84 Chevy Truck 5.3 LS vs 96 Trans Am LT1 – Street Race Video – C10 Before Heads/Tune Race

My buddy and I racing my ’84 C10 with a 5.3 LS swap against his ’96 Trans Am LT1 5.7.

Truck is running lean @ 15.6:1 because of the factory 5.3 tune. A rematch video will be posted once the truck is tuned to show the difference when the computer is actually setup for the cam and heads.

UPDATE 2-2013:
Finally got the truck dyno’d yesterday! woohoo! It would be considered the ”after” dyno. After my home ported heads were installed and tuned. It is no longer running lean. Now my bald tires are slipping. Time for tires and then a rerun. I’ve already messaged Mike in the TA. Here’s the dyno video after ported heads and a tune here:

UPDATE 2-15-2013: ’84 Chevy Truck was stolen February 2013 in Huntsville Alabama. So there will be no rematch race.
