Why not swap a SS 3.8L blower motor in? If nothing else the shortblock may be a little more robust and you could still do the turbo if dead set on that kind of boost.lol its going to cost me alot to actually have my car run with a turbo and not killing my engine
Not to be an a$$ but he should have beaten you if it was a stock to stock race… Stock for stock the 04 SS is .5 faster in the QTR then the LT1 that’s in in the 95/96 B-bodies… the current ranking of impala quarter mile times 2006+ LS4 SS > 2004 L67 SS > 1996 LT1 SSWhy not swap a SS 3.8L blower motor in? If nothing else the short block may be a little more robust and you could still do the turbo if dead set on that kind of boost.
Fair warning though, one time I raced a 04 SS might have had a K&N filter but that is it, at the strip I beat him with my 95 Roady wagon with 180K on it almost no mods to the wagon, maybe a intake resonator delete or other free stuff but no exhaust or anything.
Like seeing a wagon @ the strip,no one would expect a wagon to smoke a stang,or blow by honda's...the point is have a sleeper that will leave you scratching your head(did I just get smoked by a wagon)???That would be kind of pointless seeing as my sedan runs 11.9.
The wagons are several hundred pounds heavier than sedans making them slower or do you FWD guys deny weight impacts ET? Base curb on the wagon is like a full 1000lbs more than a 2004 w-body. Even the b-body sedan is about 600lbs heavier.
My sedan ran 13s at that time.
I currently own 3 b-bodies one of them for 9 years I have slips ranging from low 15s to 11.9 for the sedan. Or maybe I should say had, I think most of the slow ones are thrown out by now.
