    Need your opinions

    I am thinking about getting a 2008 Z06 (black with red bolsters of course) and selling my 2003 M3 SMG Dinan. There is a stage II turbo kit (using methanol) made by HPF (Horse Pwoer Freaks) that produces 530rwhp on pump gas and 650rwhp on race fuel. They claim it will beat a stock Z06 in the 1/8th or 1/4. check out this video: and tell me what you think? Thanks guys.

    I think that c-5 need a better driver and a tune.... when the horn blows 3x he should already be in the next lower gear and just below the powerband, things might look different. Pro-video, amatuer race driver. The bmw runs good, the lexus V8 should not be under-estimated tho, those spray-hungry mo-fos

    As much of a DIEHARD "M vehicle" fan as I am, the C6 Z06 is one (of few) cars I would rather have over an E92 M3 or E60 M5.

    The current Z06's are just nasty.

    EDIT: Although this would make my decision harder

    Keep me in the loop because I am shopping now. In two weeks I will have probably made up my mind and bought something.

    That E92 M3 is not in the same league as the HPF StageII M3! The HPF car would be doing about 150mph at this point, rather than 80mph.... unless I am viewing this run in the wrong light. It is making a lot of noise, but it doesn't seem to be going anywhere quick. Please tell me I am wrong. Check this out: . This video is the Stage I system, and I am stalking about the StageII system which uses methanol.

    Buy a Z06, and with the money you would save over buying a M5, send it to Katech. Take both a Z06 and M5 to the track and it is clear which comes out on top.

    Z06 w/ heads cam intake and long tubes on a 150 shot should should dominate whatever that M3 can throw at it.... the motor is built for power... there is only so much that M will take before it says see ya and leaves ya with a 35K paperweight

    This is a 10.7 second run. Low 13 second Camaro in the other lane for comparrison
