LMAO... that was nice and subtle. Loved it

My mods/ET are in my sig. Like Greddy said, if I had some slicks/skinnies and could actually launch above idle, then I'd be able to run low 11s no problem. I'm basically leaving off idle and rolling into it to get what I got. Anyway, yea your buddy could pull it off if everything was set-up and tuned right.
This... not knowing the cam here it makes it almost pointless to guess. With my weak *** cam though I am shooting for low 12s on street tires (guessing around 12.3 @ 115 right now)... when the car only had the cam and a lid (stock tune) I went 12.8 @ 110 on a 2.0 60ft (156K on the block and race weight was 3600lbs). The 6K redline held me back a lot and with the current mods and a 6800 limiter I expect it to do much better.
I have the following mods (I have some internal stuff from the fresh short block not typically mentioned but full disclosure...) ...
TMS L33 Shortblock (I have ~12K on it) with stock LS1 spec
Melling Oil Pump (High Pressure)
Hardened Trick Flow pushrods
BBK 1 3/4 Longtubes
HP Tuners (Tuned)
The weight of the car comes into play as well as conditions/track... I'm in the 3370 range with a full tank of gas now (add me and race weight is a fat 3530lbs) and Cordova is pretty crazy when the weather cooperates. (A friend went 12.7 @ 110 in a bone stock 5th Gen SS last fall). I could get this setup into the high 11s with DRs and the rest of the bolt ons pretty easy. If someone knows what they are doing a donkey dick cam and sticky tires will have no issue pulling mid 11s or better. Weight reduction and 10s are possible... I almost don't want to bring it up but...
Cam Only LS1 9.986 @132.17 *current record*
2900 raceweight, stock 241 heads (2001+ motor), TH350 Trans, 12 Bolt (this is the reason people hate 'cam only' but thats the term)
