    • Gintani Stage 2+ supercharged E92 M3 takes on a bolt on C6 Z06

      The C6 Z06 is a very fast car in stock form. It is lightweight with a big motor that also revs for a strong top end. A Stage 2+ Gintani supercharged M3 with meth injection will put out close to the 600 wheel horsepower range depending on the transmission making for a very strong top end car. The Z06 has a fast intake, tune, and longtube headers along with no cats. The M3 is making more power and has the quicker shifting transmission although the Z06 is lighter with more torque down low.

      In the first race the Z06 loses traction. The M3 is in the wrong gear for the second race going to show that even if one has a lot of power high in the rev range a mistake like this means game over. The third race is a clean run with the M3 pulling up top. Check out the video below.

        Zo6 would've lost either way methinks, but did you hear his shifts...talk about horrible.

        I'll take the Z06 any day of the week over the M3, only the 2011+ model but that's just me. The z06 can be made to go faster than a SC m3 in N/A form, which is incredibly awesome IMO, and even a ZR1. Cool race though, that Z06 sounds beastly.

        the vettes are a benchmark, much like the M3, everything gets compared to them (for different reasons)

        but the majority of both are not modified, and most of the ones that are, are just basic intake/exhaust. So to me, to have every benefit of the M3, over a vette, and have the option to still compete, even beat a few, is a major plus to me (regardless of which S/C one may choose)

        im not by any means "wealthy", and money IS a factor, but if all that means is i have to put more effort in to get what i want, then so be it

        Your looks are wrong. The zo6 is one of the sexiest cars out. Feeling are for women, on a track that zo6 will mop up an m3

        These are subjective points regarding looks and feel. Performance wise, this m3 has nothing to worry about.

        The z06 will definitely destroy the m3 at the track, specially the 2011+ with the zr1 suspension. The m3 just has no chance. Look at the Nurburgring times. I would probably pick the m3 though with a built motor and a stage 3 SC if I has the choice, as I think it's the better overall car (4 seats n more comfortable). With no stage 3 SC, then the z06 all the way.

        honest opinion, but have you driven either, z06 or s/c m3?
