To give you an Idea...

My setup (changing currently)

2000 FRC
Stock Clutch
Stock Heads
LS6 intake
Stock Throttle body
Vararam
Custom Comp Turbo Grind 228/228 Cam.
160 stat
Hoozier 315/35-17 Drag Radials

12.47@114mph was my best but the clutch started to slip a bit, Ran consistant 12.70s for most of my runs.

I am going to 11.90-12.1@116mph depending on cam size and clutch

Really depends - which cam did you go with? Did you have it dyno tuned?
The cam is the largest variable in your mods. Absent the cam I'd say mid to high 12s. If you have a large cam and a drag pack you could go into the 11s with good DA.

Anywhere around 400 whp and a C5/C6 will run mid high 11's @116+ ish on a good tire if the driving is up to par!

Gears make a huge difference let that be one of the next mods on your list..

Driver mod will be the biggest issue. Do not attempt on street tires or else you'll be sadly disappointed. And it's been a month, what did you do?

Well, on street tires I went 12.78 @ 120 mph. With a 2.1 sixty foot and spinning into 3rd.

Note it was 78ish, track was prepped, I ran tires @ 23 psi, and launched @ 2300.

IMO corvettes are very hard to get any kind of good times with on normal street tires! My FRC ran 7.8's in the 1/8 on drag radials cause the clutch I had would not allow any clutch slip at all either smoked the tires or bogged! Went from drag radials to et streets and ran 7.3 first pass! I never even consider running my cars at the track unless I have good tires anymore, makes all the difference in the world!

11.8's @ 116 or so... Bone stock C5Z can run a 12.1 on a tire so you should be able to go 11's with those mods...
