Default 04 Z06 vs. 06 GTO

Ok so here is the deal. I have a guy with a automatic GTO wanting to run my Z06 for $500 Friday. The car has minor bolt ons such as intake, exhaust, etc. No internals. I ran his car stock on stock and walked on him pretty bad. I have a few things being done to my car right now just some bolt on stuff as well. I wanna know how yall think this will end up? Im pretty confident im gonna beat him but I want some opinoins on it.

What kind of race will this be? Dig roll etc. For $500 are you sure he only has bolt ons? Id say start the race at about 120, then that boat wont have a chance haha.

If you have comparable mods then as long as you don't miss a gear, plan on what you want to spend that $500 on...

We are going from a dig. I have drag radials so it hooks great out of the hole.

I think for 500 bucks he probably has a trick or two up his sleeve that or hes not too bright. You definitely have the weight advantage.

I'll bet he has a dry shot hidden somewhere. Maybe in the intake itself. I have been told there is a way to hook the nozzle inside of the intake so no one knows anything when they look at your motor. Just what I heard, never saw it personally.

Just went to the track a couple weeks ago with friends. Bone stock 06 auto GTO with 1100 miles on the clock ran 13.2 in 92deg Houston weather. Bonestock 03 Z06 was having trouble with traction and ran a 12.8. There were a couple Z06s with cams that weren't having trouble with traction and they were running low 12s

Yea well I ran some decent times at the track last weekend. Don't wanna post them because he might post on here. But if they run a 13.2 then he's gonna needs some luck.

Run him for fun and forget the $500 bet.

If he pushes for the 500 then you know he's hiding something.

Either way do it for fun and not the cash.

He definetely have something hiding here. You would have to be downright stupid and crazy to bet 500 dollars on that race. With all the bolt-ons, i seriously doubt a GTO will hit over 400rwhp,

What year is this GTO?

The kid aint the smartest thing on the block. He gets easily conviced by his friends that think they know whats going on. I mean he seriously thinks hes gonna pick up 150hp with bolt ons. The light bulb in his head must be burned out. Its a 06 GTO. He also has a friend with a 05 mustang with pullies saying that he beats corvettes all day long. Well I waxed that mustang just a week ago. So this is EASY money.
