It is a damn nice street car, curious what it makes on higher boost. I had those 69/73's on my car at one point, some people say they don't work but they worked fine for me and they seem to be working fine in this build.

Ultimate street car would be something with air filters.. Bare minimum, and possible a street duty pump

Rear facing turbos behind a fender seems fine to me, Iíve put thousands of miles on forward facing turbos without issue.

Magnafuel is fine for street, driven on it for hours across 4 states, to and from track, zero issues.

Whats next, cant use drag radials or slicks on the street?

The magnafuel is excellent for street use. It's loud which may bother some people, but it's fine for long drive times with no issues. That 4303 can't be the only pump though for that power level so I'm curious what the rest of the fuel system is.

I still think Mighty Mouse had the standard for fast and no compromising creature comforts of a real street car.

It's not the pro tuner 4303....

Its the dry motor pro efi 4703 pump.... Not rated for continuous even

Yep, that's a very nice ride. NicD has an awesome build going on right now too, mint condition low mile C6Z. Wonder if it's done, havent seen any updates.

I ran the 4703 as my only pump, its more then fine for street use. Makes some noise but generally the cars that need a large pump make enough noise to cover it up.

While that car was streetable and quick in a straight line I think the C6Z is better at everything. At least in my opinion the C6 has better looks, interior, handling, brakes, a lot lighter, and a manual!

I don't see many cars making 1200+ autox or road coursing so handling and brakes are less important. I thought MM had it manual and swapped over when he started going quick? I love c6z looks, no denying that.

I think the big thing here is MM built his car 11+ years ago? Really a different era we are in now. He is a legend and I'm aware of what he's done. Specifics on his car were a little more difficult to find because his name gets so many hits in a search. I personally like this c6z better and if it was an auto it would be perfect for my use "IF" indeed that pump or other issues don't limit it from being truly street friendly.

To be honest I almost bought the same color car, but a base C6 when I was looking and decided on my GTO I currently own. I planned to do exactly what I did to my GTO to the base C6. So I may be a little biased to a C6 over an fbody also.
