people are putting it in the 11's with a tune, pulley, and air filter.

Some have it in the 10's with a little more

this also crossed my mind, but then when I think about it, I say, well, it's not a V6 or even an SS. It's something special. Sure there are too many mustangs on the road also, but not shelbys. My manager's been driving around his boss's ZL1 for a good two weeks now, and it's an amazing car. He said it's totally unnecessary. The front tires are bigger and wider than the rears on my Vette! lol

They are amazing, and most definitely different from a SS. The handling alone is like no other car in it's price range of even close.

If I didn't have a daughter in college, I probably would already have traded my ss in.

That would make a great car, but no where near the same as a ZL1.

Half shafts, rear diff, suspension, oil injectors, etc.

If you are going to be using the SC a lot, you will find out the hard way that a boosted motor has different bearing tolerances and clearances than a N/A motor.

But if you only have it on for show and an occasional use, you will be ok.

Not sure if you were trying to make a comparison between a SC'd GXP and a ZL1, but you would be mistaken

That would be like comparing my GXP to my K1200S.
I was saying cameros are a dime a dozen on the road... Not so many GXP's, and I know there won't be many ZL1's...

I'd like to have a job where I could easily afford a 54k car.

Absolutely insane

Thanks, ewartrm; we're glad you like the Camaro ZL1. I've been trying to talk them into letting me take one for a spin, but still a no go. LOL

What appeals to you most about it?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I think you'd have to upgrade the suspension too and even still I think ours is probably heavier. Regarding the boosted motor, mine is doing just fine after several road course events running very hard for 25 minute sessions four times a day. Now running 13.5 psi of boost and 96k miles; it might break tomorrow but so far it's running great and putting out 650 lb-ft of torque!

Kooks 1 7/8 LT headers, RCR custom 3 exhaust, ported LSA blower, 2.38 pulley; Ported heads and TB; LS7 MAF, Racetec pistons, Scat rods, CTS-V crank; FAST 85 injectors; RCR Lunati cam: 219/237 .612/.601, 114 +2 LSA. CTS-V pump/VaporWorx cntlr. Built trans, Methanol injection. Rick Crawford built and tuned. Best 1/4 9.68 @142, 1.42 60'.
