    E Moo - Call Texas Speed and Performance if you are serious about purchasing speed parts for an LS or LT series late model GM small block from 4.8L to 7.0L. Keep in mind the cam in Garrett's C6 (Auction Corvette) is likely designed to work best in turbocharged applications and may not be optimum for your setup so be sure to tell them your engine's specifications and what you plan to do with your car. They will give you knowledgeable advice and provide top quality parts and services.

    Steven Pocius - Any true, high quality oil will not froth. You'd be surprised at how many name brand oils do though. A windage tray helps to keep the oil where it belongs by deflecting the turbulence created by the crankshaft. The baffles in an oil pan help to retain oil around the oil pump pickup IF they are properly located for specific racing applications. ie: conventional drag racing pans have a rear pickup w/ a deep sump and conventional circle track racing pans have a right side pickup because of the g forces or partial g forces experienced while running on each's respective courses under hard acceleration and/or turning at high speeds. The conventional road race pans often have utilized a rearmost swivel pickup that works for both left and right turns.

    SleeperC-10 - Low 7s with a Glide. High 6s a likely scenario if it had a body to vastly improve aerodynamics. Check out the wind tunnel video w/ Leroy if you haven't already. The test engineer explains in detail how much horsepower is lost due to aerodynamic drag and Leroy's aero is worse than horrible.

    So why do cars need roll cages at 10 seconds and what does that mean for bikes that can do the same. Hell, I ran my 2003 ZRX 11.15 at MoKan Dragway years ago, 122 mph I believe and that was in Levis. Anyways, awesome series of vids and love seeing some of the younger folks still enjoying their wrenching! New subscriber here.

    Excellent I like speed ! Life doesn't begin until 200mph. Awesome job t . I like to see dyno guy drive or guy with mustache engine builder.. Truth is the guy that's driving has 2 passes first night out. blew motor up blew motor / melt down . 2nd time out killed 1st run 9.30 @ 145. then was off next.pass. continuing 2 loose mph time will tell it's obvious it's a show . Faster. Consistency Congratulations on 1mill

    It's impressive, sure... but not surprising. When you spend $35,000 on parts over three days that is... and I get that you "didn't touch the tune"... but you did take an aged, beat the hell engine, blow it up and then remove and replace it with a brand brand brand new build.

    You may b right but they r fracture rods and the stock rod bolts r torque to yield, I will agree if they used aftermarket bolts like arp. I guess if they do a tear down and show bearings and crankshaft then we will know whether out of round or honing material destroying crankshaft, camshaft, bearings.
