Pete, Dyno Dave Z., Herb and the rest of the SRT engineers delivered a very impressive power plant!
Great numbers Finally some competition!

No offense Chuck but I think this one belongs in Off Topic. Has nothing directly too do with a Z06. Or are you comparing the hp of a viper to the hp of the Z? If so you should have stated that in the title somehow.

OT or whatever -- I agree that the site is slow but the car put down some impressive numbers.

thats a whole lot of spuds for brand spanking new, and not alot of drive loss for a supposedly 600 crank rated power plant. Nice

Makes sense. I always said the Viper needs about 80hp more than the Z06 to be as fast. Nice numbers.
