As the title says, I had a ton of runs with a Z06 2002-2004 405Hp version .
I SMOKED HIM
.. no... actually, I didn't
For the record, at 16.5psi I hit 270whp and 275whtq on a dynojet in about 100 degree weather. I've since remapped to 18psi and about 11:1 AFR at redline (I was hitting 10.2:1 before). Take your guess at my HP now, I have no idea. Mods are helix catted dp, borla hush, tuna pro, utec and egt.
Anywho, I pull up at a light and next to me I find a Z06 (well, initially I thought it was a C5 with a brake duct job). We did a 2nd to a top of 3rd pull and I had my front bumper at his rear end. Following we only did 3rd - top of 4th gear pulls. The outcome was always the same, through third he'd get a 1/2 car, 4th was 1.5 cars, and 5th was going to get a little worse, so I ended it.
The exhaust on those cars sound great , and the tail lights are to die for. At a light before we split ways, I asked if his car was really a Z06 (I knew at this point it was), he asked if I was really an STi and complimented me. Final words were that I needed a new turbo.
Very nice cars, and I expect FAR worse outcomes when messing with the new Z06's with the LS7's.
