I just thought you seemed to have pretty good stock tire times, so it wasn't a huge stretch to the 11's.
My car is a manual though and launch traction is a HUGE problem.
Your mods are very similar to mine. What headers did you use?

So I just want to be clear on this, a stock LS3 TB will fit on a LSA with a stock upper pulley? Which way is it mounted? Do you need a spacer? Is the TB motor on the pulley side or inverted with the motor on the AC generator side?

Thank you in advance.

Yes, it is a direct swap bolt on with no mods, spacers, or wiring changes. It can be mounted either way. Most people choose to mount it with the TB motor to the driver's side simply because of esthetics. The TB motor bulge is quite ugly when it is mounted towards the passenger side. The stock bolts work too and it takes maybe 5 minutes to swap it. Just like aftermarket cold air intakes, I doubt it is worth much hp without a custom tune as the MAF scaling needs adjustment when any airflow changes are made. Otherwise, the A/F ratio will be way off.
