Yeah I talked to Ryan last night....that's badass results from a tune only! Speaks volumes about Ryan's tuning abilities. You're running real close to what I ran with exhaust and a lid. Are you planning on stalling it? If you want to drive a stalled car and experience what it's all about, let me know. Hands down best mod I've done.

1000': 10.5s= 12.6s FYI. :judge:

Damn, that's very good improvement. 1000' 10.8s=12.9s in 1/4.

I second, w/ ben. TC should be your next mod. Either ride w/ ben's car or mine to get a feel of a stalled car.

Its because the state of AR is not smart enough to build a REAL track. All the tracks here are either 1/8 mile or 1000'. State of Arkansas= 20 years behind the curve. :judge:

Hey Bene.. compare these 2 here..
The 1/4 mile one was a 12.61, with a 10.55 1000ft.
If I got that 10.50 1000ft in one of my 1/4 passes, that would of got me a high 12.5XX. It's still moving for a LT1...:)

Hey, man ya'll got some nice cars! The best i could pull out of mine last night was a 10.29@97.66 NA and 9.12@109 N2O i burnt a plug on that pass and shut it down after the 1/8th. I was the white Z28 with the red stripes. There was quite of few LS1 down there at least!

I'm not saying your LT1 is slow by any means but what I'm saying is...

I have 10.50 1000' on my 12.60 run as you can see on my timeslip. I'm # 25.
http://www.fquick.com/images/vehicles/full/203330845.jpg?1174076165

And my other runs at Ennis, TX were I had a few 12.7s 1/4 w/ 10.6s 1000'. I'm #28.
http://www.fquick.com/images/vehicles/full/203334285.jpg?1175729722

I had 12.8 1/4 run w/ 10.7 1000' and few 12.9s w/ 10.8 1000'. See the pattern?

Are you running on DR's? Cause my mph is always 93 but the best I have managed is a 11.41 with a couple of 11.6's for all other runs.

I saw juiced there but didn't see the thread starter or the_merv there. the best I ran was 11.01, then 11.02, then 11.03 haha. So the rhino tune made me have really consistent times. There were WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE THERE!! I almost turned around and went home when I first got there. The line was way past that little Y where the lanes split.

You are also a Stalled car.. your ET is going to get faster, but your MPH wouldn't be as high as mine would, I don't have a stall. Every day the track changes, so it could be better/worse. Can't wait for the new Engine.. :judge:

man that is a huge improvement from just a tune, congrats.

Yeah the first times were completely stock.......since then ive added the slp y pipe and slp exhaust and the rhino tune........wasnt just the tune helpin me out....i think that it was the combo of all three.......but i think that the tune definetly helped.....the car feels a lot better now......all of my passes were varied depending on wether i got traction....i need some slicks....all rangin between 10.897 and 11.00......and the wife ran a 11.003....(with traction control on)......lol......so its definetly improved since ive added a few mods....

I only got 3 passes in just cause i ran with the EFI class! I hit a damn rock in the middle of the road and knocked my exhuast loose so i had to pull over and fix that so i didnt get down there until 5:30 didnt get to c u run but those are some good times the air was good i got a new best on motor and N2O, so i was happy!!!

are you talkin about the stock silver ws6, and the owner wears a backwards ball cap? I saw him there but never got to talk to him due to the random flood of cars. I ran against him about a month ago. and he killed me every time, but I've learned how to launch perfect. (on worn out 16' yokohomas)

I liked my old 3500 a lot....but I wanted more. I got the SS4000 with a 2.6 STR which is hell on traction, but it is nice and tight and pulls HARD from a low roll. My next converter will be a PT4400 with a 2.25 STR! But yeah, a 3500 with 3.73's will be just about perfect for a street car that sees some track. I'll PM ya so we can hook up....let you drive a 4K stalled car with 3.23's.

I am thinking about going. Not for sure yet I got my new triple disc clutch in my car. I didn't think I was having any clutch problems but man it was messed up. The SB flywheel got so hot it blued the other side of flywheel. The clutch had to be slipping by looking at it. Anyway I will be interested in seeing if that is where I have lost power that I am not getting to the ground.
