My Z might be the mildest 10 sec car around...reground TR224 cam,5.3 heads & yank 3000 stall & a Sam Miller tune,went 10.80@124 a couple wks ago @ Crandell....w/125 dry..w/4L60e still gets 20 mpg w/3.23's P.S. Lookin for SS hood & wing factory or aftermarket so to repaint car soon, PM me if anyone has a good deal thanks..

Very Nice!

I love that 60ft! I am a full .10 off of that. Did you do that with a stock front tire or skinny's?

I am looking for ways to get mine to 10.50s without gutting the car or adding a cam. This is my daily driver so I'm not interested in taking the bumpers, or any safety items out. We just now are getting the good racing air down here, and it will probably last til about mid march or so, so not much time to play til the hot & humid conditions come back.

Here is what I'm thinking I would need to go from 10.80 to 10.50

front runners
underdrive pulley
increase nitrous to 175

Do you think this would be enough?

skinny's - weld prostars all the way around.

60' time is the easiest way to cut that time down. the mods you listed below should get it there though. maybe even a 10.4x

Kinda cerious why dont you all just build a engine that runs 10s instead of spraying? The LS1 platform has tons of options, heads,cam and easy tune ability. 500hp and some light weight rims and seats would do it. I know it cost a little more but when you break your rear end or fry a piston you will have to do it anyway. Just asking not trying to start fight im just wondering why alot of LS1 guys are always pushing so much nitrous.

Why didn't you put a stock LS2 in your mustang and run mid 10's rather than build a stroked 302?

The answer in most cases is: "because that's what we wanted to do".

My car is a daily driver, doesn't cam, gets 20+ mpg and has all the creature comforts. At the same time I can change the tires and make consistent 10 second passes. Which is exactly what I wanted it to do.

11-27-2009, 02:44 PM
Ok just cerious is all. Actually i thought about using a LS1/6.0. Then I realised how more potential the 351C/351W offered (ME) over the LS1. I might do a swap later on if chevy catches up with ford in after market parts. Oh and my 302 is way cheaper then LS2. Dude realise im not here to try and piss ya off or start a war just was wondering is all. You have a very nice setup.. But the nitrous might get expensive after while! My buddies old 2002 WS6 had a ATI S/C on it and it was a beast. Seem like we replaced bearings once a year with the Nitrous.

Thats what Im doing. A stock 6.0L with a cam and my Mustang should run well into the tens. I paid $500 for the motor.
I have been the small block Ford route a hundred times and Im all set with them for a while.
Ill bet with a 150 pill and some light weight wheels and tires you could go some 10.50s. Very impressive for such a mild combo.

a non nitrous Mild LS1 Im sure can be made to run 10s..

Just a stall, cam only and gears on an auto and weight reduction can most probably do it, without using nitrous

the 224 and 5.3 H/C car running 10s is good, but I think there are milder setups out there (not trying to steal your thunder)... Hell I have a 402 Z28, M6 3.73s and I still havent ran 10s yet..


there are many options out there.

Thanks! I hoping I'll be able to do it the next track outing. I feel like I haven't gotten the most out of it yet.

I think you will be really happy with that 6.0 swap. Imo I don't know why anyone still runs small block fords in those cars anymore. LOL those cars downright fly with ls based engines. A frined of mine runs in 10s with a bone stock ls2 on HP! Good luck with your build!

Asking LS guys why we use nitrous is like asking a Ford guy why they like to stroke their shit. Answer is easy. We have the cubes to get it done from the get go, you guys don't. I will gladly run you down the track motor for motor and see what the outcome is. I'm not picking a fight either. I'm a former mustang guy and Ford does have a larger aftermarket for their Stangs but I believe that Chevy built my 1999 Corvette the right way and I don't need as many options.

Show me ONE Mustang on stock unmodified suspension that can pull a
mid 1.4 sixty foot. I can show you at least one Vette that does it pretty consistantly.

Sounds like a nice setup. It does seem like your combo is more geared toward running n/a rather than on spray given the 4200 stall and 4.10 gear. I think you can definitely reach your goal of running 10s on motor.

26" tires, 6spd rear, stock heads, stock suspension, full exhaust, torquer v2 cam, 3600 yank, and 150 wet shot pulling 9* of timing.

10.6 @ 129.6

it was kindof a sleeper...

Since then I've went with 325 M/T out back and skinnies up front (prostars), and just put a PTC nitrous converter in it a few wks ago. Gonna spray the 200 hit this season and run race fuel :nod:

Seems like there are more Fbodies than C5s in this range. I mean I can assume thats because there were more Fbodies produced, but I dont see much from the vette crowd.

Anyone else wanna speak on any other mild vettes in the 10s, what it takes to accomplish this, and what the main obstacles are?

IMO, it comes down to how hard you want to work on what you already have rather then just bolt on some more parts to go faster. Its about getting the combination to work as one. I put in many hrs into working out the little details to get my car to this point.
