LS-engine guys know that Chicago is a hotbed for outrageous EFI street cars, so it's not much of a surprise to see John Reese's 2000 Corvette making 9-second passes. Reese (Cary, IL) has run a best of 9.78/138, which is a really big deal considering it's got a 4L60E trans, it runs on 93 octane, and passes Illinois smog. The combo puts down 760 rwhp from a 427-inch C5R block with an ATI F1R blower and a FAST LSX intake. Reese credits Finish Line Performance in Naperville, IL, for the deed.
