    First time at the track with my LS1

    Took my M6 99 Z28 with 61k on it to the track yesterday. Just has SLP lid, cutout, and hurst shifter. First time down the strip with this car was absolutely horrible. The guy I was running next to stages both lights before I had one done (he was a little excited). I staged both and the dang tree started going. Got a 2.4 60' time and ran a 15.1 @ 100 mph. The waterbox was huge and I didn't get the tires dry. I spun 2nd, hit 3rd and spun bad as well. I thought something was wrong with my car. This was time trial day so I had to dial in after that race. Well I had no clue what to put so I put 13.9. Well I busted out big time with a 13.6 @ 105.8 with a 2.316 60'. I got the tires dry this time and traction was a little better. Now for the last two runs. I again dried the tires nice.

    3rd Run - 60' 2.18
    1/8 8.765
    MPH 84.01
    1/4 13.371
    MPH 107.14

    Man was I happy with that run. Then I backed it up with a...

    4th Run - 60' 2.16
    1/8 8.766
    MPH 84.16
    1/4 13.374
    MPH 106.92

    I was very happy with how the car performed. It pulled hard down the track for what little is done. So what do you all think? Those pretty decent times? I owned an LT1 before this car and it had the same mods basically, CAI, cutout, shifter and ran a 13.8 @101. Thanks

    Those sure look like good times to me, considering how few mods you have done, trap speeds around 107 mph are very stout. My 98 with more mods traps in the high 109 range, and dynos at 345 rwhp, so that would indicate to me that yours is probably making 320 or so ? If I were you, I'd be dee-lighted!!

    Nice times and real consistent, with some chassis mods and DR's you should be able to drop off a good .5-.6 sec. I run about the same mph but ET in the 12.60's. I am an A4 though. Seat time will make you better.
