    Hell, if you only went to 60 you don't need stage 4 for me to believe that I thought we were talking to triple digits here or at least close to it. A stage 2 WRX with a good driver could take a mediocre driver in a Z06 to 60.

    You seem on top of the subject, but you talk about the VF22 setup as if it is lesser than a VF30 equivalent. The VF30 is the smaller turbo here...

    I believe it because not all (better make that not many at all) Z06s turn low 12s @ 117mph. This is NOT documented! There is no such thing as documented 1/4 mile times for a type of car. Sure, one, 3, even hundreds could have turned that time, but thousands turn much, much slower, even with respectable drivers. It is the wonderful world of engineering tolerances. No two assembly line cars are equivalent.

    I race at Bristol Motor Speedway, and N/A cars never run what they should. On the night I ran 14.0 @ 96 (pulled hose[15psi], no mods), there was an '02 Z06 with drag radials turning at best low 13s. The guy is a corvetteforum member and knew how to drive. You could tell from watching him launch and shift...he was getting healthy chirps when powershifting 2nd from the DRs. This is the real world, where anything can happen (Same night, a 2k3 [supercharged] cobra ran a best of 13.6 on factory rubber)

    Those are some stout numbers for a VF 22 with 300 WHP. The mile time for his VF 22 setup is equal to the VF30 stage 4. The VF 30 Stage 4 puts down 340 HP to the wheels and runs 12.40 at 108 mph with an additional 40 HP to the wheels. The documented time for a Z06 is 12.40 at 117 MPH. So as you can see a stage 4 WRX and a Z06 are pretty much equal from a dig to the mile, but from a roll the Z06 will walk the Stage 4. Both cars weigh 40 pounds with in each other and the WHP is about the same. The WRX has the gearing advantage and that give it the lower end advantage, but the Vette will kill it after the mile.

    I belive that they both use the same compressor housing and the VF30 has a bigger exhaust housing. From what I have read, the VF30 Flows more AIR.

    I am going by the latest motor trend stats on the Z06 and that to me is a documented time. Read my previouse post, and you will see that I agree with you on the wide diffrences in times for a Z06 or any other car.

    It has the same compressor housing of a 22, but the exhaust is the same as a 24...smaller...30s run out of breath around 19psi while 22s will burn 22psi+ (not for long) due to the less restrictive hot side.

    Thumbs up

    I stand corrected. The 22 flow better air and holds bigger boost.
    VF 30 440 CFI and the 22 480 CFI. The VF30 esier to tune. Your game is strong

    but a z06, you beat the driver not the car. sorry.
    Unfortunately, a car is worthless without the driver. Maybe if you were driving the z06, you would have won, but thats irrelevant here. He gets my props

    Yah the statement about you beat the driver not the car is just stupid.
