Hello! New member...

Greetings and salutations, allow me to introduce myself. I'm driving a black 2013 ZL1 M6 coupe. I joined the forum to learn more about the car and how to get the most out of it and maintain it properly. There seems to be a great deal of knowledge on this forum, regarding OEM and aftermarket for these cars. I am looking forward to learning everything I can here, "standing on the shoulders of giants". I plan to moderately modify it to the 700-750whp range. The car's main purpose is just to be a generally badazz street car which is a blast to drive and turns heads. Of course, it already is all of those things, but I need more!

Welcome to the forum!

700whp is nicely achievable, look forward to seeing you build it. We'll be here to help.

Great year, great looking car. I share the same HP goals. Currently talking to several vendors on this forum. I am just on the fence regarding the cam-going that deep into it is a bit intimidating to me.

Headers HF cats or no cats/CAI/pulley/injector/tune should get you very close?

Welcome!

Welcome!
Headers, Intake, Aggressive Pulleys, and a Tune will not get you close. That's more like 600-630 RWHP. The LSA tops out at around 620 rwhp (Obviously all dynos read a bit different but its close enough) on the stock cam and you're going to need a cam to open them valves up more. Now you could go crazy with the supporting mods like Porting the blower/snout, 5" intake, 2.5" + 8.6"/9.1" pulleys, E85/Meth, and other stuff and that certainly will start to get you closer. But if you want to hit 700 RWHP or more, you'll need a cam and E85 or meth. Bolt ons/Cam/93 isn't enough to 700+ RWHP either. You need some kind of a booster to help the car out. Heads/Porting/E85/Meth etc.

Congrats on the car.

The car looks like my old car and I live in Tampa. What is the last 3 digits of the VIN? My car was 214.

Stock M6 can be up to 530 rwhp, mods I suggested can net 125, 655 rwhp is "close" IMO.
