Thought some may appreciate this.

7.43 @ 150 due to not having third gear.

60 ft. 1.11
1/8 mph 161
1000' et 6.0302 @ 161.72


We also hold the mph record of 187


Should be knocking on some low 7's pretty soon.

Kevin,

Very cool. Low 7s for an Ls1 is amazing. It took 8 years to get into the high 7s, and not even three months later, mid 7s are here. Thanks for the info.

Thanks guys. Not a problem keep you all posted.:)

Original parts wise it's really just the iron 6.0 liter block. Other than that it's mostly custom.

WOW thanks for sharing. I guess ya'll will be at the world street finals in Orlando again this year-right?

I'm not sure Bill, the car was built for testing the limits of the engine platform. If it goes anywhere it will be to show off since it doesn't really fit in any classes...
