LS1 made my Fox faster...because I wanted nothing more than to start beating them...and eventually it did.  It was gooooooood.  Im back doing it again in the new 5.0 too.  The 5.0 in the 66 might take a little more than Im throwing at it at the moment to keep up but its a cruiser...a light weight cruiser...shhhh no, its a cruiser.

Which is cheaper?

A j/y 5.3L LSx truck motor with ebay turbo or a Cobra Jet? ;)

But if you hit the lotto and forgot to tell us, see the below. :love: 

2,000hp n/a?

Or something milder but just as cool?

Similar to the combo I ran on one of the Lincolns back in the day except the heads were ported pretty heavily. I think I went 12.7's on motor with that and the 6 speed (shitty tall 1st gear). 

 Hopefully you've got a 4.10 gear. I'd wager some 12.20 on motor with this combo given good tires, trans, and driver (me).

Still lighter than your camaro lol

The 4,040 race weight is with my 220lb butt in the car, laptop, 3/4 tank of gas and some other junk. :yes:

I could get out of the car, take all the junk out, run it down to near empty and probably be around 3,650lbs or less.

But why?

I don't race without gas and driver. Plus, I always have stuff in the trunk. My duty belt for work, coat, bugout bag, etc.

A realistic (race) weight is with you in the car and whatever fuel level you average.

PS, let's race in street trim with street tires first. No DR's nor slicks and skinnies. ;)

That one was the lightest of them all so far, ~3850 race weight.

My junk isn't ready to race yet. It's a CAI, cat delete, and catback away from stock. Doesn't even have headers yet. :)

New mods are sitting in boxes waiting for me to find the time and place to be installed.

Why don't you guys race to see who can get their car done first?  John get's his parts on vs. Joey get's his driving.  That will be beneficial for both of you and a bigger feat than either of you are estimating.

 

He knows he really doesn't want any of the almighty LS3, crafted by the hand of God. ;)
