1/4 mile question

Well I've been considering maybe making a few runs at the drag strip after my headers install so I was wondering what times could I expect out of my 06 with headers,catback/H-pipe,and tune in the 1/4 mile if anyone would care to take a stab at it?

The reason I ask is my friend ran his C5 today with catback/H-pipe,and throttle body,his best run out of 3 was 13.1 with 295 KW2s.

The C5 is a bit slower than a stock LS2 GTO.

The 12.9 guess sounds about right to me.

Get some good sticky DR's and I see a 12.5 or 12.6.

Even with the small mods on the C5,the LS2 is still a bit faster?I thought with his weight advantage he would still be a tad quicker even with no mods?

Sorry about that.

What I was trying to say was the stock C5 is a bit slower than a stock GTO.

With mods the being equal the GTO will be a bit faster. In your case your mods are greater than his so you should do that much better. Traction will be your largest disadvantage.

Yea I know what you mean about traction,I have issues on my stock car so I can only imagine it will get much worse with mods.

I'll have to deal with traction issues for a while after buying the headers with install/tune price there is no money in the kitty for anything else at the moment.

I think we disagree here too. I would think a C5 6M with a stock 3:42 rear would be dead-nuts even with an identically driven LS2.

I know about the driver mod, trust me.

Beat a C5Z multiple times from a roll (he had a passenger) due to his shifting, having owned the car for a 1/2 day...

I'm sure my friend would beat me,he races alot and I don't,but my chances will go up with the headers even though beating him is not my intent whatsoever.I just want more power for the Mustang guys ie Cobras.LOL

We don't disagree at all on this. I made the mistake of assuming it was an auto. A stick C5 should be close to 13.1 stock.
