Took the Z06 down to US41 yesterday (car club I'm a member of rented it out for the day.) It was in the low 90s, and SUPER humid, so I wasn't expecting much. The car was feeling poochy (to me anyways) so I figured if I could run the same times as I did when the car was stock (and in cool weather) then I'd go home a happy camper.

Well I did a little better than that:

60 --- 1.942
330 -- 5.339
1/8 -- 8.040
MPH -- 91.48
1000 - 10.344
1/4 -- 12.295
MPH -- 117.74

Needless to say, I was a little happy when I got the slip (was dancing in the drivers seat while coming down the return road /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif ). I can't remember what the actual correction factor was, but they said with the weather, it was the equivalent of racing at 4500' (local tracks here are ~1500' ) The car was VERY consistent... out of 12 passes, 8-9 of them were 12.4x's in the low 117s (had 1 12.2, one 12.6, one 13.5 and one 16-something - clutch got hot and wouldn't let me into gear ) But all-in-all, not bad considering the car is stock aside from an intake, long-tube headers, and pulled cats. I'm wondering what some of the small stuff will get me (ported TB, TBB, new plugs/wires, etc.) along with some cooler, less humid air.

Very Nice!! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif Great numbers!!

I wouldn't waste my money on a trottle body. Katech said you can expect no gains unless you have a head and cam package. FRC Tom actually had a HP loss when he tried one.
