Default Black C6 Corvette

Had a fun little encounter with a C6 tonight.

Coming home from work I was all alone on the highway like normal at this hour. Then I saw saw headlights in my rear view that I thought looked familiar and potentially fun. Waited for him to come up and it was a very clean black C6 that sounded just as nice as it looked. Super dark tinted windows and black wheels to complete the murdered out look.

At first I couldnt get him to play so I took off a bit. That got him a little more interested but still not full committed. So I take the hit to get him to go, I let off slightly and then went as he went. Pulled away by a couple cars up to about 130 when we both shut down as the cross winds and random hard rain all of a sudden made it a little sketchy.

Rounded a corner and the rain stopped and the winds were with us so we went again. Honked it off this time and he pulled out a few cars to 140ish mph. Slowed back down again and went one more time. Same story but I was about 2-3 cars back by 140ish.

All 3 runs were from right about 60mph

Stopped to talk on an offramp and found out that on the first run he was in 4th as he didnt really take me to serious. Said that as I pulled away I definitely surprised him a bit. Thus he shifted to 3rd for the next two and handed me my ass.....


I believe he said the mods were intake, exhaust and tune and making right around the 400 mark at the wheels. My ricer excuse for the day is that im not on corn right now and in fact im on QT 91 so im even down from the 330ish whp that I made off corn last time on the rollers. Those that were at the dyno know I make about 40 more hp on corn and about 30 more tq.

Definitely some fun runs. Vette sounded great, curious to find out what exhaust setup it has.

Its funny how you had to entice the vette a few times in order to get it play, yet supposedly they will race a stock Honda Accord at the drop of a hat.

good runs!

Already have one picked out. Just need to sell my car and hope it doesnt sell before I do.

Would be fun to go right into another FI car.

Definitely.

Getting close to empty on this tank and will be putting corn in the next tank.

You pull more than a bus harder on the corn.


Plus I'd bet your car has another 10-15whp on the move vs. on the dyno when there is that much more air passing through that IC.
