    Lol this is getting stupid guys. And to think the Z06 is untouchable is ridiculous. There is nothing magic about the Z06. Its a somewhat light car with large contact patches and a fair amount of horsepower....

    Anyway I didn't want to bring the topic off. I'm saying this kit would allow a N54 to be in that "league" of acceleration. To think otherwise is being close minded.....

    So you are telling me a 1M could run a 7:22 on the ring, which is what the Z06 ran, having the same or a little more power to the wheels? The 1M ran an 8:15 - THAT IS A HUGE!!! difference my man, a power increase won't do that much, you are going to have to change a whole lot of things in that 1M's suspension......

    League of accelerations would be absolutely correct.....

    7:22 by a E46 M3 CSL.

    It's not that far-fetched. I never said it would be "easy", although with enough money, it would be relatively easy in my eyes to get a kick-ass track car from the 1M.

    Especially with the power levels that are starting to be made. And there is still plenty of room for improvement in the N54 turbo-kit "scene".

    LOL no dude, I'm not saying that. Of COURSE the 1M would need suspension mods! I mean, the 1M comes with 245/30R19 and 265/35R19 Pilot Sport 2s from the Factory. It's fairly high of the ground to make it nice for DD/ The Z06 Comes with like 285s and 325s Pilot Super Sports or something ridiculously wide like that. You have to dodge almost everything because of the ride height. And who really knows what compound they used to set that ring time? Plus it is 2-seat and very track-focused suspension!

    Let's keep it simple, 470-580whp would put a 1M OR 335i in the same or greater acceleration "league" as a stock Z06 in a straight line.

    And you'll have spent thousands and thousands. Just so you can say your BMW can keep up with a stock Z06 in a straight line... and then the Z06 driver buys 1 mod.

    Nobody is saying that a fully modded out BMW can't keep up with a stock Z06, but a modded Z06 will make most BMWs his $#@!. I have driven one. We're not even close to the raw power of that car.

    I guess the same thing could be said for the GTR vs ZO6....just playing devils advocate.

    Well there isn't much to talk about now is there? I mean did HPF say that they're going back to the drawing board so nothing new will be coming for a while now? Time for the Cricket band to show up and start the music.

    They had issues with 02 sensor placement. Since they were both placed post-turbo the two cylinder banks were fighting each other and they could not get a stable A/F ratio. They are either going to build a new manifold or come up with a different solution.

    Hmm, pretty bad marketing to announce a price and then find out the product isn't working. But I hope they will keep this back on track and I'm looking forward to see how it stacks up against Shiv's kit.

    No, they were pre-turbo, because I knew that the banks had to be separate Click here to enlarge

    This.... Z06 does a H/C and its game over. Add a 100 shot, and you probably can put a couple Greyhounds on a single turbo 335i in a gear or two.

    Dude, if you realized how harassed they were on e90post for pricing you wouldn't say that Click here to enlarge you wouldn't believe how impatient some of the members there are, especially those that will NEVER $#@!ing buy it...the guys that are actually thinking and have the money are sitting on the sidelines waiting to see gains, power under the curve, overall tuning approaches, etc etc...

    I agree, the Z06 is beast. Even the Grand Sport with the right mods. We had one around 640whp with a centrifugal supercharger and methanol injection while in Orlando, Florida. LOL this thing would try to do simulated 1/4 mile and for the first 8 seconds you would see and feel rubber chunks falling from the sky!
