new vortec 4.3's that i ran.

do you know what you run? a 3.1l 5 speed is capable of hitting low 16's high 15's stock.

2 of my best friends have a 92 Z24 with a 3.1 and a 2001 S-10 with a 4.3. They are both autos and are damn even in almost every race, until the S hits the governor at 98. All I have to say is drive good and good luck, then let us know.

my x g/f had a 98ish z24..it was fairly quick..we raced several times....but because of the off the line speed and torque that 4.3 s10's have i had too much of a jump on her before her car could even try to get up to speed..the race was over before it started basically.
