    maxwax project 5.3 track times

    I took the Z28 on it's maiden voyage , with stock 3.23 gearing,mass air NOT de-screened , tb bypass NOT performed yet, free air mod NOT performed,
    and on street tires 275/40/17 nexen radials.

    WHAT IT DOES HAVE IS 5.3 iron block 706 heads ls6 intake zo6 cam and springs, SLP long tubes Y pipe SLP cat back, edelbrock muffler and some of the damn ugliest exhaust tips placement you have ever seen .

    I figure with the added weight of the iron block, about 70ish lbs, all the extra suspension parts, around 50lbs, and my 260 lb ass. and the loss if the extra cubes. combined with the heat and d/a today. it did pretty well.

    2.216 60'

    6.0599 330'

    8.4212 594'

    8.9771 1/8 mi @ 84.23mph


    I will do all the free mods + a 4.10 gear cooler thermostat ,a tune and drag radials and see where it goes from there.

    If all goes well I will put a 100 shot on it , My goal is for 7.80's on a 100 shot.

    come on guys, I have owned 10second street cars, but this is just a low budget test, give me some input, I know it is not a screamer, but does the times surprise you, or do you figure it would be faster/slower.

    What mods would you try first.

    Why would you pull out an aluminum 5.7 and install and iron 5.3?

    The car was a stolen and recovery unit with no motor and trans.

    so it had no motor.

    Actually I got tired of all the whining from the ford guys about the ls1 having more cubic inches, so I went smaller.

    You could get the 60ft down some I think, that will help. I can see 7.80s on a 100 shot. You could sell the LS6 cam and go with a nitrous cam to pick up some more hp.

    Good idea but this is a budget build,
    total investment with e-bay 20k mile long block $ 400 .00 $75.00 zo6 cam and springs, 4.8 crank $200.00 gaskets bolts misc $250.00 around a grand and making 340hp to the wheels and 320 tq is not bad,and on 87 octane gas.
