Default Got killed by a nitrous 6.0 4th gen.....

A customer of mine came in work today to have his tune looked over since he put new o2s in and also to tweak the shift points on the spray.

His car is a 98 TA, stock 6.0 bottom end, zr1 cam, stock heads, fast intake and tb. Its an auto with a small converter and 3.73's. He sprays 125 also. His car put down 421 on motor when I dyno tuned it and about 520 on the juice through an unlocked converter.

Mine is in sig (l99 cammed, headers, cai 474 rwhp on e85)

So i said hey preacher (yes he's actually a preacher....lol), lets see if my car can stay with you on the spray. He was all for it.

His kit is on a button setup so he ran in drive, so I asked when he was ready and let him hit it to downshift, then I hit it. Once he hooked, he had a steady pull on me but I'm proud of ole red, I ran pretty close with him till I had to lift for traffic.

Sorry for the book, just laying all the details out...lol.

45ish to 120ish

He was pulling me though, and I'd say he would have put a car or two on me before he ran out of gear in 3rd with the 3.73s. After that, I would probably come back around.

Not yet, waiting on cooler weather, restalling the converter to a SS4000, hunting for gears (im on stock 3.27's), and v6 brakes to allow use of 17's all around.

This run was on 93 octane which my car put down 463 on 93.

When you say stock heads do you mean stock 98 heads or stock LS6 heads?
