Depends on you the driver and track conditions. If all is well you definitely can hit low 13s. I've seen numerous LS f-bodies over the years do that - in bone stock form.

hawk246 ran 12.8 with his firehawk ..ONLY mods dr's and a stall..so YES ur car is easily capable of low 13s and some.....his car is an auto with stock 323s...are u a 6speed or auto??? a 6 speed def takes some practice launching at the track...with an auto id bet money youll at least be in the low 13s if not high 12s with a shitty 60ft time...2.1 or 2.2 ....how much above sea level are u? and texas this time of yr temps are prolly over 100..that could hurt u a TON..maybe thats what dad is gettin at....come oct youll show him 12s

Low 13s are easily had w/ traction. I'd wait till it gets a little closer to fall though. I'd say you'll probably do no better than 13.5 right now. Once tuned and breathing good, low 13s in the heat will be no issue.96 Imp SS- 12.74@103, 1.74 60' out of fuel

I was hitting 13.2 back when i was bone stock, except i did have sfc. Didn't even have dr's yet. I would say get some dr's and you should be good for low 13s if not better. Now i have all the bolt ons and have yet to go back to the track, can't wait.

Oh ya and i have sfc's.... and for the weather i think the end of the month it should be cloudy and about 60 degrees... i love cold air! I am hoping high 12's with long tubes and ORY

With our F-bodies it varies so widely. Some LS1 guys will run really good - like low low 13's to high 12's, then some guys will run mid 13's with the same couple mods. It's really hard to estimate, you just have to go and see.

why is it so hard to believe you can hit low 13s with a 6 speed? shit, you shift fast and cut a decent sixty you may even hit a high 12. these cars have way more in them than a little 13 flat stock.

Went to the drags last night for the 1st time and ran a 13.23. All that is done to my car is cold air intake, throttle body bypass, and a tune.

on my first few runs all i had was the k&n fipk and a tune and i could pull 13.0-13.3, but now i should be running much quicker
