Just curious if anyone who is N/A without headwork is in the 12s. Either on stock tires or drag radials. I believe ive got the power to do it but cant get outta the box quick enough. Any launch tips would be cool. Thanks

I have a cam full exhaust a ported manifold and tb, and dynoed 429/395 at the wheels....

Back in the day, Flyboy (Jimmy) ran almost exactly that ^^^, too. IIRC, he had LT headers, a FAST 90 intake and TB, plus a Katech torquer cam on drag radials.

12's, N/A without head work... I feel like you're asking me to do a lot with my hands tied behind my back.

can I gut the car

I think high 12's is easily obtainable with drag radials and a few mods

Ok i was curious. I had a feeling it was doable. My best so far is 13.4 stock tires, stock car. I believe my 60' was 2.2. Im still new to launching a car. I usually drag my sportbike.

What's the fastest anyone has been stock? I would think the car should be capable with just tires??

You should be able to get 12s in stock form. But that's with favorable conditions (cold weather, near zero DA, etc). I ran a 13.15 @ 111 with only a CAI. But I'm afraid to launch the car hard enough for a good 60 ft. I think my 60 ft on that run was a 2.18.

i did heads, cam, full exhaust, race axles ect.

I figured it should be possible. A buddy of mine with an STI ran 13.0 at 103 mph. But he had a 1.8 60' how were you launching to get that 2.18 60' i feel tires would be fast if u didnt grenade ur diff haha.

My focus would be suspension on this car. A nice subframe kit on a unibody frame like the CTS should work wonders.

I was under the V yesterday, and thinking the same thing. I don't like the button-up tack welds used for cars... not sure what they're called

My maggie was "just a bolt on." :D

Lol. I guess any and every mod is a bolt on. Im jonesing for a 12 second pass just for the slip haha. Im afraid to burnout to warm the tires because of wheelhop so im launching cold.

How were you launching? 3500 rpm slipping out the clutch only way to do it with out destroying the diff and driving the car home, and it was raceway park in nj.

Ill give that try. I was trying to slip the clutch but i always get too excited and end up dropping the clutch. Haha.
