Voiding your warranty just to (maybe) run with a stock 2013 gt500---priceless

Don't get me wrong, I'm very close to throwing a pulley on my v. Most guys go with a crank pulley, and a bigger heat exchanger. With a reputable shop as the tuner, you're easily well over $2k.

I believe torque managnent was killing us that night, when launching the car would take off and fall flat on it's face.

K&N cold air intake as cheap as 183.99 maybe less. on google
blower pully for LSA 99.95 from lingenfelter
iridium spark plugs 9.79 per x 8 78.32

EFI live 900 + dyno time.

just trying to get your prices a little more real.

also where are the times of the 2013 gt500? haven't seen any solid times yet. so claim is unfounded yet. so keep stirring the pot.

Do you think a ZL1 will run anywhere near 10.99 with that list of mods? I don't see wheels and tires on that list, so I think a car with those mods will be much closer to 12's than 10's.

At most, I think it will take a big/little combo--stock suspension, stock motor. We'll see. I have neither car at this time, but would consider parting with my cobra to get one or the other. Why would it be hard to believe, when a current gt500 has been proven to run bottom 11's with big/little tire combo, and has 100 hp less?

Nah I think its closer to 15's when my 88 year old grandma drives it down the track but I didnt see that in the list either

What does it matter really? At the end of the its each persons money they are throwing in the direction they want to.

smaller blower pulley 125.00
new belt 45.00
cold air 350
tune 500
hmm yes, and tires and wheels another thousand I'm guessing, ya if you round it all up it adds up, but 2000-2500 is still ok.

Warranty? who cares.

If you are worried about warranty-don't mod.

I really wish the manufacturers would allow people to turn down warranties and save money up front. That way the "well you went and voided your warranty" comments would have no wait.

I'll be interested to see how many zl1 owners do it that cheaply.

I've owned two factory-forced induction cars---rarely, do you get off that cheap. Let me know where you can get a good set of wheels and tires for $1k

Its easy just wait it out for someone to put them on sale. I got a set of Weld race stars with slicks and matching fronts for 700 bucks. Theres options out there. I have 3 FI fords myself and looking at all the data, the zl1 looks like it will be pretty easy to get into the tens cheap outside the cost of the car itself.

You won't find any Welds or any other light weight wheels for these cars at $700.

Let me know when you find the same deal for wheels/slicks, and ill be buying them for all of my cars. I don't see this car running 10's cheap. I've been on the caddy forums for well over a year with my cts-v, and no one has done it that cheap over there. Maybe the updated mr suspension, and 50lbs weight savings will make a huge difference?
