I definitely agree with you. If my car was making my oil disappear from day one, I wouldn't even mod it. Just trade it in on something else. BTW, how do you like the new ride? 5.0 right?

I guess I should say this differently... I think anyone messing with FI without substantially building the bottom end, is eventually buying a new engine. After seeing the parts that came out of it, I wouldn't push my luck at all. Still loves the looks of that car. Don't get me wrong.

I love the 5.0. I would've bought the SS, but got a good price, and saw plenty of potential in both. I'm not loyal to any car brand. I like all American muscle.

It's a little hard to believe, considering it's a 2LS with 2.92 gears.

Car #22

For Mr.Non-believer, this car is as bone stock as they come. My most recent passes last Sunday. Or for any non-believer, for that matter. I was born into drag racing; I'm no rookie. My dad has 70' Buick GSX runs mid tens and my grandpa owns a 99' pro charged Camaro SS which also runs mid tens. On these passes my dad and I were pushing for our thirteens, but the DA was not as optimistic as the drag times calculator. My dad's friend brought a weather station to check the DA at the track and it was about -500ft, and we also had 20-25 mph winds against the car. Good car, good weather, good driver. Some cars just run better than others

How are you launching the car? Best 60' I can get is 2.2, wondering how you managed to get a 1.8 with stock all-seasons.

As far as the times being under 14 seconds, I believe it, the LS is one of the lightest Camaro's.

On that timeslip, for both cars, the front halves were messed up, the 60' and eighth mile (don't know why). My best 60' so far was a 2.08 on the thirteen second run and on that day I went it was 2.09. I bring up the converter to about 1500 and then just stick it.

Think the only way for me to make the top 5 is a convertor and go to a track up north

While an auto makes it easier to be more consistent there is still skill involved when it comes to walking a car out on street tires and getting a good launch.

...like pressing the gas pedal down? which is exactly what was done in the video. I've driven the v6 camaro stock, it doesn't light up the tires like mad. I was just wondering what part of her drag racing skill was used to drive an automatic car down the track.

Seriously? Lol. Then you must not know too much about drag racing since bringing up the converter can make a difference on how the car leaves.

You can also just flash the converter and stomp on it, after that it's hold on and nothing else. oh I know

The kind that got her a 13s pass on steel wheels, all-season tires and an open differential.
