Took my CTS-V to the track tonight to see what it would do with the mods.

11.90 first run
11.78 2nd
11.77 3rd

Needless to say I'm a happy camper :)

Only mods are wait4me 9" pulley, 4" air intake and performance tune.

When my car was 2 days old and bone stock it ran 12.49

Stock tires!

I had a few "warm up" passes in the 11.90's and then decided to drop the rear tire pressures to 24 psi and my times came down to the 11.7's

My exhaust is untouched.

The only mods i have are the 9" pulley, 4" air intake and the tune that comes in Jesse's hand held programmer.

I got my best launch at 1500 RPM and had to roll into the throttle to prevent tire spin.

I was still getting a bit of spin on the 1-2 shift. I think with some drag radials and a more powerful launch I'll see 11.5's :thumbsup:

And if you guys are curious here's the time slips from my warm up passes.

7 time slips total and all in the 11's. Damn you gotta love these cars :banana:

Do you know what the density altitude was? Those are some great times. I was thinking about a 9.5" pulley, but I'm gonna go with 9" now for a little more margin of safety. 11.7 is exactly where I want to be.

Congratulations on the times. 1.7 60ft is no joke, i'm sure that pass was the best feeling. Nothing like the rush of your head being slammed into the headrest.

Your speed and consistency is there just need consistent and better 60ft times. The launch is is where your ET suffers, or shines.

What power did your car dyno?

Thank you! Not sure what my car dyno's yet but plan to get that number soon.

1.774 60's not too bad for street tires. Lowering the air pressure helped a lot so you guys might want to remember this on your next trip to the track.

I know all about that rush of having your head slammed back. It's awesome!

The CTS-V is my wifes car. My car is a C6 ZO6 that cuts 1.38 60' times and runs consistent 9.90's :D

ha ha ha damn i guess you know a few things about 1/4 mile runs then...lol
what tranny is in the Vette??? Z06 sounded awfully like an auto! Procharger? 800 hp? now a 1.38 is serious 60ft.

again congrats, on the 11.7 and the 9.9 for that matter.

I converted the Z with an RPM built 4L65E automatic. Best money i ever spent on that car.

Running a Vortech supercharger at 7.8 psi boost. 735 RWHP. More soon to come :D

Thanks guys!

Are you talking about Andy from A&A Corvette? Great guy! I have since upgraded to his full kit. I originally started out with the Vortech kit. I'm running a 3.8 pulley which puts me just under 8 psi boost. I'm also running methanol injection to help keep things safe. I drive the car to the track, mow down 9's and drive home. The car is super reliable and I can drive it anywhere. It's an amazing car!

Yup, he's the one. :p Since I took my Supercharger off of my '05, I haven't been over there in a while. Do you have Andy do work on your Vette or does he just provide the parts? :cloud9:

Thanks for sharing man. I remember you from the CorvetteForums. Always admired your Z. I had a black C6 Z06 as well. But I had a Camshaft package from Vette doctors with all the boltons and a 100shot of N20. I got a 135mph trap in that badboy. Man the Z06 was one hell of a car. I need to get another one...

Great times on the V! I was only able to get a 1.85 60' if I remember correctly. Pulled off an 11.8 but I have the bigger pulley than you. Hopefully my car on a good day with a perfect launch and drag radials/slicks can hit 11.3 or so.

hmm i thought i replied but i don't see it.

if the car wasn't abused, done and maintained professionally, and had low miles i'm def interested... esp since mods are less than .50cents on the dollar in resale (unfortunately as i've been on the selling side of that fence lol)

so far i've found a z06 twin turbo that has about 760rwhp with low miles.
