They are very fun on motor, still plenty fast too. As long as they are taken care of, usually still perfectly good cars, but did see a lot of abuse.
Even after running through mountain roads, road courses, and the drag strip, my car was still in great condition. No creaking, or quality issues. Sure a couple of ring & pinions. haha They are very solid cars if maintained.
Don’t you have a boss, you could probably do cat deletes and a tune and would be almost the same set up, if I remember right Pratt didn’t hardly have anything done to his he just drove the shit out of it
With just cat deletes, JBA mufflers, FRPP junk 93 octane tune, control arms, and big & littles, my car went 11.44 @ 116. I think I could have gone faster with some more testing. The Boss would probably make a little more power with a Drew tune.
Pratt's setup was very close to mine. We had some differences in suspension, and i think he had Kooks shorty headers. He was also running a ported CJ and CAI from me with Shauns E85 tune.
I didn't run e85 in the 2011. But otherwise, the rest was as you listed. We sat pretty similar besides the E85 and you were a couple hundred pounds lighter. I couldn't shift up high with the CJ intake due to my trans being damaged when I bought it. Went 11.2 @ 119 in mine. On the street, after the trans rebuild, it showed a 10-second pass.
I miss those days. I had a lot of fun with you trying different parts to see what they did on the dyno and at the track. The 2011 GT is one of the only cars I truly miss.
They ran hard for minimal mods
That was the best part. I love doing more with less. And at that time, Drew and I had n/a cars that I don't think many believed could run that well. Again, this was back in 2013. And now 10-second n/a cars are pretty common.
As sad as I am to see the TH400 going in, you know I am a banger guy. haha But with the TH400, it will be badass to see the GT350's potential!
