350z vs 6.0

Well i have to ask...i'm pretty sure i should know the answer but just to see some thoughts.

2003 Nissan 350z Track Edition. Cold Air Intake. Otherwise Stock

VS

2006 F350. Studded, S&B, Looney Wild, 4" MBRP Straight, umm I think thats it.

What will be the outcome?

We ran once yesterday real quick. I let him jump off the line. (it's a manual so i thought i'd be nice) When i launched i jumped out by him about a truck and was able to pull in front of him in the right lane and stayed about a truck and half ahead until about 80 he was right there. That was with just the daily looney tune. I'm sure he will smoke me in the 1/4. Just wanted to know everyones thoughts. I will post a vid for all to see when we do run

i think the 6.0 might take it depending on driver and cab configuration 4wd or 2wd? my buddy(don't know if i should call him buddy more or less my neighbor that steals my tools and never returns them) has a 350z 6 speed manual with exhaust and intake and pcm tuning best time with 100% traction runs a 13.7 so if it was me or my truck i would throw a franklin on it.

It would be a low 13 sec car on a very good day and a well prepped track with DRs. I ran a 14.3 in my stock 6 spd Z. If your buddy is a good driver it might be in the high 13s. I think it would be a pretty close race.

Remember that this is a first gen 350Z so it doesn't have the power the newer ones have.

I have a 03 g35 sedan with nothing more done to it than a 3" stainless cat back and most tuned 6.0s will rape me from a dig.. From a 30-40 mph roll I can usually pull on them slightly or at least hang door to door. I sure a truck with a good custom tune and some other goodies should be able to handle one pretty good

I'm hoping it will be close...i will do a 4wd launch just to get that extra little bit on him....hopefully he won't be able to run me down. We should run this weekend so i'll be sure to post a vid...i think he will get me myself...we will see

Re: 350z vs 6.0

I dont know, my cousin has a 2006 Z and his car feels a lot faster than my truck. He does have a light weight flywheel, dual friction clutch and some plenum spacer thing with a borla exhaust. I'm very interested in seeing the outcome of this.

My RAZR made me send this...

Yeah it seems really fast...i mean the Z only weighs 3200 lbs and is pushing right at 290hp. Should run a 0-60 in 6 sec or less. I weigh 3 times that much and i'm probably only pushing 375hp or so maybe not even that. I feel like he's just going to walk away at 80+...i do have one big advantage though. I'm in the
