    For the bench racers out there

    What do you think it'll run?

    Next time i go to the track i'll have the following:

    Adj LCAs
    Adj tunnel mounted TA
    Adj PHB
    PHB reloc
    3 point SFCs
    STB
    12 Bolt with 4.10s
    chromoly driveshaft
    Strano springs
    KYB AGXs
    Drag Bags
    poly end links
    poly trans mount
    solid engine mounts
    monster stage 3 clutch
    billet flywheel
    MGW short shifter
    adj master cyl
    SLP lid
    smooth bellows
    LS6 intake
    EGR delete
    AIR delete
    QTP LT's
    custom fabbed catted Y
    Magnaflow cat back
    Dyno Tune

    No DR's I'm running stock size 275/45/17 BFG G-force sports
    Assuming I don't spin wildly and assuming close to 350rwhp (maybe better?) what does LS1.com think it'll run?

    Assume also a good launch and quick shifting. I won't compare to old runs because i know i wasn't launching properly and these new parts will require a new approach to launching.

    I'm hoping for mid to mid high 12's

    High 12's at best. Street tires and 4.10 gears are going to kill your 60' time...big time.

    +1. It knocked a full second off my ET. Absolutely no traction shifting from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd. Best I managed was around 12.9 with street tires.

    With a set of good tires, I'd guess mid 12s.

    The driver is getting better every day. It could use a tech mod though. I can bolt things in but adjusting stuff starts to fry my brain. This car can use some serious setup help and tonight i'm enlisting the help of a local F-body tuner to recalibrate my speedo and get me on track with suspension settings.

    Still need to get back in touch with Kaltech about the custom Y pipe and header/intake install to go along with a dyno tune.... gonna cost $$$ but the car will fly when all is said and done.

    Adjusting in easy, as long as you know what adjustment does what to the car.

    adjustable LCA's get bolted to the bottom hole or 2nd to bottom hole. Some people find the 2nd to bottom hole works better. That is where mine are mounted. You lengthen them if the wheel is setting forward in the wheel well. Shorten them if the wheel is sitting further back in the wheel well.

    Adjustable torque arm gets adjusted to set the pinion angle -2 degrees generally. There are some good online sites explaining how to set the pinion angle if you can't find it through a search on here. You'll need a magnetic angle finder.

    Adjustable pan hard bar gets lengthened or shortened, depending on which way the rear is centered from left to right. Generally, the rear end favors the driver's side and when lowered, favors that side even more.

    I'm not sure about the shocks you have, but the Koni's have a little knob that turns the shock to adjust it. I have mine set to full soft on the rear and 3 sweeps from full soft on the fronts.

    car got a baseline tune tonight. HP tuners hooked up EGR and AIR and CAGS deleted. set the car up for the headers y and intake that will be installed in the near future. he thinks 400 flywheel should be easy with my setup. calibrated the speedo. it's about 1mph off from my GPS at 60+ so i'd say he nailed it. running a little rich since i'm still on the stock parts for now. hoping to get the headers, y and ls6 intake in sooner rather than later.

    can't wait to hit e-town. gonna be keeping my eyes open for some 16s to put some MT streets on for track days.
