Don't think the ZL1 fuel pump will work with the 2010-2011 V6's (LLT). Trifecta tried using a different pump with the LLTand it didn't work well. Now for the LFX it may work.

I was afraid you'd say that's maybe one day the LLT will have more capabilities. Guess I can relax on performance mods til then. Or until I break something lol

You can do suspension to get that power to the ground

Yeah suspension upgrades were my next thought. I do wanna get rid of the vibration on my car. I think it's droning. Yeah running too lean is never a good thing.

Might be drone. Depending on how the vibration happens. You could also do tires and wheels for drag racing if that's what you want because if you're running stock tires, you're going to spinning all day long

The lift pump has no effect at these levels of boost...it is the HPDI pump that runs off the cam lobe on the rear of the drivers cylinder head.

Lots of options for more fuel....thats how some of us are pushing 600-700 plus HP on these.

Nice 600-700 hp wow!!! Thats pretty crazy for the v6.I never imagined our motors can handle that much.My goal is to get in the 12's but id be happy if i can run low 13's all day and still have good reliability.

You should be able to run that if you can get traction.

I sure hope so. That's what I'm hoping. The good thing is that I'm not a horrible driver. Not the best though. I ran 14.56 @ 95mph with 20 inch wheels that are a little heavier then stock SS wheels an a K and N short ram.

Thats a pretty good time if that's all you had on the car. You'll probably have to learn how to launch it again but once you get it down, you should be able to run at least consistent mid to low 13s. If you get some serious rubber, I think you can get into the 12s, especially with your mods.

With your power, if you can get a decent launch you car is definitely capable of 12s. You can be happy with low 13s, but its capable of more. There have already been two IPF cars hit 12s...one of them on stock tires with stock headers. The other car I can't remember if it had stock tires or not.

IPF also took an LS (with the heavy 18" heritage blank rims and all season tires) to a 13 flat.

So again if you get a good launch you should be able to see 12s. Otherwise if you spin badly at the launch it will kill your time.

No LLT on this site has those numbers right now. Gretchen got to around 600 crank HP with his LLT, but the tune and fuel was not stable. But now he is running a 2012 V6 with the LFX hitting at about 700 HP.

Yeah I saw that. Is there any manual supercharged cars that are running those times?i mostly see autos.

Oh well you're definitely going to have to relearn running this thing. How does the clutch feel with the boost? I know a bunch of people, are looking at getting upgraded clutches because of the new found power.

It feels pretty good.I don't intend to put drag radials as for the car is my daily driver.i figure that when the clutch goes out and starts slipping I will look into a new clutch. Seems like there's only a few out at this moment.As for learning to drive the car oh definitely. Ive have only launched it once with the supercharger. I launched it at 2800 rpms and feathered the clutch. I probly will go to a test and tune so I can get more runs.theres a race track about 15 mins away from me.

If you don't want to put drag radials on, you could look into some better rubber or some suspension goodies to avoid wheel hop and keep things planted making it easier for you to control traction.

It should be fun getting that thing to a drag strip to see what it can do!

Since the power doesn't really hit until the upper half of the RPM range on the IPF set-up, I rarely have traction problems with my M6 car on the stock all-season BFG's that came with my LS. I have not run mine down a 1/4 mile yet, though, and with the closing of the only accessible track in the Phoenix area, it'll probably be a while, if ever, until I do. We have to trek to Tuscon, almost two hours away at this point to get any runs in.

That sucks :(
That's interesting that you say traction isn't an issue. I've been interested in seeing since as you said, the power doesn't really kick in until the upper rpms

Remember though, I have an M6, so I have (what's left of) an LSD rear end. Helps.

Yeah the car spins out then plants down. And evens itself out. I'm hoping I can hit low 13's . Looks like I may go to Wednesday night drags this next wed. So I will update everyone once I run. I may get in late because I work late on Wednesday.
