    How strong is the factory short block and Transmission?

    Hey guys im new to the board and looking to buy a CTS-V Coupe(maybe today)possibly. Im going to do a decent amount of drag racing with it and was wondering how fast some of you have been(in the 1/4) with a stock bottom end and a stock untouched Auto transmission.my game plan was to do all the bolt-ons,heads,camshaft and maybe a nice nitrous system. This is going to be my street car so I don't really wanna push the envelope any more than that and do a forged motor etc etc... Any feedback on some of your alls combos that are similar would be gladly appreciated. Thanks
    Stephen

    Look down through this chart. It may give you some idea of the mods some owners are doing and their 1/4 mile times.

    Junkie's run a 9.76 on a stock short block & tranny...

    You'll be stretching the injectors with a 2.5 upper

    Wow so I assume the factory injectors are pretty small? I may go ahead An pick up some id1000's right away.. So I assume a 2.55 upper and what lower pulley is recommended that's makes best power on a non ported blower?
