    The 806 casting heads on your LS1 are indeed factory. The issue is that your motor might have a lower compression ratio (around 9.6:1) than normal depending on the factory head gasket thickness, which in some cases were changed from year to year. This link will give you a little more info http://ls1tech.com/forums/archive/in.../t-111207.html

    You can't win then all, if you only bought he car to race it and build your ego, then yea sell the car to someone who will enjoy it for then just street thrashing. Our cars aren't untouchable and a little knowledge goes along way. you need experiance and to listen to the car. Are you getting wheel spin? They won't always scream and squak if they are. What were road conditions? What where your RPMS doing comparied to acelleration?

    Did you you know that the power band really starts strong around 2200RPM. Where are you shifting? Is your clutch slipping? Many factors can slow the car. Big stereo system?

    I'll fill you in on somthing I have beent he pround owner of a 02 WS6 M6 for the last three years with a few runs under my belt. Last summer I ran a Cobalt SS and G35 both were close from a combo of bad driving on my part and lack of traction from cheap tires that I have plus a slightly sandy road surface. I actually had to peddle the G35 as I started to get sideways from wheel spin in second gear.

    How long have you had it? many miles? Before you give up take a good long look at the car and think about itm chances are all it needs is fuel filter (fuel starvation) and tune up and tune. If you want easy then yea sell the car and get an off the shelf POS that looks like and sounds like every other thing out there. If you want to be unique keep it and work one it. That is if you wanna get dirty and not have the parents buy you what every you want.

    Not that I know of, but flow numbers and compresion can vary with differnant prodution runs and updates. Thats the joy of mass production. Hence why there are so called "factory freaks" that produce more power then average. Luck of the draw.

    You'll regret selling the 'Hawk. Maybe not the day after, but believe me, you will.

    I'm totally baffled by this whole mentality.
    Your going to sell something with a C5 corvette engine in it- so you can get something else?

    Dude you are 18-- What do you want a Lambo? a Ferrari Enzo?

    Before you go and get dumb and sell your car, so you can build up "something else".. Why don't you take it to the track and see what your ET and your mph are.

    Then let someone you trust- that drives better than you, drive it and see what they can do ( Usually a father, or unlce, someone with more experience for RWD V8 power)---

    Why on God's green earth would you sell a Firehawk, to get something else to "race"


    If it has a major mechanical issue-- I can understand wanting to get rid of it, but then again you better disclose that to the buyer-- Karma is a biotch.
    If you disclose it as a problem you are going to lose a lot of money there, you are better off- fixing it (if there even is a problem) and hooking it up.

    People put LS1s into the 10s all the time and still make it street driveable.

    That Firehawk just needs someone who is willing to take care of her. It's not that hard to take her to a shop and find out what's wrong with her... Ill trade you my Cavy for her since that seems to be as much HP as you can handle...
