On my way back home from Orlando today I had a very fun and high speed incident with a 911 Turbo...check out the expression on the drivers face:D You can see the reflection of my EB Z and the Chromies in the Black paint.

We ran at speeds in excess of 140...my very kewl administrative assistant took these pics...she's on her 2nd M3 and loves high speed cars.

Btw, my new V1 works GREAAT!

The look on the guys face tells you the outcome.;) The 911 Turbo is no sloucher...my experience today reinforces Car & Drivers September comparison in which the Z06 came out on top. This guy did give me a run for my $$..he did not back off....although I was not going to challenge him in speed in excess of 145 and I truly believe he felt the same way. Fubu:cool:

Nice. He doesn't look too happy :)

Course, I wouldn't either had I found out the hard way that I spent 40k too much ;)

It's more like $80K more the 911 turbo over the Z06.

Les, how do you like those BPP step headers now that you have lived with them for a couple of months? Have put it back on the dyno yet? My headers should be in the shop this week and if my schedule permits I will come down the following week to do the install. I am leaning toward the headers & street x-pipe; eliminating the pre-cats and keeping the main cats in place.

I will let you know when I come down for sure!

You gotta love that open stretch of the turnpike.

Don, I love the set up...would do it all over again in a minute.

If I were you I would keep the main cats or go with the Hi-Flo Random Tech Cats..that maybe my next and last move...the '03 model is only 7 months away.

Most of my '02 Mods will be transfered over to my '03 Z06. Fubu/Les
