    Which do think would be faster? F-Body SC or C5 Z06

    I just wondering if anyone has any experience with the rwhp of these two. Plus, how much more hp would you need or weight reduction to even them out? I know basically a F-Body can safely and easy put down 445rwhp with 441lbtq. I think that a lot more than a C5 Z06 has stock. Does anyone know? I'm thinking that a stock C6 Z06 doesn't put down much more than that. I'm guessing 15% drivetrain loss. So.... 505-61=444rwhp not sure what the tq would be though. Vette weight is 3180 / Bird weight 3450 without the spare tire. So, that 300lbs would probably mean I'd have to boost the HP by 10% to even them out. Or about 50HP. Do you guys think that simple math works? Do you think a simple meth injection system and retune would get me there? If that was the case I'd have a <$25K* car that would perform like a >$50K car.

    Unfortunately, my '67 Camaro with the 454 will still kill them both. The only problem there is it only get 6mpg on the freeway and I only have a 5-6 gal tank. That is a $20K car. Can't really use it as a daily driver. If I take a extra jerry can I can double my distance though. Lol.... That's where the Vette and the Bird beat all 28-30mpg on the freeway and 500HP. You just can't beat that combo.

    *I've also upgraded the suspension to take 1g in that figure.

    No.. you'd have an $10,000.00 that performs like a faster $10k car..

    No need for long form math.. Turn up the boost.
