With all that crap you listed, properly-driven 5.0s have gone deep into the 11s (without a bottle).

    You and/or your 5.0s obviously sucked. I'm sorry.

    Like I said above....get off the internet and learn a little.
    so would you say it's the norm for bolt on 5.0's to run 12's, or are you as likely to run into one of those as a 10 sec bolt on fbody?

    most people consider "bolt on" as stock with gears, headers, exhaust, etc. not full chassis prepped cars meant to cut wicked 60' times at the track.

    a normal bolt on 5.0 would run 14's, but it really depends on what your definition of bolt on means.

    Don't you think the 92 MM mass air was a little too big for that combination? I have the same combination of parts on my 95 GT and only have a 76 MM mass air. Maybe thats why your car is under performing. Just food for thought.

    My buddy beats LS1 camaros in his 92 LX notchback but he has a full bolt on car with trick flow heads and an e-cam with weight reduction, 3000 lbs with driver. He also has some go straight suspension goodies LCA's pan hard bar kit and upper control arms and Nitto DR's. It's a legit low 12 second car. These cars are common in the midwest but not so much in pollution controlled states.

    Nope, I wouldn't say its normal for a "bolt-on" 5.0 to go 12's. Never implied as much either.

    I consider "bolt-on" to be stock with gears, headers, exhaust, etc too. "Full chassis prepped" can mean a lot of things, but typical "bolt-on" cars might have a set of UCAs and LCAs, perhaps different springs and shocks.

    a normal bolt on 5.0 would run 14's, but it really depends on what your definition of bolt on means.
    No, depends on what your definition of "normal" means. Fact remains - internally-stock 5.0s were dipping into the 12s in the late 80s. No power adders, not gutted, no internal engine mods.

    Obviously there are bone stock LS1 F-bodys that have gone high 12's, so please don't assume I'm trying to say the average 5.0 is going to outrun the average LS1. Been playin this game a loooonnnnggg time.

    the fact of the matter is a bolt on 12 second 5.0 is the same as a 10 second bolt on ls1. most people run nowhere near this.

    for normal people, it does take at least heads and cam on a 5.0 to run with an ls1.

    Thank you for setting me straight - especially about normal people.
