Default ZR1 goes 10.03@141.50mph with simple bolt ons!

This car is a beast and has a bottom end built like a tank, this is with only a few bolt ons, can't wait to see someone upgrade the blower or even the exhaust/heads/cam on one of these things. With only a pulley, air filter, ported throttle body, intercooler upgrade and slicks almost runs a 9!!!!

This is the second thread I've seen in the last two days that I've seen a thread that boasts "minimal modifications". The term minimal is being tossed around ambiguously. Minimal mods is like an air filter and a downpipe not 10 modifications to the vehicle. Fast car nonetheless.

That torque curve looks like it would liquefy your internal organs between 1500 and 2000 RPM. God help us all.

I dunno, it tapers off pretty bad after 5000rpm, almost 100ft/lb by redline...

This car has a bolt on pulley, swapped air filter, bolt on intercooler, bolted on ported throttle body, and bolted on wheels/tires. The mod list only looks long b/c they include EVERYTHING with no vague statements like "turbo modification" used in the GTR thread.

If that isn't minimal I don't know what is, changing a downpipe is a hell of a lot more work than any of those modifications.

People switch between track tires and street tires all the time, no difference.

Rinse the sand from your crotch and lower your mini-skirt. Its not a "stab", its a point blank statement. I don't care what you say...that isn't "minimal". I also don't care how "simple" these mods are. The fact remains there are quite a few. And besides...is this your car? Of course not, its someone else's car that you stumbled across while whoring it up on Youtube. I'm not sure why you're so up in arms over a car that's not even yours.

Compared to the GTR 'minimal mods' thread - this is TRULY minimal mods!

pulley upgrade, air intake, intercooler and tuning = GTR Killer! lol

The point is that all the parts are simple bolt ons and it is completely badass. You don't even have to put the car on a lift, this could be down without jacking the car up or even laying the ground.

Why is everyone getting all butthurt over the appropriate use of the word "minimal" when referring to car modifications? Hell, neither of the posts in question are even about Subarus, get over it.

air filter, puller, balancer, inlet, throttle body, wheels, and intercooler.

I, for one, would definitely consider these mods minimal... Especially with the power it's now making.

I would also consider a stage 2 wrx minimal... The labor to install the turboback, filter, and tune is probably the same if not a shorter length of time for the zr1's mods.

I would say that the mods are pretty minimal as far as LSX stuff goes. As far as driving it goes, I don't think it would be an issue to drive it most anywhere. Heck, I drove a 72 Nova on slicks with a fuel cell, no interior other than a race seat and a ratchet shifter back and forth to the drag strip for over two years.

Interesting......

One night I was running my car at Bandimere there was a new ZR1 running... now I'm wondering what the deal was because it was absolutely pathetic. Best ET was in the high 12's (spinning bad on launch), but even more shocking was he was only trapping in the 11-115 area and he made every shift from what I could tell. It didn't run anything like the car in this thread!

Those mods are not minimal, but regardless, that is an effing fast car!!!! with an effing huge price tag...

Lots of bad drivers out there, kind of like how stage 2 STi's only run high 12s or low 13s or worse

Yea that has to obviously be most of the issue I agree.. between that an altitude I guess. Maybe he was going easy on it- kind of an expensive ride to drive into the wall ya know.

Because we're no longer talking about Subarus, and we're just mouthing off about different cars...if you truely want to go fast pick up a used Gallardo ($100k) and hook up with the guys at Underground Racing in NC. They offer a turbo kit which will get you in the mid 9's at 160+mph. Poops on the GTR and poops on this ZR1. WHAT?!
