whats it take to get a c5 m6 into the high twelves?
my brother purchased a 98 c5 with a six speed with about 60,000 miles on it. he just put a vararm intake and a billy boat cat back exhaust on it. what should the car run in the 1/4 mile the way it is, e.t. & mph? and what would be the next suggested mods to get it into the high 12 second range? the tracks around here wont be open for a couple months yet. thanks.

He'll probably need tires but if he can really drive and has a good day weather and track wise he may be able to pull it off as it. I ran a 12.7 with the mods in my sig on a barely negative da day with street tires.
Not hard to do at all! I had kooks longtubes, off road X pipe, slp loud mouth, and full vararm CAI, tune, and old drag radials and went a 12.5 with a 2.XX 60ft really sucked but it was the first time I ran a vette at the strip.

Yes, and it has definitely been done on a few occasions too.
The record ET for a pure bone stock C5 LS1 manual is a 12.6 at roughly 111mph in good air with a good driver.
A Vararam and cat back can only improve on those capabilities, drag radials even more so.

I concur. I've got a Callaway Honker, LS6 intake, LG Pro Long Tubes with Ti exhaust and ran a 12.8 on barely legal street tires (Nitto 555RII's). This was with temps and humidity in the 90's. Oh, and I don't even drag race - I road race! It's not that hard to get into the high 12's if you're a descent driver.
