97ish Camaro Z28

So this guy in town has a 97ish Camaro Z28 and he has some aftermarket stuff done like intake, exhaust, header, cam yadda yadda and I heard he ran a 15.5 and 14.6 in the quarter this past weekend....does that sound very right? For the mods that I know of and the car itself? I dunno the time sounds a bit high to me....wouldn't my car run mid 15s?

Well depends on how good of a driver he is, i know from mine it is really hard to get a good launch in the LT1 Camaro's they have such good low end trq. they will bust the tire's lose with no problem. And is he still getting used to the car or has he had it for a while?

97 "ISH" could be either the LT1 OR the LS1 now if it is DEFINITELY a 97 then it is an LT1. Startin in 98 they put in the LS1. Now that said, even though the LT1 makes less power than the LS1 if this guy has intake and a header back exhaust along WITH a cam: he should EASILY be runnin 13's. They ran low to mid 14's stock... where as the LS1 ran low to mid 13's stock (with a few freaks breakin 12's)

Yea, but if it's still the stock motor, you gotta remember that thing's 10 years old. It doesn't have the same pull as it did when it was new. He might be running 13's, but they'd be mid-13's at best. Just a thought...

I don't know about that 13's. What is the elevation for this threads starter? I'm at 4700' and my friend with a 98 camaro ls1 is running 14.4 at the best.

Bone stock my 95 Z28 ran 14.1 @ 97mph on a 2.1 60ft. That was with 74K on the clock and late June weather. That was an Automatic 3:23 car with T-Tops, Bose 5 speaker and every other available option.

The 96+ got dual cats and were rated higher because of the better flowing exhaust.

FWIW with a cam (CC306) and headers (BBK Shorty) I was will into the 12s without traction and trapping 115ish in the 1/4. With just boltons my auto went from trapping 97mph to 103mph and that was without headers.

Elevation does come into play as mentioned above...where are you? whats the DA?
