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

On the 650 rwhp run the fuel pressure had dropped significantly by the end of the pull, the larger injectors were OK at this power, with no voltage boosting.

You want a $54k car or a $64k car? Enough said.

zl1 are selling for about 60k with gas guzzler tax and what nots, my SS was 28k Fastlane's turbo kit which is about 8k kicks you to 10.34 @ 138, we have some members rocking low 9s and barely touching 8s with a procharger, nitro and what nots. I dunno maybe i'm just over estimating how far your dollar will take you and expecting more from the ZL1.

thats only looking at one aspect of the car though. Yes as it has been said time and time again if you are looking to just drag race then maybe the zl1 isnt the best investment. Now how much money would it take to run 8's and then pull the time that the zl1 pulled at the 'ring? Could that procharged engine even survive one lap? Its all about what the end user wants. Right now the zl1 looks pretty close to the have my cake and eat to category.

Gram great runs.

We ran a 10.20 @ 137 in the G-Force CTS-V last week. Can you give more info on wheels and tires. Did you change the front brakes to fit the runners? Did you try a 17 in weld on the rear?

Has anyone tried something like the WOT box on the ctsv at all to use the 2 step and have the blower at boost on launch?

No Mike the wheels we used were CCW and the fronts will fit CTSV also, rears were 18". The point of this was to show that less than $ 3 k in engine mods, plus good tires would do this. More to come!

Great work guys, oh so close, but 11.0x is nothing to sneeze at.

Graham...good job on the car and great job keeping us in the loop like you do. I for one really appreciate the fuel pump feedback. I now know cam plus supercharger means dangerous territory on a ss car with a zl1 pump dropped in. Better off with lingenfelter's fuel pump upgrade.

I can tell by the way you post you proabably have a long history driving 8 second cars down the strip. I say go for it. then post back what you acatually spend to 10's. then 9's, then 8's.

we will then total the amount actaully spent and see if fantasy and reality actualy match up price wise.

Graham.
Graham, when tuning, was consideration given with regard to the hyper piston/powdered rod combination with respect to timing? In other words, how aggressive was the tune and what metric are you using to ensure some semblance of longevity with the wick turned up?

Is the plan to keep bumping closer to the limit with a teardown in the future?
