94 Z28 6 speed Vs 01 Z28 6 speed

This is a discussion on 94 Z28 6 speed Vs 01 Z28 6 speed within the Kill Stories forums, part of the Racing Forums category; I like both ls1 goats and lt1 f bods, they each have their own advantages...

    well i actually had the chance to race my LT1 yesterday but it had a coolant leak and was trying to figure out from were. After putting my hand on the radiator cap and burning it almost i figured out the leak was from a loose radiator cap, lol. It was at night so hard to tell were the coolant was dripping from or in my case pooring out of since coolant was everywere. When we race both cars will start in 2nd gear and will end it in 3rd, i thought it would be fair to both cars LS and LT. The reason why is because the LT has the 4.10's and will do good in 2nd gear and the LS does really good in 3rd gear and will see which has better top end in that gear, ofcourse the LT with the gears will do even better in 1st but want to see how it does in the top end and with crappy tires wont grip anyway in 1st. I dont want to go anything above 3rd due to high speeds as it is i figure those 2 gears will tell alot about the LT torque and LS top end and see which car comes out on top.

    I am looking at C5 Z06's. I got a real hard on over those man. I love my friends 02 black/black. I cream my jeans just thinking about that thing!
    Well if your considering stepping up to a Z06 then I guess that's just a no brainer!

    Agreed no brainer on it, i was very close to buying one but decided not to since i only drive my car once maybe twice a month. Got rid of my M3 and went back into another Z28 and i dont mind soo much my Z28 sitting there and drivng it twice a month but i wouldve with the Z06 with the higher payments you want to use it more often to get your money's worth.

    If I sold my GTO for 15.5k I would have 15.5k to go C5 shopping. For 10k extra I can get a nice Z06.... Or if I sell the GTO and my SUV I am going to get an H2 my local dealer has. I fell in love with that thing! Then just get a vette in another year when the H2 is paid off. I still have my 2 bikes and the ol' Taur-ass to drive......lol

    I like the LT1 nose better than the LS1 on the Camaro's, please dont flame me guys....lol

    Boy, you must be a good driver that drove on excellent tracks. Even after they were "fixed," stock '99 Cobras were hard-pressed to run a 13.5. I have owned '96 and '99 Cobras.

    And I thought 99GT's were only capable of 14.1 or so.

    The '99/01 Cobra's aren't as slow as people think. They should be a 13.7-13.8 car bone-stock with a good driver!

    Well i just got back from attempting to race my 94 Z and it was a disaster. My friend driving the 94 couldnt drive to save his life, flooring it in 5th gear then taking forever to get him side by side to even start the race. Finally i just called it off and said ill get another friend to drive my Z on a different day. I didnt think this was gonna be this difficult for him, since he drives a manual tranny to work everyday. Either way on a side note i got my Hooker exhuast and my cut out installed today after the failed race attempt and suprisingly its very quiet, did not notice any power gains ofcourse wont be enough to feel. But at idle its hardly noticable and lower rpms deep no rasp at all and higher rpms it screams but not annoying and deep, wow im very happy with the exhuast.

    Im gonna ask my other friend to drive my car, so pissed off at him for waisting my time. Ill do it sometime this week or next weekend, when i do ill post it up for sure sorry its taking long figured he can atleast drive it good since he drives a manual daily. To answer your question as to why i did not feel it, maybe because i was pissed on how today went and wasnt focusing on how the car feels but from driving it around town i really didnt feel any difference the throttle response could be a bit quicker but thats about it. The car absolutly sounds sick, just love it. The exhuast cut out and the Hooker muffler have really made the car more enjoyable to drive and the deep sound is just perfect for me. After this ill have to seriously consider LT's with ORY just a bit hesitant mainly because ive had a ton of bad luck with headers in the past.

    I had a 99 GT 5 speed and the best time I ever ran was 14.2 @ 98 bone stock. The cobras were not much faster; if I remember correctly People were getting pissed at ford because the Cobra was supposed to have 320 HP and some of them ended up with 300 HP

    An 03/04 Mach1 is rated at 305 hp and that thing makes the older Corbra's (prior to the 390hp version Teminators) look slow and they are only a mid 13 second car.

    In 2004 I watch an 04 5-speed GT run a smooth 15.1 @ 92mph with limited wheel spin and getting rubber in 2nd gear every time. I think it depends on what track your on and the altitude as much as anything.
