power needed to get in the mid 11s

So I'm running high 12s in my 14ss. Only thing done is exhaust cold air intake and mail order tune. What kinda power is needed to get this land tank into the mid to low 11s? The car is being SC with LS9 cam in February. Will it be enough?

When you say exhaust do you also mean you installed LTH? I am guessing your around 430whp right? A S/C (done right) should give you the ground power to get to mid 11's or better. However, two other mods are going to help you a lot: Tires and suspension. Wheel hop and spin will kill your times no matter how much power you have.

Curious why an LS9 cam? Not a bad cam but several companies offer custom grinds specific for FI and your going to need to upgrade the head internals and fuel system too depending on how far you go.

A few members have gotten almost to mid 11's with just bolt-ons and a nice cam package.

Should be well enough power to run low 11s or better. Will need some drag radials or slicks too.

Well LS9 cam is a GM part that's had some good R&D on it. Its also a drop in can and don't have to change springs push rods and so on. Plus its $85 at the dealership I deal with.

Yes I have long tubes but I doubt I'm near 430whp.

I spin a lot as you can tell from my 60ft. It wheel hops but I just ordered trailing arms and toe links for it. Hope that will help it.
