A good friend of mine has just finished another phase on his TB SS. His previous setup consisted of 402 stroker, stall, gears, built 4L65, and a 150 shot. It made 692rwhp with this setup, and its maiden track voyage produced two 6.9X's at 100mph. He started spraying close to 100ft, and obviously traction was a major issue. The 1.69 short times weren't helping, and that was all motor. With some minor changes to attempt to help traction, he ran it again in the on the 1/4 mile where it ran 11.01 @ 128mph.

He just added a direct port setup, changed the camshaft, and added headers. He just got it tuned and made 800rwhp/680rwtq, on a 250hp shot. Also added are a custom set of Bogart D10 wheels...........17x5 up front, and 17x10's in the rear. Some 390/40-17 M&H DR's out back fixed the traction problem.

He ran this new setup in Memphis a few weeks ago at the LSX Shootout, where he posted his best time so far before getting kicked off the track...........10.63 @ 129mph!!

Direct port......


Custom Bogart's....




Here are some pictures I took of it with its street wheel setup....



Stay tuned in the next few weeks for some hopeful mid 10 second passes. His goal is to tote the front wheels. FWIW all work was done by www.ryansperformance.com
(delete the link if necessary mods, not sure if it violates the rules......definately not trying to get a free plug)

One of the guys from that shop is working on a compilation. That shop took that TB SS and this Camaro SS...........which also left TN with a new LSX record.......fastest nitrous powered LSX. About 2 weeks after the LSX Shootout, the record was broken by another car. I'll post the video as soon as it gets posted.

They look nice but I dont like the looks of the one above with the drag slicks on it, just looks weird in my opinion. I am sure they are awesome to drive. I would be happy with just the 5.3L V8 TrailBlazer, then I of course could add some stuff on later on.

From what I heard, I think the more 'major' records were broken. Of course my buddies at RPM took home the record for the fastest nitrous LSX, but I believe the Ohio Boys took home the fastest stock suspension LSX 4th gen too......
