Ran Sunday with a stock bottom LQ4, PRC 243's, TR224 cam .561 baby cam, LS6 intake in my 3400lb car and got a best of 11.83. The car had much more I'm just a noobie at drag racing. That's with a 1.7 60'.

Love the car I could of driven it an hour and a half to the track if I wanted to.

I've got the same thing, no mods done mnius the zo6 cam, and it runs great all day, drove from atlanta to richmond non stop, car gives a few problems, but mostly my fault :D Its a great swap, easier as the days go by, and will save you money,. What transmission are you putting behind it?

I'll be installing my lq4 this winter, it will have a TH400 behind it with trans brake/reverse valve body and a 9" 4.56 gear
Toying with the turbo aspect right now... either that or go with BRP headers and use a 100 shot that is already in the car.
