1996 Chevrolet Beretta Z26 (The Z)

Last updated Nov 14, 2006  

Photo of a 1996 Chevrolet Beretta Z26 (The Z)


The second car I owned. I actually looked for one for about a year and a half before I purchased this one. My dad found it out of state and surprise me with it early one morning when I went into the garage to leave for school. (I still payed for the car though) Since then I have been continually adding to my list of mods. Everything done to my car has been done by me personally. I do not take my cars to shops to have things done. What'would be the pride in that anyways?


These numbers are estimates and are probably low. After I get my tuning software I will dyno the car. So that should be in the summer of 2007.


This car ran a 15.35 in the quarter mile when it had the 3.1L (3100 SFI V6 160 factory HP) engine, it now has a 3.4L (3400 SFI V6 180 factory HP) engine. There are other Berettas with similar setups and have been running mid to low 14s. With the DHP software I'm goin to go out on a limb and say that I should hit a flat 14 N/A maybe even break into the 13s. No one with a DHP 3400 has been to the track or to a dyno as far as I know so far. So I'm hoping to be the first to get real numbers put down.
