    good luck.
    I strongly agree. Some live in fantasy land and tend to believe that everyone is supposed to run a certain time, but when you visit the track it's nothing like that.

    The only way to really know is to race, we can tell you that 9 times out of 10 the ls1 car will win.

    There's a vid on streetfire of a Roush 427R barely pulling a Full bolt-on only WS6 T/A (LS1). He got 'em by a mere 2 cars.

    Gears will help a lot. Now i say you got him! no need for ram air hood.

    even stock for stock your car is faster but driver makes a big difference.

    i saw at track a month a go, bone stock 2000 trans am, auto was running 13.1 all day long and this was on 80+ dgrees weather.

    I bullshitted a car salesman at ford so i could test drive a new GT to see what they had. Ya it ran okay but felt very underpowered compared to my trans am, i was disappointed. I know there only rated at 300 but i still expected a lot more.

    I remember when i was 16 and bullshitted a young salesman into letting me test drive a 02 SS. At the light a v6 mustang and a sunfire with a fart can pulled up and the guy said you can hit it a little, the moment the light turned green and i stomped that pedal to the floor I knew right then i would have a f-body. Told him I got a free ride at a college and that my parents were spending the money they had saved for my college on a car for me. We went to a couple dealerships and drove a 99GT and a 03 m3. If you got nothing to do go test drive cars always fun.

    There a "true" 300, not under-rated like the LS1's.

    Yeah i did that for the whole summer when i was 17. I think that is when my hate for mustangs started, test drove a 96GT auto vert lol. SO SLOW, i admit thats a slow year of mustang but that was like within a week of test driving that 02 SS. A world apart those two cars are.

    i have raced a couple stock LS1s at track with my old 06 GT, got beat by both. one had M/Ts on and ran 13.3 and he was like 2 cars on me. another one was on street tires and both of us cut 2.0 60' i was on his bumper or closer. i ran 13.6@102mph and he ran 13.5 104mph

    an LS1 is good for low 13s but not everybody can get them to low 13s just like an S197 is good for mid 13s and people are running high 13s, low 14s all day long.

    good luck.
    It isn't if he "thinks" or not, if you read is responce he has raced a lot of them. And walked on them. Same here and haven't been beaten by one yet.
