stupid question maybe

i know this may sound stupid, and probably lots of you will laugh, but eh, just curious, i was out driving tonight, raced a couple of cars, then this Z4 pulls up to me wanting to race, but by that time cops were all over the place, so i backed off, ive never been in one let alone driven a z4, but how fast are those things, i think it was the 2.5 one, automatic i believe, just out of curiosity, what are the odds that my manual 325 with slight mods could have taken it, or at least kept up with it?

stock i think theyre about as fast as eachother. they have about the same hp and torque and weigh about the same. so i bet you would have slightly pulled on him depending on how you drove.

Acceleration (0-60 mph): 6.74 sec. Braking Distance (60-0 mph): 111.19 ft.
Base Number of Cylinders: 6 Base Engine Size: 2.5 liters
Base Engine Type: Inline 6 Horsepower: 184 hp
Max Horsepower: 6000 rpm Torque: 175 ft-lbs.
Max Torque: 3500 rpm Drive Type: RWD

A stock 325i:
Curb Weight: 3087 lbs.
Acceleration (0-60 mph): 7.8 sec. Base Number of Cylinders: 6

Horsepower: 189 hp Max Horsepower: 5900 rpm

7.8 must be for auto right, a manual 325 stock I thought would be really low 7's?

why is the 325's 0 to 60 so much slower? just because of diff and power band? with those wieght, hp and torque numbers id think the 0 to 60 would be closer?

i dont think a stock manual 325 could beat an auto 2.5 z4 even if you did every shift perfectly. all he has to do is stomp the pedal, and you know how fast and accurate autos shift. plus, the z4 is just faster . according to the stats rex posted anyway.

since yours has light mods though you may be able to keep up if you drove great
