Default Too slow for my mods?

Went to my local 1/8 mile track for the first time last August. Just finally getting around to post this. Car just didnt seem quite as fast as i hoped. Maybe i was expecting too much.

60ft : 1.83
MPH : 86.54
1/8 : 8.05

Stock bottom end LT1. LE2 heads, 226/230 111 LSA. 3600 yank, UMI torque arm, LCAs, PHB, both w/relocation brackets. 3.73s in the 10 bolt, 275/50/15 ET Street Radials with some minor weight reduction.

Thoughts and/or opinions appreciated.

Still not bad. Thats a 13.3x or so. Who did the tune? How is the fuel filter? Make sure your TB opens all the way (cable may need adjustment). The 60' could definately come down with those tires. I could cut 1.8 with nitto 555r. You should be able to do 1.6 easily.

Ya,you're right. 12.5ish

I don't see what the problem is really. That's about what that should run IMO, unless you have a nicely optimized setup.

Not his, yours. I'm guessing better than 1.8 with low 12's.

Basically I'm thinking fix the 1.8, then complain if the car still isn't fast enough. Even then, you can't always compare with a car that ran somewhere else. Take a stock 09 CTS-V. Some run mid to low 12's while some break into the 11's. Is it the car, the driver, conditions, or a mix?

I'll for sure check on those things. Not really sure what the DA was. Track is roughly 1000ft above sea level and it had been hot as hell. I'm kinda thinking with better air it will run better. Guess ill have to wait till spring to find out.

Im thinking about switching my 58mm throttle body for the stocker. Then get a fresh tune. Haven't really like that throttle body since I put it on.
