Mods for a good 1/4 mile?
 
So I have just started to go to the strip on Friday nights for test n tune, now Saturdays for grudge wars. I want to know what mods I should do to get my car running better. no forced induction. but maybe gears? nitrous? drag radials? what else?

E. All of the above

I've heard some people say that a 3.91 gear won't help anything.. what would it help? and what kind of drag radials do you suggest?

ROD_SS 09-07-2013 10:32 AM

What do you have so far?

headers,exhaust,tires and nitrous would be a good start

Supercharged SS 09-07-2013 10:40 AM

How much money are you willing to spend?

christianchevell 09-07-2013 11:07 AM

ss mod, zl1 mod, CAI, quantum capacitor with 9.7 gigawatt imploder.

Yes gears get it to the ground and make a real seat of the pants feeling as you go fast quicker and do you know your gear ratio? DO you have a automatic or a stick? These things matter, and then there are different things to be considered v-6 vs v-8 and if a new throttle body would help, and other various items and next thing you know you have thousands dumped into a v-6 and if that's what floats your boat.......

And of course money always matters..........

I want to do the same as you but without touching the motor. I'm going with some suspension work, slicks w/skinnies up front, and a tune. I hope to be in the mid 12s with those mods.

Same as who?

If you guys are looking to add some power and reduce those E.T.s with some bolt ons we can help. One of the best mods right off the bat is a set of long tube headers. They add real deal power even to the V6 cars. Sticky tires and long tubes are a great start.

Unfortunately the OP can't do headers. He's got the LFX so he's pretty limited in the bolt ons. High flow cats will probably provide him some gains, and the intake manifold setup RacnJasn is working on will probably get him some more torque down low. Other than that, he's going to have to tune it to see any real gains.

don't really have a spending limit... just what ever comes to mind. :)

Are there any Camaro out there running the 1/4 mile stock(with maybe a tune), gears, suspension mods and tires? I'm interested in knowing what their times are

Sticking with a v6 for a couple years, but I am going with a CAI intake for my next mod. my gears are 3.27. (I think). Throttle body in the near future!
my mods I plan are the CAI, Ported TB, Solo high Flo cats, Drag radials, and maybe dry nitrous in the future too. :)

Look at the fast lists. Tons of info there. I'm sure you'll find that combo somewhere.

Ah, didn't notice the year. It's a bummer the LLT headers never really took off so no one is in a rush to push out a set for the LFX. Solo makes a nice set of high flow cats for the LFX that will help the power output some but obviously not like a set of long tubes! Nitrous is the easiet power addder but I'm not sure if you're willing to toss it on. You can't touch the bang for the buck and it is safer then most think.

etmx183 09-07-2013 12:14 PM

My signature will give you the whole list for an LFX with an Automatic transmission to put you into the mid 12 second ETs. I went 12.541@108.19 on Friday night. Daily street driven car and I still get 27/28 MPG. I only run premium fuel also so my fuel trims are always ready for some action. If you want to go real fast and no budget limitation you need to talk to GretchenGotGrowl about the twin turbo setup.

awesome man, sounds good! :) thanks!

My recommendations for the strip:

lighter 18" rear rims with sticky tires is my top suggestion.

Past that I'd recommend an intake, throttle body, and tune. High flow cats if you want to spend the money.

Last but not least, get that suspension working better to keep you planted to the ground. Bushings, controls arms, sway bars.

That should make a nice difference over stock.

If you want to go really fast, you need to look at forced induction.

By the way, have you ran at the track yet? If so, what was your times?

what order? like do I need to do the bushings, control arms and sway bars all at the same time, or can I do them seperate? but I'm not looking for forced induction. but I have ran and my best run for last night was:

R/T: .8424
60FT: 2.2356
330FT: 6.4011
1/8 ET: 9.7368
1/8 MPH: 74.16
1/4 ET: 15.0513
1/4 MPH: 93.07

RacnJsn95 09-07-2013 03:49 PM

Op do you have an automatic or manual?
