    If you dont mind spending around 80 dollars, go get something I think is called a turbonator or sumthing like that. Its a little propeller you put into the intake. It forces more air into the engine and gives it more power, they really do help my friend with the s2000 got it and it helped out a lot. I would get one in my car but it wouldnt find mine but i think it could work for the LT1

    Ahh...those things are junk. They are a huge e-bay ripoff. The only propeller I'd put in the way of my intake would be a turbo.

    take out some weight. get rid of the spare and jack. also unbolt the passenger seat, maybe even the rear. also only have a 1/4 tank of gas.

    hey with you being so young , i wont kill you for this statement. try to think about the turbonators function. how can it increase air flow? think about it setting there swirling the air flow (in english that means slowing it down). then they claim it will mix the air/fuel mixture better for a better burn? ok how can it do this counting the injectors are aiming at the intake valve and the air has taken a completely different shape now, due to the intake runner and intake. everything they claim is crap, they are trying to sell this thing due to gas prices being so high. the group of people buying them have no automotive back ground and think it will actually help them. i feel for these people. if possiable don't take my comments the wrong way , just trying to save you some money. as far as the trap speed you got congrats, cut some weight out of her and your get a little more mph (atleast removing weight is free)

    Why? Because like your post here, it was of little contribution to the LT1 section, and was only going to start shit.

    if your having traction problems, try dropping tire pressure to about 18psi and launch a lil higher

    I hope you are kidding!

    You should get some pictures of the 'turbonator' installed on your buddy's S2000 we would all like to see that.

    Try racing one, I would love to see you race my friend's S2000, he is one of the fastest cars here, he smoked a GTO with the LS2 motor. What do you think your LT1 can do?

    Dude your gonna get a major bashing saying an s2000 is one of the fastest cars here on ls1.com, thats a pretty big claim as there are some pretty fast members cars on here. What does the s2000 in question run in the quarter? Plus that turbonator is a major crock. If your friend invests in gimmick stuff like than his car couldn't be too fast! Good runs to the author of the post it's always nice to project a goal for the track and come close. Peace guys

    here we go again, i'm gonna help you out a little and save you some face. you can never assume how fast a car is by it having a certain type of motor. thats where the old phrase "candy apple with a rotten core" or "wolf in sheeps clothing" comes in. i never judge a car untill i hear it run or see under the hood (in daylight) then you are still only guessing. so when you respond back to his comment to the hack on the s2000 just phrase it like this "What do you think your CAR can do?" its safer for you and you wont feel blood running down your shirt when it over.

    to the author of the post, did anything yet?
