Minor bolt-ons, 601 RWHP

With the next phase of testing, we have these results to share. Our ZL1 just made 601 RWHP with the KDi ported blower, NW102 TB, New Era intake and 2.5" supercharger pulley and KDi heat exchanger on 93 octane.
We plan to put the DR's on, retune on better fuel and makes a few passes within a week.
Once those numbers are logged we will be installing ported stock heads, AR headers, TS29 cam and lower pulley kit. Based on how this project is progressing, we expect very good numbers, even in the July heat.

Those are impressive numbers for bolt-ons! Looking forward to the upcoming ones too! What was the torque number?

It barely hooked at all with no mods. We will only run this setup on the DR since it will go up in smoke without. We have an extra set of wheels for this.

THIS, Is what I have been wanting to see. Anybody can throw a catalog worth of parts at a car and get it to run good so it's good to see you doing like this. I'm looking forward to see how it runs like this with some tires on it.

When you say ported blower ,do you mean the blower its self and the outlet? or just the intake part? I had an 03 Cobra so when people say ported blower I think they are talking about the outlet also.

Good luck at the track. Mid 10s?

We are looking for 10:35-10:40. We took it easy on the intake only pass and ran a 11:47. On good gas we will be up over 100 RWHP from that run and a lot more torque under the curve. We are also running lighter wheels now like everyone else running good times with these cars.
We expect to break the record and do it on DR's with everything complete.

For the ported blower, we spend 30 hours on them getting the most out of each one. The case and front drive are completely shaped and ported and welded up where required. We also opened this one up to a 102mm inlet.

So are you saying this isn't a good package unless you plan on running DRs? I too am interested in a kit like this but do not want drag radials as I will probably never take it to the strip, only once or twice if I do. Personally, I would like to see you make runs on both stock and DRs for comparison.

601 rwhp (basically close to 700hp at the crank) and stock street tires would not work all that well for drag racing.

You could cruise around town without any issues. But if you tried to go wide open off the line or from a low speed roll, you're most likely just going to smoke the rear tires.

A stock ZL1 with drag radials would most likely beat a 601 rwhp ZL1 with stock tires in a drag race.

These cars hook pretty well on the street, especially for a 20 mhp roll. The cts-v is not too bad at all with 600 rwhp and we have done dozens of them.
At the strip you need tires to race or why go? Et is what it's all about, even with an otherwise stock car.

For those ZL1 owners that don't know, Keith and Damon have been modifying LSAs for Cadillac CTS-V owners for quite a while. If you search any of the Cadillac CTS-V forums, you find nothing but positive feedback on Keith and Damon of KD Innovations. I'm betting they'll become more well known around this forum now that we have the LSA in our ZL1's.

I'm working with them on my own ZL1 and I'll post up results to the forum as well as I go.

the same logic applies to 580hp in all reality. there was a guy who ran 11.40 on slicks. people run 12.2-12.4 on street rubber. does not stop you from running the car on street rubber at the drags.

I drive my car on the street alot. if this package on street rubber ran ~11.5 I would be like sold. it may expose traction issues though.

at an NHRA event at my local track if I did not want to get kicked off for tech I would be better off bringing an 11.5 second car on street rubber.

<11.5 with a manual requires a scattershield. As cool as 10.5 on dr would be they would not let me run.

Honestly, with this much power you need to look at something like the toyo r888. This is about where my gt500 is at currently and the car is way more enjoyable on the street with r compound rubber. I never launch it, but the car would get sidewaysfrom second gear rolls before.

I understand running race gas for the best times, but I am more interested in pump gas power. I gave up on the race gas when I parted out ny dsm, lol.

Do you take cores to reduce costs on the cusotmer's end for the porting? This is something I would be interested in doing, do you need a tune after the porting or can you just bolt it on?
