Default ECS powered Gforce tuned 402 does it again. New C6 1/4 record!

Probably the most fun I have ever had at a dragstrip in my life. We had 4-9 second M6 1/4 vettes out for a track rental today at Royal Purple Raceway. An absolute blast. No lines, no crowds standing around, no 4x4 trucks dragging water down the track, etc. Well worth the money.

ECS sent me a 2200 for my car. My tuner yanked off the MAF tune and did a 2.5 bar Speed Density tune on Wednesday. Come to find out, I'm over 100% duty cycle on the injectors. Meth brought it back in to the 70's% range. Big blower wasn't going on anymore. Back up plan time. Thursday afternoon, we went to test the nitrous kit that had been previously installed eslewhere at another shop. I haven't tested or used it. Nothing worked, nothing was wired correctly. Gforce just yanked it all out, sent me to pick up a basic MSD window switch and WOT sensor and installed a plate kit instead of the fogger. Car made good, strong numbers. Low 800's on blower tune. Mid 800's with a small shot.

My car still has 100% stock C6 driveline(minus the Mcleod Clutch), etc. Full Street trim, no weight removed, no drag pack or skinnies, exactly how I drive the car everyday.

Today, we fought a steady 20-25mph direct headwind, with gusts around 30mph. Something we almost never get. Here are the blower only passes. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw my MPH on the first run.



After that, we installed the bottle in the car, and changed the tune to the nitrous tune. I have a manual arming switch behind the shifter that I hit after I grab 2nd gear. The first attempt didn't work well as you can see by my ET, but the 2nd one did.



A little video of one of the 9.81 passes with the go-pros on/in the car. For HD quality, here is a link. Much better viewing in HD.

Big thanks to ECS for making such a potent kit, and big thanks to Gforce for all the hard work and being so knowledgable about what you all do.

Danimal, Didn't feel it. It only added a little bit of hp, and I'm way past its peak torque when I turned it on in 2nd gear. Just fealt like the car wanted to pull slightly harder. Didn't have a bottle guage so pressure was probably low without a bottle warmer either. A bottle warmer and gauge is a must for April.

Congrats, Mark! So this was with the 1500 Novi?
What kind of torque is your car making?

Great runs! It's nice to see some m6 guys putting up solid numbers. Are you using any launch control (or two-step)? Congrats on the record
