Default 1/4 mile record for a "Stock LS7"

Just wanted to post up and show everyone a few pics of our shop Z06 and how it is performing. I don't want to go into detail with everything about the car as most on here already know the car, but for those that don't and have questions ask away.

That's really nice, but what is the "Stock LS7" in your title supposed to mean?

The engine was built by GM and has never been opened up. It has never had the valve covers removed... Hell its only had the oil changed twice in its 3K miles total on the car. The car has D1SC procharger and our automatic conversion. The "stock LS7" in the title was refering to the engine (stock pistons,rods,lifters,valves,camshaft,int ake,etc....) as built by Gm at Wixom and delivered in this car.

I run 100 octane unleaded fuel and the tune is "spot on"... I would NEVER recommend this set-up to anyone because I know it's a matter of "when" not "if" its going to a pile of scrap !

Ahhh, okay - just as few "bolt-on's". Like a blower

Wow... surprised that you ran that mph with a D1. Thought that blower looked a little small.

TJ and the guys at RPM are top notch. They did my whole driveline on my modded C5 a few years ago. Great guys to work with.

Good to see the shop car is laying down some serious numbers
