    Buddy has a Camaro Z28 with the bolt ons...(full exhaust/intake/some other chit)

    Ran a 12.8 in it at the track....

    We were on the highway going about 55...I was in 3rd gear....


    I looked at him and told him to take the move...

    He hit it... and I did as well...... I get up to about 5000 rpms and I shift to 4th...ride out 4th till about 5000 rpms again......


    I was probably 3 + cars ahead? Not too sure. I was more focused on the road than his car.. but I was a pretty good ways up. O0


    Atleast it's more respectable than a stock hemi charger. :hammer:

    Should be... I got 26/11.5/17 ET Streets (not the radial ones) and like I said above it's intercooled... with a built motor.

    Honestly, with this shitty gas.. I'm hoping for 11.8s.


    When I get to the states... get a retune on higher boost.
     
  7. lol... you could eat up S197 GTs, terminators, and LS1s

    Well I did play with my friends 03 Cobra... from the same roll as the Z28.... I didnt pull him as bad as the Z28... (in his defense he has just an intake/exhaust set up for now)


    We didn't really honk it off and go... kinda just went with the flow...
     
  9. well i was talking about 1/4 mile track racing...

    Yea, I'm going to try and stay away from the highway racing..
    Car has 4.10 gears and is pretty much ready for a quarter mile racing.

    not the best on the highway but can hold its own.
     
  11. I really fuckin like your car man... damn...

    If it goes missing it was probably me...

    lol

    Those 4 valves are so nice when it comes to modding them and the power you get.

    Good kill. Must have been a stock LS1 or a non driver. Bolt on LS1's run anywhere from low 12's to high11's and the FI ones can be nasty.

    It is a LS1... it's an auto but it's built auto I am pretty sure.

    And with intake/header/exhaust set up...
     
  17. not stock they won't

    My buddies TA with 4.10s, eagle F1s and some bolt ons will run low 12s...

    a stock geared LS1 ain't gonna run 11s stock... lol

    Ok, your 1 friend shouldn't be the basis of your view. Stock LS1's have hit 12's as Evan Smith the editor for Muscle Mustangs and fast fords has driven 2 LS1's into the 12's bone stock.

    I know a few that have ran 11's with just bolt ons. I never said they will run 11's stock. Infact I know of atleast 25 that have ran 11's with bolt ons.


    **Edit**
    Here are the top 50 quickest stock internal bolt on LS1's with some running stock gears

    i started to counter point Greg, but he said " a stock geared LS1 ain't gonna run 11s stock... lol" so does he mean a Stock Ls1 ?? Or a Ls1 with the stock rear end but with other bolt on parts :dunno: :dunno:

    Anyway I am aware of them running 12's right off the show room floor, and with a few extra hp I can see them hitting 11's with the STOCK REAR END GEAR :boink:

    The A4's are less prone to the shock of the drivetrain verse a M6 and some have gone 11's with a stock 10 bolt. I also have a friend who went 11.9's with a 4.10 geared 6 speed 10 bolt too.
