I'm going to say that on any lsx engine a 10% gain on CAI, TB, dyno tune and longtubes ITHOUT cats is significantly low. In fact I would have suspected just a tune alone (without touching boost) with GMs conservative tuning should have come close to netting those results.

No doubt this car will hit 650RWHP without touching the boost with the above mods.

As do I, but I'm sick of hearing them being compared to ferrari's, lambo's and other exotics.

All the comparisons are based on performance.

How can you not?

^ ofcourse, why blow money on an ENZO when u can go faster and have the same stopping power. The zr1 is truly a power house and the best bang for the buck. Period.

Yes it is faster or as fast as an Enzo but i am pretty sure on a track the enzo will kick its ass any day.
Plus no tools drive Enzos!

Barely, Enzo was only 1 second faster around Nurburging. The ZR1 can easily hold its own with the enzo on track.

Couldnt agree more. Enzo is a garage queen that no one tracks other than spiffy magazines. Zr1 is a beast on track and drives you home aswell.

Well i would like to see the average Joe try to post times in both. I bet its waaaay easier to lap on an enzo instead of the Vette. Still it is a nice car and i agree most Enzos are garage queens(there is a big reason why though as they do not depreciate).

not to mention the enzo has manual windows, no leather, no radio, no a/c. All of which come in the corvette!:P
