Ok, I think I have an answer for this. Although I can't really find a MPG rating YET, I know the Lingenfelter Vettes Get at least 20mpg and run in the 9s. Here's a vid of a Lingenfelter breaking off a Blue Angel...

Now let me try to find some info proving that they get at least 20 mpg and still do the 1/4 at under 10 seconds.

Mine is sort of close, it runs mid-high 11's at Bandimere which is 5800' and gets roughly 25mph, but there isn't an onboard computer that would show mpg, I just have to figure it when I fill up. Although I don't think it would run 10's at sea level, it might be close.

Import vs domestic blah blah blah. They can both be great.

Now...This datsun has no body mods thus looking very stock. If this car rolled up on you on the street you would be none the wiser. This car drives to and from the track with ease. This is not the fastest car out there but i love the sleeper aspect of the car. When it idles you wouldnt know it was modded

Default z06 victory red

I own a 09 zo6 (victory red) thats not a z06 anymore.

First,thats not pump gas ,8's on pump gas ..come on.

second,my stock z06 motor is smooooth as glass at idle and it has a ton of power,no crazy cam,smoooth,boring smooth motor,its relaxed and doing everything with no heavy struggle. ... I do think a motor shop could get stock parts to do 8's ...good luck with the trans and rear axle,come on 8's ! ...its not a z06 anymore.

Cars quick for sure,not pump gas ...noway

I take it you've never heard of meth injection? Ok so it's KIND of like cheating since you have to add methanol to the mix but you could always go the E85 route which is straight outta the pump, thereby calling it pump gas

I actually got into an argument in another forum about the stock tranny/rear holding up.. They also say its not a Z06 anymore cause its automatic and they are using the Z06 name just so they can say they have the fastest street Z06.. I said you guys are idiots, learn the difference between a stock C6 and a C6 Z06.. Factor in the price it would cost to get a C6 to Z06 status and then see why its better to START with a Z06.. Then when you start popping $12k tranny/rears every pass see how fast you swap to an automatic at that level.. LoL There comes a point when you have to "upgrade" the parts.. Since Z06 trannies are like eggs to begin with it makes sense to swap to a built automatic.. Havent been in the vette scene since 2006 but Im going to assume they still dont make many upgrade parts for the 6 speed.. I know my friend's 800rwhp C5 popped 2 trannies/rears within 3 passes at the track which got him fed up since he didnt want to spend $20k going to a powerglide/9" rear setup (Car was built for 1500rwhp but was detuned to 800 for drivetrain issues)


Oh and heres a 2000hp pump gas motor.. Can we say lo 7 second ET's?

Ok so it had to be de-tuned a bit since its a "daily/weekend warrior" lol

Default Z06

For it to be a 8 second z06 its gotta start as a z06 ...or its just a base vette. ...its gotta start as a z06

I realy cant tell in the vid if its a real z06 or the base vette...but the z06 is MUCH ...MUCH wider then a base vette ...just for starters ! ...then theres 505 HP 427 ci motor in a z06

Like i said the motor is boring,no wild cam to give it a loppy idle ... just a smooooth rumble....the 427 is soooo detuned i think. its boring even .... they hit the11's stock and i dont think it would realy take much to get it down into the 9's ....A good 60 foot with slicks will get you into the low/mid 11's BUT YOU GOTTA START WITH A Z06
