i totally agree with you. the motor was stock..down to the filter but yes, having DRs on the car definitely takes it out of stock form....and it isn't bad news in the literal sense. i guess i misread your post. but yes, c6Z's are very capable of 10's in stock trim.

Awesome run. Thanks for posting the details on how you "staged" the car...taking notes for if/when my Dad says he wants to race me in his 2009 Challenger SRT8!

Just to be 100% certain the car was bone stock? No tune? As well was the tire PSI at the stock levels and the air filter was in, yes? I'm just asking for comparison purposes.

Nice. I just wanted to be sure as some of the Challenger guys were asking if it had a tune at all and I wanted the question to be 100% answered.

Question: Why are you converting to e85?

Be sure to post this in the 1/4 mile sticky at the top of the page, you have the fastest stock L99 so far!

2010 gt500 12.3

The first journo to go got into the Grabber Blue car and pulled out a 12.33 -- faster than Ford's officially listed time. Asked to back it up an hour later he did a 12.5. Some drivers were getting their 60-foot times under two seconds.
i wouldn't call 12.8 "along side"

Keep in mind the DA was 9xxft. My ls1 f-body clicked off a pretty good time stock (13.1 @ 108mph on a 2.1 60ft) and I was working with -2xxft DA. The LS1 12 second passes that are similar to his time were all negative DA passes from what I've seen presented. This car in similar air WILL GO FASTER.

Only a matter of time.

As stated. The Camaro SS hasn't experienced a winter racing season. The
LS1 Fbody's have had years on winters to achieve fast track times.

This winter we will most likely see mid 12s out of the Camaro SS at some of the faster tracks in the N.E.

i think you're right--- it's trap speeds are good but not incredible though. should pick up a bit with cool air.

Nice run! Bring on the e85...

You're just stabbing the clutch very quickly for shift while keeping throttle planted, right? What RPM are you clutching at? I'd be afraid of over-revving, or f'ng something up.

First - GREAT TIMES!!! WOW!!! The bar has been pushed higher. Honestly, I don't think they're going to improve too much, but hope they do. The trap speed seemed a couple MPH low, but it would be cool to see them come down a couple more tenths. It's too bad the Fall is a few months away. Who is really going to keep their car stock long enough for the Fall to get here, lol.

I think something to keep in perspective, relative to comparisons to the 4th Gen., is that this car is in a different league, at least IMHO. I'm not going to knock 4th. Gens., but though I want to see the car go faster, I think we're starting off well, especially if we're at least matching the old car's performance.

What does rev hard charge for pulls? I went to the other dyno but might do some pulls down there for comparison sake.

1 pull for $50 without wideband

or

3 pulls for $75 with the wideband

E85 will make slightly more HP and reduce knock with the proper tune.

As noted before, DO NOT PUT E85 IS A CAMARO THAT HAS NOT BEEN MODIFIED FOR IT
