confused VT 5.0 vs VT 3.8 Supercharged

Ok this is the same thread i posted on LS1.com just wondering this has got me puzzled over the years. I've heard that the Supercharged 3.8L V6 is actually heaps quicker that the 5.0L V8 making 179kw.
Is this true?????

Dunno about it being quicker but I know it's underrated. You'd think it would be but I'm not too sure myself mate..

If you look closely the smoke is fake and is actually from one of those smoke machines

According to Wheels mag a VT V6 S/C ran 15.4 and a VT 5.0L ran 15.8
