Rachel and I just ran to taco bell and "Forget you" was playing on the radio. I tend to make up my own version for every song so I changed it to...

Yeah Im sorry, I cant afford a ferrari
But my Z06 can get you there

Then I added "faster" to the end of it and she was like Yea Right Baby, You Wish! So now I am showing her youtube videos of Z06's vs Ferrari's and Lambo's. She is like wow, I didnt realize it was that fast. Its funny that Ive cracked it open pretty good with her in the car and she never said about it being fast. But now that she sees a video of it beating a Lambo, suddenly its fast to her now. Girls!

Haha yeah they don't understand until you compare it to something else side by side. If you ever decide to supercharge or turbo that thing not very many street driven vehicles will ever be a challenge.

Yea I thought about it but the problem with boosting a LS7 is its a 427 small block so the cyl walls are thin. Plus the CR is 11:1. There are people running 10-12psi of boost with no issues but most people say 7psi is pushing it without being forged.

Heads and Cam is the best bang for the buck for that car. If I did the heads I would get another 30-40RWHP. With my mods I should pick up at least 100RWHP.

Vararam intake- $350
Kooks Headers/X- $1075 (Used)
Cam/springs/pushrods- $360
Cam/Header install plus tune- $850

So I will have just over $2600 in everything.

The technician just called me and said he drove the car to his house because he didnt want it to be at JJ Auto and take a chance of it getting bumped. I think he just wanted to drive it more. lol

Once Jeremy Formatto does some adjustments to the tuning it will be good to go. I am picking it up Saturday. He said, "I dont know what your plans are for this car and if you will want more power down the road but this thing is a monster." :party18:

Ok this car is FAST! I love the new power just need some tires that dont spin as soon as I hit the throttle.

Only bad thing is I got a speeding ticked 15 min after I left the shop. lol 66 in a 40 and to top it off it was in a construction zone. Cop was nice but was in his car for like 15 min and I'm thinking Im going to have about 4 points on my liscence and the fine is going to be outragous since its in a construction zone. The cop comes back and tells me that fines are double in a construction zone but he didnt mark it down for that and he kicked it down to a lesser offense and my fine was only $110 and no points. I was so happy when he told me I almost gave him a hand job. :llooll:

Oh yea and if my neighbors didnt hate me already because of my bike.....well this thing has a nice lope to it that already had Rachel complaining because she was in the 3rd fl bathroom and she could feel it shaking the house while I was parked outside. 😀

I love to hear you like it buddy. Cant wait to take some videos of you burning the tires, doing some donuts and just wasting them before the new set. When you install the black chrome, maybe we can take our wheels down to the powdercoating place at the same time.. Possibly get a deal?

I am officially in the 500 club. Car put down 513RWHP and 460TQ.

They hooked a bung up to it and it was running pretty rich. There is some power left in the car once I get a real tune vs a email tune.
