I Didnt see a thread about this race I think everyone will enjoy it..

Air filter/Tune 2011 C6 ZR1 made 535rwhp on Mustang dyno (around 560-570rwhp dynojet
Pulley/Tune/CAI 2013 GT500 somewhere between 650-700rwhp from what I've read at SVTPerformance

Enjoy

60-150mph

The GT500 impresses me. Zr1 is still the boss!

Saw this earlier. Reading the threading SVT makes me laugh. Matter of fact any video or kill story there where a mustang loses to a Chevy makes me laugh.

Jeeze a ZR-1 with a filter and tune only made 535? I was hopin they made more then that stock.
I hope chevy steps up and makes the camaro and vette more powerful then the gt500. I think that is a pipe dream though.
Oh well

Why would the guy in the GT500 run from 60-150? Might as well give the ZR1 the W. That's right in the ZR1's wheelhouse.

Read the thread. It was on a Mustang dyno. Tune only doesn't pull crazy numbers on a ZR1 like it does a '13 GT500. The GT500 in this race had a ~100whp advantage so I think the Corvette has enough power for now atleast.

Agreed. Although I think the GT500 would have its work cut out at any speed.

Around 3750 lbs.

I think the ZR1 is making more and the GT500 is making less than they said, there's about a 450lb difference between the two (~3400 on the ZR1 and ~3850 on the GT500). Going off the 535whp and 700whp numbers the GT500 would have about 0.86lbs less per HP than the ZR1.

Anyone know the aero drag on the new GT500? I know the ZR1 (0.36) sucks, not sure where the new GT500 stacks up.

Doesn't quite work that way with the GT500. As someone mentioned in the other thread, look at how the '13 GT500 compares to the C6Z06. 700lb difference with the GT500 making around 150whp more yet both cars run pretty much identical e.t.'s/traps and are a driver's race from a roll. GT500's are notorious for needing a good bit more power to run door to door with the vette.

The outcome of this run seems very realistic.

No way, that guy posts on our local forum. His dyno vid is also in that channels uploads check it out. The ZR1 driver is also a HELL of a driver. Comparing 2 different dyno results is pretty moot. He dyno'd that on a low reading dyno.


I will say though pretty badass for a $60k car vs $100k car. Still prefer the ZR1 alot more though.

To clear some things up...

We tuned the gt500. It made 680/722 on our superflow.
Its making 700 ft/lbs by 2800 rpm. I don't think the roll speed matters too much in this case, the torque curve (plateau?) is nuts. Had to roll into the throttle in 4th gear on the dyno to keep the tires from spinning...

I thought with the new GT500 taller gears 60mph in 2nd gears is the best spot for GT500 too !!

Found on another forum that the '13 GT500 was making 680rwhp and 722rwtq. It produced 700lbs-ft at 2800rpms :eek::eek:
