Your HP computed from your vehicle ET is 349.22 rear wheel HP and 388.02 flywheel HP.
Your HP computed from your vehicle MPH is 421.36 rear wheel HP and 468.17 flywheel HP.

STOCK LS1 is 345 at the flywheel.
I race a (Corvette) SC LS1 with 7 psi and he runs your times.
How did the car act on that run?
How much boost are you leaving on?
What's the stall on the converter?

Your close on this tune up the car made 459hp/490tq..

I went 1.99 60' walking it out to the 1/8th on raidals had to lift and short shift to 2nd gear 2.8 seconds in then I lifted at about 1200 ft or as I went buy the 1000' lights. I'm guessing the car would have went another 3-5 mph easy.. The data does not lie lol you can clearly see all this happen. IN MY MIND on that pass it was pinned to the floor and I was drive 'n' the shi* out of it... That was the first time I have had it north of 105 mph but it does well its nice and smooth and all the coil covers are doing there job well...

I am headed to the Dyno this week after I road tune it to 23-24lbs and 800'ish HP.



STOCK LS1 is 345 at the flywheel.
I race a (Corvette) SC LS1 with 7 psi and he runs your times.
If that is a good pass for him he needs a driver mod he sucks. I have no reason to belive
That my car with me driving on 7lbs will go 11.teens 11.20's@125'ish...

How did the car act on that run? Smooth, but I have changed the suspension so much it better be!


How much boost are you leaving on? 0 lbs of boost more like 15" of vac..


What's the stall on the converter? It is a very tight 3000 stall Marty chance from Neil chance racing converter built off my datalogs for the car.. He said it needs 600 ft lb of tq to each 3000rpm and with no transmission brake I won't get there yet..

Don't be defensive, I think you have a great car with a lot of potential.

My computed HP #'s came from this estimator.
http://www.wallaceracing.com/hpcalculatorquarter.php
I'm not into dyno HP #'s, I like low ET's.

On the Vette... the driver doesn't "suck".... he just needs tires. He has cars I dream to own.

Is there a reason your not leaving on boost? It may not be a big deal on a V8 but on my car it would add 1 sec.
Nothing wrong with left foot braking on launch spoolup.
Once sorted I think you have a beast!

Hey, with 800hp what ET are you projecting? 9.6?
If you don't know at 11.5 they want a roll bar.

First off I want to apologize for sounding like a *ick! I was using my phone and Iím not that great at it yet.

I was truly not trying to be and I apologize for that. Thank you it really is a fun car!

I too use this but in my personal experience I have never found it to be accurate in my builds. I have ALWAYS exceeded their numbers time and again somehow.

I'm not into dyno HP #'s, I like low ET's.


I am not either! But I have owned a 9.89@138 MPH car that was 3250 race ready... You do the math..... 1.27 60' like a copier....

On the Vette... the driver doesn't "suck".... he just needs tires . He has cars I dream to own.

That should have been in the first statement then I assumed he was on slicks and went 1.50ish 60's Now you say he was more likely sliding to a 2.0 60'... THATíS ALOT of lost time I understand that! No harm though. ;-) I just met a new friend and he owns a stage 2 Jotech 2010 GTR I know all about the rich friend we run across from time to time.

Is there a reason youíre not leaving on boost? It may not be a big deal on a V8

I was just at the track tuning the VE table it is getting to be a hand full on the street trying to tune and keep it under mach 3... Thatís why I just roll out short shift and left early. Had I been there to RACE I have no worry in my mind with that CO2 controller on the gate it should go 1.20 60's on what I have now...

but on my car it would add 1 sec.
Nothing wrong with left foot braking on launch spool up.


I had him build my converter based on the 408cid LS and 91mm turbo I have waiting to go in the car. This small cid little 76mm just canít get up on it yet... Iím going to have to pull a bunch of timing and hook up my anti lag. I just have not done it yet.


Once sorted I think you have a beast! I do also! Thanks!


Hey, with 800hp what ET are you projecting? 9.6?

I know it sounds crazy but I really think at 800ish It will go 9.0-8.9... I have NO reason to believe this car will not go 1.20' 60's and that changes everything I believe those numbers you get are all based on like a 1.60-1.65 60' are they not?


If you don't know at 11.5 they want a roll bar.
This is not a track car this is a street car and right now I am driving it unless it is raining when I leave home. That's why I donít want a bunch of bars in it for when Iím on the street. There have been plenty of people die in a crash that should not have because they hit their head on the cage...

Yeah the track I go to doesnít tech at all so I race in my stock seat belt, sunglass and a fire jacket, but I have been thinking about going against everything I stand for and putting at least a 6 point in it to get me to 9.90 at least..

Did you have to do anything to the interior to fit the driveshaft properly?

What made you choose a Chevy engine over a Ford? I feel like this is somehow sacrilegious. lol
