Was able to sneak in a quick VBOX run on straight 91 octane... low 11s @ 130mph, 8.0 60-130 as recorded during the 1/4 mile run. This thing moves.

I'll up the octane later and pop the SD card in for some better numbers when schedule permits. Busy tuning up everyone for no fly zone and shift sector.

The C7Z is a monster in stock form...you should be able to get that 60-130 down easily

Terry,

How do you like the A8 compared to the DCT in the BMW, performance and fun factor? Btw GM just released a 100 octane tune flash that keeps factory warranty, gets flashed at dealerships.

Prochargers suck. Like Vortechs, they make numbers but no performance. If you're gonna be supercharged, positive displacement is the only way to go, twin screw is greatly preferred over roots. If you must have centrifugal, go turbo instead. Centrifugal is basically a belt driven turbo anyway, so why waste power spinning it when the exhaust can do it better with less losses?

I have seen one at the strip and Shift S3ctor. I don't know what all he had done but he was running a full cage, nitrous, and slicks. He was running low 10's in the 140's mph. I don't recall what he ran at Shift S3ctor though.

The DCT is better from a roll.. But the A8 is much better from a launch as you can brake boost it. It's a stronger trans too. If we had the GM A8 in a 135 or 335 we'd probably have 9 second cars already.

That might be possible. GM does sell a control unit for their trannys. So if you can have an adapter plate made and figure out how to get the BMW computer to interface with the GM controller........

I must admit, I really like the new Z06. I think if I was to go American muscle though I would likley go with a Gen 5 Viper.

I bet if you used a Whipple or Kenne Bell or even a turbo, and made the same power, it would be quicker.

No. The fastest supercharged builds are all centrifugal. PD setups don't even come close.

Which makes zero sense because all the top fuelers run 14-71s, which are roots. There has to be some reason that the LT4 can't take full advantage of positive displacement. I'd also like to know the reason they choose to waste power spinning a centrifugal supercharger when a turbo does the same thing and doesn't cost you the parasitic losses.

The displacement blower is a nice clean factory package with good tip in response. It's definitely not the best setup for performance though. It would be 3rd behind a centrifugal supercharger and turbocharger.

He got married and bought a house so downgraded his personal car to an Infiniti turbo for budgetary concerns. Now that he has some parking spots though he's also going to take one of our other development cars as a beater, maybe the 340i, or maybe the VW GTI.
