Only 505 Hp for Starters

I just picked up my first Corvette this week. I decided the ZO6 C6 was the only way to go after driving one. I'm about to turn 29 and I decided I'm not getting any younger. I want to be able to enjoy it now, and race it a little. It's stock at the moment except for a Halltech cold air, but I'm sure full exhaust with a cam kit are in the near future. I also own a 94 Z28 drag car with 561rwhp ,10.07@ 135mph, and a 97 WS6 TransAm daily driver, with a LS1 swap that made 507rwhp. I'm looking forward to modding the ZO6 a little. It drives and rides so much better than a F-body. I almost don't want to touch it but as any gear head knows, you can't have a stock car, it's never fast enough.

Anyways , I'm new to the site. I stumbled across it while searching for a catch can install.

Here are a couple pics of my 06 ZO6

Great looking car! But then I'm a bit partial to Lemans Blue.

Re: Only 505 Hp for Starters

Hey great car and beautiful color. I think I am starting to sound like a broken record, because we had another individual in his late 20's join last week, but you are the same age I was when I got my first Z. It is great to get started on Vette's in your 20's. Great to have you aboard.
