I've been running this setup on my stock motor for ~15K miles and not a problem so far (knock on wood).. If your goal is to just beat a stock viper that can easily be done with a 30R/35R setup.. If you wanna destroy one just add meth/race gas tune.. If i were you i';d run it on the stock block till it lets go, it's free mileage and it can last for a long time if you have a good tune.. a twin turbo vette on the other hand, isnt gonna happen.. Those things can make 1000whp all day..
Beat it how? I dunno if I buy it man. How much HP/ Torque are you putting down with pump gas and a GT30? I mean the STi weighs damn near what the Vette & Viper do, and you have to consider all the power under the curve they are making. The gear ratios alone in the z06 (and viper) will leave you looking for 5th (in the 1/4 mile) while he is most likely only in 3rd. Also, unless they REALLY can't drive, their traps should be 125 or higher in the 1/4 mile and they will keep screaming all the way to top speed! lol
