The ACR is a bit more of a handful to drive at the limit but is amazing. ZL1 1LE is a bit more driver friendly but still harsh. To me the cruise night scene and track rat requirements are vastly...

I wouldn't run a spring within .01 of its limit but with the 1.72 rocker you're definitely over .650. It's not a difficult swap, especially with the heads off.

You'd just need a custom tune. Plenty of people have done conversions to the ZL1 engine and some to an LS7 as well. LSX454 is also out there but a steel block so adds weight.

Negative, gotta do a total swap. Pumpkin, axles, rear half of driveshaft. It'd be one big heavy ass suitcase.

There's no way I'd use that fitting, it would seriously restrict flow and increase pressure. There's a reason why those are used in ultra low flow situations like brakes only. Something like this...

I would stick with mid 30lbs and not go lighter unless you have this as more of a track only vehicle. It will be a pain to drive below that and not everyone is willing to deal with that. I'd suggest...

If you're driving there they'll be fully warmed up for the event. The manufacturer is the only source I would trust for min operating/storage temps as it's different for every tire.
