It won't even be close, you would get destroyed. There is a few other tiny details that you are forgetting about that will make the Z/28 a vastly superior platform: MR shocks, huge rubber, better cooling, more aggressive bodywork, awesome CTS-V brakes, and an intact GM Warranty.

But, by all means, keep modding those SS's of yours (and see if you can match the list above and come in under $50K), meanwhile the guys who buy Z/28s will mod them as well, and basically have supercar performance at that point.
How true. At the end of the day, you will still have a everyday SS. The Z in on another level.

As a owner of a modified CTS-V, it doesnt take much to make 700hp on a LSA equipped car. A 9.5 pulley and full exhaust for around 3k is a bargain
