A performance vehicle tuner based in Texas is stirring up some controversy, with claims that the now renowned Nissan GT-R supercar "wasn't running street tires at the 'Ring". On top of this, the turning firm, East Texas Muscle Cars, is going further by declaring that it will be developing a new street-legal turbocharged 2010 Chevrolet Camaro that will be able to beat the GT-R's Nurburgring time, and on street tires at that.The goal is a lofty one for East Texas Muscle Cars as the Nissan GT-R's current time around the 'Ring is a blistering 7:26.70 - quicker than the considerably more expensive Porsche Carrera GT supercar.

How does trying to beat an almost-stock GT-R with an very highly modified car mean anything?

It's the "street legal" part of it that makes a difference. That, and a cost comparison.

No surprise though, Chevy V8s have always been very "tuneable" for power.

Not much. It would be way more compelling if it were a factory effort, IMHO. I'd love to see a GM-built Camaro ZR1.
