there is a girl in my area that has a zl1 , shes a model. just now getting into drag racing . she got a mec. gullwing too that she has been racing . but got a zl1 she ran a 10.6 her first time out. but her family dont want to go any faster till she gets use to it more. so u should have some competition when she turns it up. but thats what the zl1 should be like .

Sounds like a neat ride What compression ratio are you using? I think your blower will be spinning more like 22,500 at 6500 engine rpm unless my math is wrong.

Your math is wrong at least according to all the pulkey charts.. if it was a 2.55 maybe. But its a 2.38. With the 11 cc dish its about 10.1

This chart is one of a couple out there.. I have a 9.10 lower and a 2.38 upper..

The motor made 15#s with just the upper before. I was thinking it was going to be about 17 but I guess the new heads and cam are flowing some air.

Ahhhh.... Didn't realize the LSA had a larger than stock LS crank pulley to start with. I was figuring 7.5 + 10% = 8.25. Do all the accessories have larger than stock pulleys? Or is this 9.1" pulley just driving the blower? Lots for me to learn about theses motors. Cam specs? Sounds like yours is going to be one spicy meatball

Isnt the zl1 blower only a 1.9L? I thought people were struggling to make 15lbs on a 2.3L?

Some people are having issues with getting this much boost.a heat exchanger isnt enough to get inlet temos down at this level either.. the meth is the key..
I am very familiar with these blowers and am spinning it pretty high, but I am monitering the bearings very closely.. 25, 000 is absolute limit if you don't want to eat itself very quickly. . On no timing it is seems to still ne making power.. I want to creep up on it.

The pulley system for the blower on the ZL1 is much different than when you slap a 2300 on a LS3. Belt slip is what kills my boost.

Good luck B!!
