You were probebly spinning somewhere on the track. That 60ft isnt horrible if your on street tires. After the 60 don't know what happened to you. that should have been around a 8.8 pass at 80 or so mph. I ran 1/8 mile with similar mods plus longtubes and a tune with a 2.28 60 and stopped the clock at 8.79 with street tires spinning most of the way(horrible track prep and forgot to install the driver mod that day)

The 2.07 60' is pretty good, you didn't spin out of the hole. Did you have it in drive, or shift it manually? Did you hit redline everytime, or did it hit the rev limiter?
As advertised, 13.0 cars, is 8.3 1/8th mile, so you're only a second away from being at the advertised numbers. Joke, I've never scene a stock GTO or Vette hit a 13.0, although all the bench racers will say they do...
1/8th mile is fun racing, you only pick up 20 or 30 mph in the 2nd 1/8th, kinda a waste of time and equipment. My buddy's pro mod runs 170 MPH in the 1/8th, 210 in the quarter, only pick up 40 in the second half with 3,000 HP.

I ran a 12.895 with my GTO. Typically it was a 13.0 or 13.1. Guys were always asking me what I done to my car but it was stock other than a hole in the airbox and some ducting to bring more fresh air in from in front of the radiator.

When you say stock Vette's not running 13.0, I'm assuming you're talking C5 non Z06 cars right???

My C6's ran 12.5-12.8.

To the OP, your MPH is way off. Your car might have been too hot. Did you let it cool off before running? Like everyone has said, most people don't run the 1/8th. That's not where the LSX motors shine.

I was talking my LS1 99, not a Z06. I saw a stock Viper trying to bust an 8 stock. Converter below says an 7.9 is an 12.5 quarter, nice time. I haven't seen a C-6 run good... Guess I need a C-6 if they really run that strong., LS-3 I presume you are talking about.

Here is a converter to show 1/8th to 1/4 times.
