Holy cow, I didn't know the difference could be as much as 10% - 12%, that's good to know. To be safe, I'm going to have my car dynoed on a Dynojet immediately after my engine builder finishes his...

My Camaro's a 1LE, but I've done quite a bit. Engine mods, coilovers, wing and splitter, track alignment and 315/30-18 Hoosiers. My Camaro ran 3-1/2 seconds faster than my Viper at Buttonwillow...

Good to meet you at the track, ZFat. I was driving the 2013 Stryker Red Viper at Thunderhill that weekend with you. And before I bought my Viper, I had the same concerns about them being a handful at...

Hey Mark,

Things are moving forward on the motor, it's still early yet because the builder is trying to catch up on a backlog of work after moving to their new shop. I think it's gonna work out...

Oh, and I'm changing my guess for lap time to 1:36.6, which is solidly faster than Randy's C7 Corvette lap of 1:38.28! Very impressed with Z/28, it defies physics.

Yes they've fairly recently run the Lightning Laps (maybe two months ago). Not sure whey they haven't published the story yet, absolutely can't wait to see the results.

I agree, and it seems I would have felt hesitation if the pump wasn't keeping up. Or then again maybe it may not have been noticeable, if it were marginal. Good tip on the knock sensor settings.

Yes the Z/28 has it's appeal and would be a practical choice, but I would have modded it a bunch as well, so I'm glad I started with a $35K car. Funny, I had no idea I would mod my car this much.

I shouldn't have gotten greedy on HP, it had plenty before I added the heads and intake. And what a joke, they only made 18 RWHP.

Thanks for the feedback. Yes I'm doing a dry sump, seems wise. Even GM put one in the Z/28. Any ideas on a good brand and what specifically I need? They can be pricey.
