Normally I don't post kills even though I've had a few ranging from Braubus badged Benz's to Porsche Carreras.
Well myself and gm4life were driving to my tuner on Sunday when a very nice looking C6 pulls onto the freeway right in front of us. I was like cool I may finally get a chance to run a C6. When I saw his after market exhaust tips I said to myself, "If that thing is heavily modded I'm gonna get killed". So I downshift to 4th hoping he would bite and he did. He hit it first and I slammed it and started pulling on him pretty quickly. By the time I got to his door my overspeed chime starting telling my testosterone flexxing butt that I needed to slow down a bit. Yeah whatever! My ego was more important than that stupid little chime.
By the time I let off, due to traffic ahead, I was about 2 car lengths ahead and still pulling away pretty easily. When I slowed down the guy in the Vette (looked like he was in his early 50s) caught up and gave me a big sh!t eating smile and a thumbs up as he was looking at my ride. I returned the favor and slowed back down as I tried to control that damn shaking in my right leg (if you've raced, you know what I'm talking about). Now mind you I am by no means stock. Before that run I was at 513/501 to the wheels with leaking intake gaskets. After I fixed the gaskets I had no idea what the power output was but I know that the car was running a bit richer.
Anyway, I though I'd share that with you guys.
Oh by the way, after the tuning I'm at 516/500 to the wheels with less timing than the previous power output, constant 8 psi of boost at wide open throttle and the A/F ratio is at 11.8:1 with absolutely no knock retard throughout the entire rpm range. It's a very safe tune so I'm very pleased to know that I have more on the table if I start to feeling underpowered.
