6 gens will be faster when someone learns a way to tune them well. I have a feeling it won't be long

The lt1 has been out for 3.5 years. How long does it take?

takes an engine near 10 years to perfect, sometimes longer. You tell me?

Tim EFI tuning is one of the only tuners that does the vve tables. Not all tuners are equal that's for sure. the e92 ecm has been tricky.

And the 6g has been faster every step of the way with bolt on. Tire only. LBO. Bolt ons without converter. We just don't have a car to compare to the hero cars.
Not as fast and nothing to compare it to is totally different. They like to compare LBO cars on pump e85 and stock converters to nitrous fuel,stripped FBO cars with A 5000 stall. Its flattering actually.

Like I said this is Christmas...they shall enjoy it.

I think Poppa is faster than Ultra now.

Ultra better up his game. MBO br0 leaving him behind...

He gained 1-2 mph with the one pass he made. In 1300 higher DA than before after doing headers. Burnt a wire lost everything on the dash. Didn't even get to dial the tune in.

Br0 had issues in the first 2 runs. Redeemed himself on the last. Maybe he can add a manifold so they can run even mods.

I knew he was going to be running on 93 today last time I checked. Didn't expect to hear much about it...

With higher da and 93 headers will be a wash at best
