back from the track!!!!!!!
As you all know I am new to the site and also new to the LS1 scene. I been in the Mustang scene too long and decided to make a change. Anyway my ride is an '99 Z28 auto. The only thing that has been done to it is K&N filter and Flowmasters. I went to the 1/8 mile track and these were my times.
60ft. 2.15 with Yokohama 245/50/16 tires. YK520 in back.
I ran 3 times and they were all in the 9.0's. What do you think about these times? Are they good for a stock auto?

According to the chart you are running low 14's. Your car should be much faster especially since you live in Texas. As a stock car my 02 Z ran 13.50's @ 105 in the 1/4 out here in Phoenix. My time is typical, although some LS1 4th gens are as much as .25 to .50 seconds (some even more) faster than mine.
Have you ever raced on a track? A tip if you have an A4: Put it in drive (not OD) and let the computer do the shifting. If you have an M6 you are on your own. Stock tires are not very sticky. There are more.

Mine ran 14.6, bone stock with street tires... A lot of bolt-ons & mods later, now it's in the high 10's ! Good Luck !!!

I did put it in drive. The first D right? and let the computer do the shifting. Actually my friend has a 2000 Trans Am 6 speed and ran a 9.1. He was expecting me to run a 9.3 or 9.4.
That's typical around here. Unless we all suck at driving.lol
Last night there was a corvette running 9.2 and 9.1
A GTO was running similar times.
The track wasn't hooking good either.

I leave mine in OD... Guess it's the same ???

I have a 2002 ls1 m-6 bone stock and at an 1/8 mile track at 800' elv. it ran 3 back to back 8.413, 8.416, 8.414 with a 1.87 60' time @ around 86mph, launching at 3,300 rpm with drag radials. according to the conversion chart thats about a 13.10 t0 a 13 .13 in the 1/4 mile.

D*mn that's good Maxwax. Mine's an auto so I can't take off that fast.
Good times nonetheless. I would be happy if I ran a 8.7 stock.

my car bone stock ran 8.55 with a 2.0 60' its also an a4

Well hell what am I doing wrong.
9.0 is pretty slow compare to you all.
I just put it in the first D, stall it to 1000rpm's and go.
I know I can go a little faster if I drop my 60 foot to at least a 2.0
but I don't know if that's going to happen with stock type tires.
huh, I guess I need a little more practice.
How did you lauch your car??
Mine's a high mileage car,135k maybe that's why.

Maybe a good tune up?
09-23-2007, 11:41 AM #11
My car run consistent 8.3's in the 1/8 at 86mph with a 1.9 60ft on street tires. I have a few bolt-ons though. I don't think your times are all that bad considering the high miles on your car!! Stock my car went email@example.com with a 2.1 60ft if that makes your feel better!

i stalled my car up to about 1500rpm's, my car was stock, but i had DR's, my car only had 49000 miles on it at the time

I just talked to the guy who sold the car to me and ask him exactly what he had done to the car and he said:
K&N Filter .
Granatelli MAF(don't know what size).
I have just installed a SLP Lid and I could feel a difference. Is the Granatelli hurting me or helping me? The car was never tuned for the Granatelli MAF.
So I don't know if with a tune it can make a difference. How much time can I lose in the eight mile with 3.73's since I already have 3.23's??
Going to the track next weekend and hope I reduce a .1 off, with the slp lid. What do you think? Also is there an ORY I can buy to work with stock headers?

when i put my flowmaster cat back i went 8.45; after my lid, K&N, free ram air i went 8.37; after i installed 3.73s, 160 thermostat, and got a diblosport programer, i went 7.97, however, my 60ft is still 2.0? with everything i picked up 6mph
09-30-2007, 06:44 PM #18
Did you had 3.23's to start with??
