    If the drivers are equal the GTO. A GTO with those mods should be well over 600hp at the wheels, more than enough to make up for the weight differential IMO.

    Last I checked, the ZR1 was putting out around 638 hp at 6500 rpm, and 604 ft lbs of tq at 3800 rpm. 1/4 mile around 11.2 seconds or so at 130+ mph. It would be a decent race, but I'd give the win to the Vette still. Plus, no info on how much boost either is running - so as is usually said - Run 'em and find out!

    IDK guys those are crank numbers for the ZR1 but it's a 10 second car with tires there is no denying that. I just figure a stock ls2 with a maggie will run mid 11s, stroke it, add a cam, heads, good tune that should be good for at least low 10s with traction. Both will have issues with traction so it's probably a drivers race.

    ZR1 will have the better suspension and be able to launch and hold the power better. The Vette by four car lenghts.

    lol I like the ZR1 myself, but I thought just maybe with an extra 123WHP the goat might stand a chance?

    It seems like the general consensus is it's a driver's race? or... the Blue Devil by a bus.

    Even if the gto was putting out 700 at the crank Id still go with the zr1. That extra hp in the gto is just compensating for the extra weight.
