    • Tuned E60 M5 versus W211 E55 AMG with exhaust and stock C6 Z06 from a roll

      Great run videos here from BimmerBoost member TZ04XJR. He has the E60 M5 which is the camera car in the videos and his modifications consist of an Evolve R-Tune, RPI Intake, and a muffler delete. The E55 AMG has an exhaust which is not named and the C6 Z06 is completely stock. The M5 makes fairly easy work of the E55 AMG which is to be expected of a car that just has the exhaust versus a tuned M5 which shows its strength from a roll even when the E55 gets the jump.


      The Z06 though easily dispatches the M5. This is to be expected for the much lighter Z06 which even stock will be putting out similar power to the rear wheels. Even with headers and a full exhaust the M5 would have trouble. The Z06 is simply a beast.

      Great runs, thank you to @TZ04XJR .

        Great runs once again. Always nice to see how one's car stacks up against another, regardless of win or lose.

        With the C6Z, you should have challenged the driver to see who can have the quickest run from 60-130....with 4 passengers in each car...hahaha Click here to enlarge

        I'm all about the fun in these runs.. Some people get all up tight about taking losses, I could care less. We were going to do a dig run on the empty road but it started sprinkling out. I for sure would have used my launch control Click here to enlarge

        Yes I do have an advantage of a spacious back seat and a trunk that holds 4 sets of golf clubs Click here to enlarge

        Thanks, that's how I like em!

        My passenger doesn't know all the ends and outs of car performance. He said after the first C6 run "wow I thought you were going to take him" I replied.. "Hell no, that's what happens when you run a C6 Z06 with a good driver". Lol

        Haha thanks! I tried to get another run out of him but he declined.. I'll try to get a dig run out of him when I get back in town in a couple weeks. I'll for sure use launch control on him. Click here to enlarge

        How I love seeing BimmerBoost.com watermarks in videos.

        If it makes you feel better I got beat by a C6 Z06 in a similar manner on the highway when NA. Made me want boost instantly.

        Lol I've gotta spread the word about my favorite "true" performance car enthusiast site. Click here to enlarge

        The Z06 was exactly what I expected. I wish it didn't start sprinkling or we would have done a dig on the open highway 0-150 mph. I've got my launch control down so It might have been interesting. Click here to enlarge

        Unless the stock F10 M5 is trapping 128+ mph, it's getting pulled too.
