So here's the question: Would I get my ass kicked by an '89 Corvette?
A guy I know purchased an '89 corvette that has a nice body but needed to have the engine & Tranny rebuilt. He & his mechanic worked on it over the winter in their spare time. It's all put together now & ready to roll. As far as I know they didn't do any speed mods so I assume it is more/less stock.
I have had a LOT of maintenance work done on my car but have not done all that much in the way of speed mods. Here are the speed mods I have done though:
ZZP Downpipe to eliminate U bend.
I have a ZZP front PLOG that will be getting installed very soon (I hope).
Flipped the rubber bushings 90* inside the dog bone mounts.
K&N air filter dropped into my stock air box.
Not a speed mod but I have changed the snout oil twice within the last 25K mi.
So after my front PLOG is installed would I stand a chance against his 'vette? Or will he blow my doors off? OR close race?
To me my car seems REALLY fast but that's just relative to other cars I have driven...none of which were muscle machines. I'm hoping that the new PLOG, will gain me almost as much extra HP as I got out of installing the downpipe. The downpipe made a NOTICABLE difference.
You may wonder why I don't just ask him to race to find out for myself. Well,......he's kind of a conceited know-it-all and I know he is gonna scoff & laugh at me for even suggesting that we should race so if I'm gonna get my ass kicked then I would rather just keep my mouth shut & not suggest any races.
