13 lbs 8.6 lower and 2.55 upper.

The upper is a LPE Prototype aluminum pulley I got from Andy. Super lightweight.

I need to spec my cam out and do not know exactly what to go with.

Will he sell me just the camshaft? My compression ratio is going to be lower so maybe not a good idea? What is the CR on the ZL1?

Lol - me too - on that run though halfway down the track my engine cut out, all the lights on the dash lit up and I crawled over the line at 85mph.

Turns out the key to a good 60' on stock tires is a car that is broken and not putting all the power to the ground at the start line!

That's funny... my 1.99 was on the only run I missed a gear (3rd)...
