2011 LS3 Fuse Pull Question

I added a CAI and Exhaust on my 2011 SS. I have about 1k miles. Would a fuse pull work for a 2011? Doesn't seem to have a lot of power etc....

Can Anything go wrong with a fuse pull ? my 2010 2LT SS feels real sluggish out of the hole with the traction control off and in competition mode it will not break traction, with a v-8 with over 400 HP is GM serious ? Or am i just old school and think i should be able to roast a set of tires off for 3 blocks.

Here is a link to the fuse pull/battery disconnect.

What i get from the link is

L99 is a Fuse pull

LS3 is a battery disconnect

Hope it helps

You're doing it wrong. Haha. If I can burn my tires with TC on (or off) in my V6 you can certainly do it in a V8. By the way, do we really need a fuse pull thread every other two days?

The whole idea of competition mode is to get you off the line without spinning. The computer reads the amount of spin your rear tire is giving and then adjusts if the tire spins so that you can leave off the line better (no spinning). In true racing you don't want tire spin....you want hook up and go.

You want it to spin....hold down the TC button for about 7-10 seconds and then you'll see that both TC and Stabiltrack are off. Give it a try then.

When I got my LS3 SS, I felt that it was a little puny.When I installed the cai,I unhooked the battery,and it seemed noticeably more powerful,after I did it.
I assume most dealers put regular gas in the cars, for your free tank of gas, to save money.

It's that low BECAUSE you're in Colorado.
Lower octane at higher elevation.

Don't worry it's fine.. Mine is the same way.. and it does 13.3 in the quarter mile so there is nothing wrong with mine. In the summer weather you can't break your tires loose with the auto unless you do a brake stand and you don't want to do that.. When it get colder out you will see that the car can spin the tires. These tires have excellent traction in the warm weather.

If you think there is something wrong with your car take it to the dragway, but get a few more miles on it first.
