I have been to many vendors sites and most claim to be the first. Who was really the first LS1/LS6/C5R in the 9's? NA or Power Adder. While you are at it.. Please tell me who is ACTUALLY the fastest LS1 based car?

mikey was first to 9s
SAM was first 9s NA
Colonel was first 9s NA hyd cam
Cartek was first C5 NA 9s
MTI had first C5 in the 9s
Jay Johnson was the first 346 9sec car (on nitrous at least)...maybe it was Big Mike...they were really close
Rob R. ran 9s first with a turbo?
Mike Brown with the CE TA went 9s on a stock shortblock but so did Mike from MIT/Icon...can't remember who was first....I wanna say it was the TA.

but I could be wrong. Why are we talking 9s...that old news ;) everyone is going for 8's now.

Ronnie Duke is the fastest (read quickest) right now. 8.52. ARE may have some MPH on him though. Both are in the 160's I think.

Thanks Ryan.. I was wondering. Ronnie D. says he wants 7's in that GM High Tech article.

What about the SE cars...
Josey and the boys have gone pretty fast with 346CI motors.

I think Mikey was the first 9 second LS1 car except for the yellow GM Camaro.
