The other old friends we run into at Knott’s are cars we’ve spent days with for tech stories. Frank Lanzas’ ’11 GT fit the bill exactly, as it was one of two 5.0s we covered at Kenne Bell. Since adding the 2.8 Liquid Cooled KB huffer, Frank’s car gained a 168mm billet throttle body, which we’ll have more on later. Frank says he drives the stick car daily with 535 rwhp from 8 pounds of boost and 91-octane pump gas, and he gets 20 to 21 mpg doing it. At the track, he pulleys down to 16 pounds of boost and 715 rwhp. His best e.t. to date is 11.70, but according to Frank, it’ll do 11.50 for sure on the right day.
