Default Cammed LS1 vs Chevy SS

We took my buddies cammed LS1 to a no prep race, and he ran a bolt on, stalled, and tuned Chevy SS. His mods are a v2 cam, full exhaust, and a stall. He is still running stock gears so thats holding him back a bit.

Wow. I am surprised by the outcome. I know the SS has some weight to them as compared to an LS1 Camaro. I wonder how the Camaro got off the line though.

Couple buddy's got LSA swaps done to there's around 670 to the wheels that's the way to do it. Can do it for under 3k

Under 3k? That's insane bang for the buck.

That's piecing it together yourself. Boost district kits are around 3700 I believe little more if you want the ZL1 lid.

Those days are long gone. You would need to source a $400 warranty blower and a $300 lid to make that price work. Used blower with new lid and rail alone is $2000. All the other pieces necessary to make it all work is another $2000+

He said they left together, I think once he gets some gear it will feel like a whole new car.

I'd say that cammed ls1 needs a little help.....but good run.

I've seen very lbo SS cars run mid 12s. Like header tune only. I could definitely see one running 11s pretty easy with decent stuff.

True that prices have gone up but deals are still there and you just have to be patient and meticulous. I'm planning on doing the boost district kit sometime soon hard to beat the price

Yeah we did some suspension work to it last weekend, and will probably be doing 3.73s this weekend so it should 60ft much better after that
