If you pushing over 300 hp, you should win by quite a bit. With a turbo kit you probably will run a 1/4 mile around Low 13's, maybe even 12's the Z runs it in High 13's closer to 14's. So you should kill him.

begone-yeah im shooting for 300rwhp on 7psi =)
Well you should still win, but it may not be a total slaughter. Take out the spare and anything else of significant weight.

For example my M3 only puts out about 280 rwhp, and the 350's don't have a chance anywhere in the power curve.

With good tuning, the SP63 should yield you more than 300rwhp at 7psi.
The Z has 287 HP at crank which is at best 250 at the wheels.
This is with a Curb Weight of 3217 lbs.
Stock Supra weighs 3515 lbs.

*punches calculator keys wildly*

Supra = 11.7 lbs/rwhp - 1/4 ET: 13.2 - Trap: 103
350Z = 12.9 lbs/rwhp - 1/4 ET: 13.6 - Trap: 100

At 100mph (which is also 147ft/second), a .4 second lead would put 59 feet between you and the Z, which in term of Z car lengths (14.1 feet) is 4.2 and last time I checked, 4.2 belongs in the '4 or more' category.

13.6 1/4 mile time for the 350Z is VERY optimistic, closer to not possible. A Stock M3 runs the 1/4 mile in 13.6. And fastest times I've seen for the 350z is 14.1

My bad.
Of course I left out quite a few factors such as WEIGHT OF DRIVER and Gear Ratios, etc...but you get the point.
300rwhp in an othersise stock supra, and you should be handling Zs without problems.

An NA-T shouldnt have to worry about a 350Z, I walked a 350Z with me being on the bottle, stock 2jzge, just exhaust (apexi GTspec, BL midpipe), no intake no nothing....

god kirk you walked a 350 on spray, with the 100 shot? i put buses, lol you need to go turbo

350's dont hold a candle to a na-t with injectors, you can safely run 10 psi with the larger injectors....

With that setup you should win him by atleast 6 car lenghts.
When I was Na with 206 whp I beated the 350z in 1 mile race by like 2.5 car lenghts.

Simply not possible, don't be ridiculous, the 350z has 40hp+ on you.

350z in 1 mile are crappy, after we got at 1/4 I was gianing on him in like a 1/2 mile, I was beside him and after that I just keep passing him slowly but I did pas him.And I don't know if they where manual or Auto.


The Z has 287 RWHP at crank which is at best 250 at the wheels
:eek: ....???? what the fuck are you saying??? RWHP is rear wheel horsepower .At the crank? and is 250 wheel horsepower at the wheel??????????:rolleyes:

Most 350z that I saw where in the 14.2-14.4 range correct me if i'm wrong.Don't know if lower time are for newer Z's but the ones that I raced where 2001-2002 models.
Doesn't the Z's have like a rev limit of 6500rpm and a top speed of like 150mph as their gauge shows 160mph (fuel cut or something)??

Who in here has beaten a car with higher whp then a NA with a NA?

Just tell him your car makes far more horsepower at the wheels than he does at the crank. 350Z's are cake for any NA-T. Not even worth the wasted gas unless he has a turbo kit or you're just trying to make some $$$ off of him.
