My 11 second 1997 Z28
Here's some pics of my 97 Z28 I've had since 1999. It's progressed from a 13.9 second car stock to the 11 second car it is today
It went 11's on her last motor, but I've since built up a forged internals 355 with the same heads but larger cam than it had. The track pic is old, the front wheels will probably come up a few inches now when I install the larger torque converter and nastier rear gear.
Some pics of her in street and track trim below, and some build up pics from my 355 install in my garage.

Thank GOD not that bodystyle. Hats off to anyone who wrenches on those cars. Just changing plugs is a biatch. Got another headder Y-pipe on a TA Tuesday coming with cutout. I can say I`d rather do headers onthese instead of DOHC 4.6`s in `Stangs though.

Once you get used to these things it's no big deal. It went from a shortblock with a set of heads on it with none of it's wiring or accessories, or rockers for that matter to running in the car in about 24 hours (8 of those spent sleeping).
I can do plug changes on it with these headers in about 45 minutes..
