taking the driver out of the equation anyone think this can be done without forged rods pistons and heavier springs?
Well, I've heard 300hp is the maximum safe output with stock internals. Are you asking if that's adequate to run high 10's? I don't have an SS yet, so anything I say is humble speculation. I hear a lot of talk about power to weight and so on. At 300hp the power to weight is very impressive. The SS goes from the ball park of a 370z, to the ball park of a GT500 or Hellcat. If I'm not mistaken (I could be) GT500's and Hellcat's are low 11 second cars that I've heard can sneak into the 10's. (Apples and oranges I know) However, the only thing I can base that power comparison on is a peak number (300) for the SS. I really don't know shat about what the power CURVE gains look like. I suppose, like anything else that will make a huge difference. And like Noah touched on, getting it to the ground is paramount in getting any kind of decent time......I'll bet @Turbosling could better answer this question after CT's project is complete and posted for everyone to see. Hell, I don't even know what the stock ss can run in the quarter.....Based on the same speculation, I'd guess 13's. Sorry fits, I probably didn't help answer your question at all.taking the driver out of the equation anyone think this can be done without forged rods pistons and heavier springs?
