Just looking at the DA and a decent track at sea level and you would be right around 10.8 or better. Add in pulling a 1.5 60 10.7ish and drop the IAT2 down and you are adding even more hp to the equation. That looks pretty good to me.

Im sure the tune is under lock down but do you feel you guys are being aggressive with the timing or just running the fuel to be safe?

thanks for answering my questions, unfortunately I have to wait till my13 before I can start to look at all the data on my own.
Yes 160 iat 2 is excessive, the intercooler on the ZL-1 has less fin density than a CTSV, but better routing of thecooling medium and increased pump flow help it out, as you rightly say there are several easy fixes, lets see what the coming weeks bring.

Though that magnetic ride is quite nice and maybe the aerodynamics aren't BS, though is it really worth 30k to have the zl1 as a starting point to mod rather than the SS.
High 8's?

Really?

Does your "Strong MAF" mod help you with that?

Please post more. You are very entertaining.

Most impressive thing imo is the trap speed. With a killer 60 foot that should be close to mid 10's.

30k difference??? I must be looking in all the wrong places...I don't think I've ever seen a new SS MSRP for $25,000.

Thats what I thought. Thanks for the info. Can tell theres alot left in the car before the blower has to be pulled off. Makes me nervous that the wifes car could be faster than my 03 cobra with minimal mods. If all for fun anyways

Throwing 30k in a SS will not get you in the 9's for sure not in the 8's
