onebad 1LE MODS

Well just got my 1LE and now its time to start modding it.
My goals are 1 g in turns (done) 10 sec 1/4 mile -(might take some time)
and stop just as fast. and still maintain easy drive ability
my 1st mod was a drop in K/N filter and 2 mod is a one piece drive
shaft from drive shop -its 3.5 inch all aluminum piece
the stock drive looks weak but is surprising light and (i know the last pick has a tool in there)
was torqing it to specs

next mods to come

I am going to install headers and bought some used C5-ZO6 rims with mickey thompson tires to get some base line results from 1/4 mile results -the rims will be paint black to match my other rims

Why no stock runs for a true baseline?

I still want to see numbers from a production car in the hands of a consumer. Mod fever or not.

I agree with newb. True baseline is as it was picked up from the showroom floor

headers installed

Well just went to the shop and got the car tuned -mainly to get the check engine light off and found out the stock rev limiter is at 6700 RPM and that the tables are similar to the ZL1 . I will dyno the car when the shop get there new dyno installed in about 2 weeks and then i will have base line number before and after cam install.also 1/4 miles times when track reopens but for now just headers and drop in k/n filter the 1 st gear is worthless at full throttle-- car is very quick for such small things.

and more mods

installed some speakers and painted rims black---but had a problem
on a 1LE a 305/40/18 will not work with the stock front tires 285/35/20--all
the check engine light came on, so I had too sell the rims and tires. I bought 2008 C6 TWIN spokes with 305 /35/19 mickey thompson
are the exact same tire diameter as the front so no lights.

know by how much?

Yes, the one piece drive shaft you put in last month. Is there a particular reason you went with the 3.5 dia. instead of the 3" dia?
