My buddy just picked up a new Z06 and has already installed headers, intake, cams and an exhaust. He is calling me out and I need to know if I need C16 to beat him? How can these cars trap 127mph stock with only 500hp? My car has a 74DBB, fuel, HKS 264's, AEM, Full 4" exhaust. Pretty much the same setup as braddman. Do he stand a chance or will I rape him?

Very light, huge power band, and great gearing. I haven't bothered looking up what they have been trapping with full bolt ons and a cam though (I think they're past 600whp at this point). I would think the car would be well into the 130s. Has anyone seen any times for this setup?

If I were you I would go with race fuel, just make sure you have a good tune. And some good tires help.

If you have the same setup as Braddman then you should be racing Veyron's not Z06's!

He will be the new king of the streets. I just found out he bought a Vortech supercharger kit and is building the bottom end. He says the car will be good for 880whp on pump :( He is dealing with a shop called LG motorsports.

LG has the highs N/A LS7 as 638RWHP whcih includes headers, cam, polished stock heads and filter. They are getting CRAZY power on low boost w/ the blower. :yup:

ewww man, you buddy got in the the right people. LG is throwing down some pretty crazy effective mods on C6 Z06's. They are definitely one of the top shops out there.

First of all, do you know what your car runs? ET and trap? Are you guys running from a stop or roll?

With the mods you stated, he can be making anywhere from 550-600RWHP as an estimate. Taking that in to account I would estimate around ~135mph trap speed if hes a good driver. ET would depend on a lot of other factors.

I agree with this. If your set-up was optimized and you were on C16, you could give him hell but, from your posts, I've never gotten the sense your car has performed as it should. Your friend is very serious with LG. I wouldn't race him unless you are too.

Ken.

P.S. Don't even think about going to the party with anything less than C16 and running your "kill mode" map if you have one.

Agreed. I say get your setup tuned for maximum performance and take his ass down. I think he'll still be able to beat you since he'll be putting down more power. Time to change that turbo you have or get your shit built.

I would think a Vette like you describe would be a ~135 MPH car in the 1/4. Your car should be good for 145+ MPH if your setup is anything like mine. I would go on race gas whether you think you need it or not and run him on kill mode. This way even if you lose you know you gave it your best.
