I think a respectable showing for a stock C7Z...the ZR-1 didnt really start to pull until about 100mph from the angle i saw. CAI and Exhaust is probably a good 50hp or more...Probably pretty even stock for stock = not bad!

Not suprised at all..... the ZR-1 is a lot lighter, and a lot more aero dynamic. It didn't really start pulling the Z until about 120.... seems right!

In 2013 only a few people bought ZR1's what happened now everyone has over 100k for a ZO6. They missed out on the best C6.

The aero on the ZR is designed to be good at a track, but also not create a lot of drag in a straight line. Good win for the ZR1!

Maybe 50 hp on a C7 Z06, but on an otherwise stock ZR1 you would be lucky to get 20hp from a CAI and cat back. Cat back is for sound.

"If you are interested in this first system, it is for sale. Tuning will be required. email me [email protected] Pricing is $1,695.00 for the Beehive Heat Shield (cut to the ZR1 bridge, the bridge, and K&N Filter."

So is this ZR-1 tuned as well? CAI, Exhaust and Tune? Not flaming, just curious...

That post is from 4 years ago and was posted simply to convey that a CAI on a ZR1 is only worth 15-20hp, NOT 50 as you can get in a C7Z06....it has nothing to do with the specific car in question.

You would have to ask the OP or the owner of the ZR1 in the video about a tune.

Would have been much different from a dig. Good win for the ZR-1 but what else would you expect from a lighter car with the same (or more) hp? The driver of the C7 didn't do himself any favors.

Good race.
