I would think easy 12.50 and lower. I ran 12.50 with a little GM hot cam and header back in the day with less HP then you with my L99.

Good luck and have fun at the track.

Your first run maybe.....but after that you should be low 12's easy! Depends on how long it takes you to get used to launching it.

Est 60' 1.750

Going to race at Norwalk?

I'd think low 12's too if you can get a handle on what the car likes.

Well i got out tonight and wasnt too impressed with the track. Track couldnt hold it. Jegs only had one 325 m&h so i bought 295/45/r17s and a line lock. I had everything from a light burnout to a john force burnout.

60'-2.05
330-5.56
1/8 mile-88.35@88.35
1/4mile-12.83@111.39

met another 5th gen guy tonight his was auto with a cai and jre tune. Ran 13.4s to 13.5s. He said he lost 5mph from norwalk to larue tapping 105 vs 109

I seriously blame it on track prep. I hook better on the street than i did at the track. The auto guy was getting 2.1-2.2 60s

i was hoping for 1.7-1.8 60s

Norwalk a haul for you? When I raced there a while back the prep was great.

Norwalk is about an hour and a half. The only thing i hate is the number of passes you get. 1 maybe 2 vs the 7 i got last night. But i already have quite a few parts to swap to a 4l80 so i think i will do that and hopefully traction gets better for me

My last pass i grinded 2 gears even though they engaged and missed 2nd twice. I think my stock clutch is starting to take a dump.
