Does anyone know what the fastest recorded vn v6 1/4 mile time is?

I have got a vn v6 that I have dedicated to dragging and was curious about how fast these things have gone...I think I have heard about an 11.something sec pass before.

This is all just from memory but without a turbo The record is somewhere around 13.7?, there's three cars that have been in the 13's. Vengence pre turbo with a high 13, A stroked VN?(which has the most mph and most potential but the owner is in the states?) and a mega worked standard stroke (which has the record)

11.4sec ET @ 117mph (Although L67 isn't that the ecotec s/c engine?)

10 sec VN wagon, there is a thread about it on another commodore forum (to do with some magazine about commodores)

"some specs on the car are Vn v6 wagon, series 1 engine, turbocharged, custom manifolds, th400 transmission with trans brake and 4500rpm converter, modified borg warner with 31 spline semi floating axles."

pay attention man :p I said no turbo what I ment and what I should have said :) is non boosted, you cant really ask how fast a VN or anything has gone with boost because it just depends how much boost you screwed into it and how much money you had for stronger parts. But yes for a NA VN if you do a 13.5 right now you will be king

Forced induction or N/A shouldn't matter, we are just talking VN V6...it's not like we have a broad spectrum of 10 - 12 sec cars to profile.

in the US they have the humble buick 3.8 fitted standard with a turbo. i've seen these in forums overthere claiming in excess of a 1000hp. so a might VN with one of these should do a 10s 1/4 no probs HP=$$$$:whistling

Yeah there are 100's of buick v6's way under 10 seconds in the states with pretty much the same motor. I've seen videos of a few with 1600hp. Theres no reason why it wouldn't be the same deal here if you wanted to do it, I know the pistons and rods fit so I guess the crank does too

geezus, 12s in a n/a is pretty good. At the moment I havent made any internal work, just weight reduction, zorst, cold air, chip, mini spool etc etc. I thought ill try to see if I could get close to the n/a record, but if it is in the 12s I dont think I have a hope in hell. I am going to aim for 12s though, but thats with a lil blue bottle later on.
