Just kidding. It is an interesting question, that would put you backnon par with a 1LS and the LTs. Not my call though.

Yes, that would potentially put me on the same playing field... Although I'll never get to experience what Sport Mode feels like... I really wonder if it makes a difference in the 1/4 times?

Stock, probably not. With a tune yes, but you could just tune drive mode the same way.

I can tell you I have run in both D and Sport Mode. It makes a difference. Probably a tenth or so.

I tested at the 1/4mile track a couple months back and Sport mode was 3 tenths faster then Manual mode consistantly, so i would have to think it would be the same or maybe even faster then D mode.

Few questions...are the people running 13's or better running full trim or are they taking the spare, seats, etc. out of the car? Also, are those times posted true track times or are they from a programmer or DA corrected track times. Reason i ask, i have a lot of bolt ons and without the nitrous with full trim including spare tire and stuff in the trunk it ran 14.2. It was hot and humid and car was always running hot(205-212 range). Will try again in the cooler weather and try it with the Nitrous as well.

The only thing I did take out was the spare because it's easy to get out. Left everything else. True track time, I think the slip is posted above, or on the previous page.

The weather is killing everyone's times right now... Could be your elevation as well? Didn't look to see where you are.

What's killing me? A 2.92 gear ratio, and not having sport mode.

I've read that the 2013's are currently untunable?

If you have an LFX you should be able to get a tune. The LLTs had problems I know.

I have a 2012 and I think the 2013 has the same ECU; at least I haven't heard otherwise. We are tuning almost everything we want on mine.

It has been my experience that S is indeed faster than D. From what I can tell the real benefit on the strip is that S holds on to 3rd gear longer whereas D would try to shift into 4th right before the trap. No bueno.

I'm still untuned so perhaps the difference would be even more noticeable afterwards, assuming I leave D alone and the tune is on S or something like that.

I don't see why S would be faster at a drag race than D. To my knowledge S just holds a gear longer, less shifting involved. However if you are going from a dig at WOT then it really wouldn't matter.

It has higher shift points and lessens or removes the rev limiter I believe

I thought I read quicker, firmer shifts also? This 2ls has spongy feeling shifts that seem to take FOR - EV - ER.

2012 has the E93, while 2013 has the E93A, which it looks like both HP Tuners, EFI live both do not currently have support for? Can't say as for Trifecta... I wonder if Rhino79 has any experience with this?

Did not know that. Why the FXXX does GM keep doing this. I'll see Rhino next week and ask him if he's tried either on a 2013.

Went out last night, mods include a ported LFX intake, and a 1/2" intake spacer both done by myself.

Fastest time a 14.605 @ 95.15, highest mph for the night 95.56

Got a long way to go to make the bolt on fast list...
