If the 6gen is bone stock on stock tires, you should rape him from a dig.

..and there lies the issue....

You will beat up on him pretty good imo. Get him on the dig and then take him for a walk on a roll for good measure.
Good luck and stay safe.

I'm guessing you'll be tuned before you run him?

Any idea what it runs at the track?

If your setup is proper and sorted you should win for sure. If not you may be in for a surprise

Probably a close race. Most h/c ls1 cars trap 115-119.A solid running 6th gen will trap in that range.

MOST h/c ls1 cars don't run how they should but I agree it will be close because A8.

With each shift of the A8 the h/c stalled car will pull farther and farther away

Well a 3500lb car making low 400s is nothing special. They run as they should.

Do you think a h/c ls1 can only be low 400s wheel?

Very true, but still there shift extensions still dive with the stock converter.



The Op is making more power, is lighter and has a 4000 stall.

It will be a steady pull in my opinion.
