for the power they make their numbers aren't very impressive for straight line runs... I think you'll take him. Have you run against any 05-06 stang Gt's? How have you faired? if you can beat a stang GT in a 1/4 you can beat a 350z.

One of my friends did 14.0 in his bone stock 350z. I personally think you will beat him, but I also think it will be close. Just drive to perfection and I'm sure you'll be good.

i think it will be close also but if you are as good as you say and looking at what you have, you should get him by a little

lol, my dad would flip out hard if he found out I was at the track running quarter mile times in my SVT. Even if it's not even cosigned for!

Eh..anyways, to answer your question, I think you'll take him.

The 350Z is quick, but it's not lightning fast. I have a good friend with one and he took me cruising. I have been in faster 4 cylindar cars before. You're boosted and by that time you'll be with header you say?

In the words of the mighty Dom:

"SMOKE HIM"

I think you will win if you do everything right, but not by much.

dang people.....my dad ran 11.9 at the track.....his goal is to get kicked out for running 11.5 and NOT having a rollcage.... I have video of my dad racing people with me in the passenger seat........

I'd say you have him........you have lighter weight over it, but like it was said, watch your launch.......practice that......
