I'm not saying it didn't happen but I am most certainly saying driver error, magical SS or something wrong with the car. Maybe you guys didn't take off with more than 5500 RPM and then didn't ring...

Seriously the right converter could drop 1/4 mile times by almost half second and be the difference between running low 11's and mid 10's. I would recommend to get a custom built triple disk...

It does suck that the new Z06 is slower than the Viper but I guess you get what you pay for in this situation. The Z06 is cheaper in any comparable configuration vs the Viper even after Dodge cut...

This car is built for LT headers. As long as you get a quality set full stainless steel and use factory gaskets you will have no regrets. It's not like the 4th gen F body or DOHC Ford engine where...

Anyone ever see a ZL1 running in the 13's or not exceeding 110mph at the drag strip? I think it might be the same problem with the LT4. It's probably heat soaking easily and getting really high IAT's...

I was wondering how they were going to handle the IAT issue with using a small supercharger and spinning it fast. This is why I always liked a 2.3 blower over a 1.9 and a 2.9 over a 2.3 for the GM...

You definitely get bigger gains from heads than a FAST intake. A FAST intake for the LS3 would be the very last thing I did and even then I wouldn't expect much.
