I'm sure the guy who reported the 12.2 is exactly what he ran at that track bone stock. The problem is that track runs faster than all others regardless of DA. Back in my LS1 days a guy did a...

I've always thought that the exhaust before the turbo's doesn't matter that much. Interesting.

The 12.2 time for the 5.0 is B.S. since it was done at the Cecil downhill track. I don't know where the SS ran a 12.5 but if that was done at Cecil it is also a BS time.
It's funny how fan boys of...

Because people are willing to do this is why dealers can get above MSRP. If everyone refused to pay above MSRP dealers wouldn't ask for it. It's those kind of buyers who have ruined it for everyone...

In production? IDK. My Kooks hang maybe a half inch below the frame. I am lowered 1" and have NEVER scraped the headers on anything. This car has the best ground clearance of any Pony car that I...

I think it might be safer now to FI your car vs doing a cam. It's probably double or triple the cost but I think a PD blower setup has become more reliable. That is so long as you stay below 8psi,...

I agree with this.
Of course the SS model should get the LT1 with 7 speed manual or 8 speed auto. Auto should get the same engine as the manual, not a truck engine like the 2010-2015 cars. Buyers...

Turbo cars don't see that big of a hit from DA changes but supercharged ones definitely don't run as good in bad DA. In any case I would love to see how many stock cars costing $60k or less can do...

You got the 3.91's right? Do you think you could post your best stock gear runs vs your post 3.91 gear runs? Both DA corrected. Thanks.

Do you guys remember how long it took for the Vararam CAI to come out? The 6th gen will probably be out before this intake manifold hits the market and has all the bugs worked out.

You can safely turn your LS3 into a 427-454 with a sleeved block from ERL. Without sleeving I would stick to the 4" crank stroke for 416-418ci.

No, the Scat pack is cloth seats for the sub 39k starting price. Still a steal though. The SS is about 2k cheaper with similar options in manual trim. I will admit that a full second difference in...
