Default Finally made it!



I bought my 2000 Camaro SS a year ago. The first time on the track it ran 14.9sec. Since then, I have made the following upgrades:
-Kooks 1-7/8" long tube headers with catted Y-pipe
-4L80e swap with Circle-D converter (3200 stall)
-SLP air box lid
-LS6 Intake
-EGR and AIR delete
-MAF screen removed
-Free mods (air box and throttle body)
-Tuned by Frost
-Nitto 555R drag radials
-BMR rear suspension, torque arm and trans. cross-member

Even with all these mods, it still only ran 13.00 @ 107mph. To get into the 12's, I had to remove the air filter. So, my new best time is 12.88 @107.5mph, with a 1.88 60ft. I was in the right lane above. Here's the video:

I have no idea what you're talking about. What is "DA", and how do you find it?

I wasn't wearing a jacket, so it was warm-ish. Maybe 70 degrees.

Density Altitude Drag race times has a calculator you can use to help you figure out for the date you where there.

It's a bout 30-50 ft above sea level. If I had to guess, I'd say it's right at 14.7 psi.

14.7 lbs is atmospheric pressure

Throw a Fast 92 on there and ditch the catted y-pipe for true duals and it should pick up nicely. I had that same stall as well and for the cost you cant beat it but if you want to push deeper into the 12s possibly high 11s look into at-least a 3600 or 4000 stall.

So, what does that mean? Is that the same as running at 105' above sea level? I still don't get it.

I would love to have true duals, but I'm keeping the cats. I have to pass inspection to drive this car. I'm also not going any higher than a 3200 stall. Again, I want it to stay daily drivable.

A nice 3600 from yank or Circle d is extremely streetable and the gains in ET would be more than worth it.

DA means density altitude. Without going in to a long drawn out description, the lower the DA the better the car will run. +105 DA is very good.
