Re: 11.68 @ 117

Need to work on that tree a bit! :lol: Nice pass. How does that converter/gear combination work on the street? Just curious. Our 96 SS has a converter and gear in it. It's kind of lazy off a light, unless you stick your foot in it, but otherwise not bad to drive. Just wondering about this combo. Th...

Re: 11.68 @ 117

The next weekend I ran an 11.48 @ 118.42. I have been told that it was the fastest naturally aspirated pass ever in a Caprice PPV. That was done with a stock bottom end/factory displacement with unported heads, intake, and throttle body!

Your 11 has aluminum upper control arms?

Re: Zl1 rear diff or cradle in a ppv?

(having some trouble finding the sickest PPV's out there to use as template, time is money and I have spent way too much time it feels learning stuff some others already know)(and I haven't even started the actual build). But like it has been said.... "follow the G8, SS, Camaro boys". There is a to...

PPVs at the 2019 Holden Showdown

There were only two of us making passes and there were supposedly only two others there. There were a ton of G8s and SSs. This event reminded me of how rare the PPVs actually are in the wild despite how many were built. Me and Mike with his black PPV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddnUB1RcweM Me o...

Re: 11.68 @ 117

It's in the 23x/24x range. The converter is a 3800 triple disc from Circle D.

Re: Zl1 rear diff or cradle in a ppv?

Just go by what the Camaro, SS, and G8 guys do. They are the same car as far as you're concerned. There aren't many or any super fast Caprices out there, but that's because there just aren't many of them out there. If you never take it to the dragstrip and are only driving it on the street, you don'...

Re: New Tires - What Air Pressure to Run?

I used to keep mine at 34 psi all the time and never get alarms unless it got really cold and it dropped below that. If you keep them at 34 psi, you should be good. At least that's been my experience.

Re: Suspension refresh small parts

Looks like the thin rubber isolator that goes between the bottom of the spring and the shock.
