Anybody ever raced a newer Z24 with a 2.4? The way i see it, i think a 3.1 would have a slight edge on the 2.4L. Although the 2.4 has 10 HP more than the 3.1, there's quite a bit more torque in a 3.1L . I don't know, i was just wondering, i never raced a newer Z24 so...

This has been discussed before, but basically the way it happens is, you will get the 2.4L off the line, but it will start pulling on you and take the lead shortly after that.

well, to shed some truth on this topic, i raced a 97 Z24 5spd w/intake and he got a 16.278 to my 16.296. (mine is a 93 3.1 auto w/intake, chip, and 160 stat) that was not my best run (16.089 best)of the night or his, but depending on the driver, they can be beaten, but don't count on it cause they do have a lot more top end.
