Suggestions to get a Vert into 11's?

Current mods in sig. according to the door well sticker she weighs 4970 lbs...

I'll have about $5-$6k to throw at her in the next couple months, work will be done at Lashway (they did my headers + tune already and I like the work they do, and customer service is top notch)

Already have 3.91 gears (not yet installed).

Thinking Cam, UD pulley, and Torque Converter should fit that budget, but will they get me there?

unofficially Doing 12.6 now (using Torque Pro app with bluetooth OBDII on a closed private road)

Supposedly 300 lbs heavier, but 49xx would surprise me.

Local guy (maybe Steve will chime in) has H/C/exhaust/3600/3.70/skinny/DRs and I think his current best is 11.92.

The door sticker is GVWR meaning total weight vehicle can hold.

You can get to 11's a number of ways! Cam and bolt Ons, good converter and wheels and tires! Or find a used blower.

OK that's good news lol, nearly crapped myself when I saw that.

Haven't been able to find official weight on the verts anywhere.

Thanks for the input guys.

I think you're definitely going to need a cam with all the other mods you are planning...

curb weight is 4100 on verts,i have a 2011 vert and we are at a slight disadvantage of appx 300-350 pounds to the coupe.i have heads and cam and long tubes and cold air intake and had 2800 stall and ran 12.10 .changed to a 3.70 gear and 3600 stall and was able to cut 11.90 on a conservative tune.with a little more aggressive tune and 3.91 and intake manifold and 25% ud pulley should be able to run low to mid 11's.take your time read what everyone else has done combo wise to see what works best.
