Chevy Vs. Nissan, Corvette Vs. GT-R

Can a Big Turbo Corvette Take On a Highly Modified GT-R?

As you would expect, both cars represent very different ways of making big power. The Corvette is equipped with an LSX 427 (7.0-liter) OHV V-8 and a 98 mm single turbo, which sticks out like a satellite dish. You literally cannot put a hood because of how big the turbocharger is. Jason – the owner of the car – says the “Vette” makes 1,700 horsepower at 21 pounds of boost. For this drag race, the power has been turned down to 1,500.

On a prepped surface Jason runs 30 psi, which is good for around 2,000 horsepower.

The gearbox of choice is a two-speed power-glide. The car weighs 3,300 pounds (1,497 kg) without the driver, but today it has 300 pounds worth of ballast in the rear for extra traction.

In the other corner, we have a Nissan GT-R named Kimbo. The car is known for blowing an intake manifold in the past, at the GT-R World Cup, but it’s all sorted out now. The VR38DETT engine has been enlarged from 3.8 to 4.1 liters thanks to a stroker crank.

It retains the stock six-speed DCT gearbox, although it has been built to handle the 2,000 horsepower the car now makes.

It also has a lot of carbon-fiber and fiberglass components and weighs around 3,500 pounds (1,588 kg) with the driver inside. The car also has all-wheel drive although it’s rear-wheel-biased, so it will definitely have the advantage off the line.

The GT-R is supposedly tuned down a bit, although the driver doesn’t say by how much. The Corvette is down on power, but its big block should mean more engine torque. Both cars weigh about the same, but the GT-R’s all-wheel-drive and quick-shifting DCT gearbox are tough to beat.

It’s the best out of three races and the first one is a head-to-head 500-foot drag between the two. The Corvette actually has a better reaction time, which allows it to take the lead, but the GT-R quickly catches up and takes the win with ease.

The second race was exactly the same – 500 feet, heads up, but the Corvette “gets the head” (this time intentionally). It seems both cars struggle for traction, but the end result is another win for Godzilla. The GT-R wins by about three and a half car lengths.

For the sake of entertainment, the drivers decided to do a third bonus race. This time, the Corvette gets two car lengths. Check out the video above if you want to see how that goes. Also, which car would you take for a drive if you get the chance?
