I made two simple bolt on adds and probably added 40-45 rwhp. No tune was required. I love the additional power and whine from the supercharger.

Stop light to stop light = ZL1 needs more HP

I am completely shocked by the results of this H2H. Ford must have bench marked the Camaro to extreme degree. If they did not that was a tremendous mistake. I can't believe they missed the mark...

There's no guarantee of a ZL1 for Gen 6. If they do make one it may not be until 17 or 18.

It's way too much car for the dragstrip. I have done both and the road course is exponentially more fun and requires way more skill.

Some of what you say is potentially true; however, it's accounted for in validation of the stock car. You are putting way more air and fuel through your modified car. Look, it's not impossible to...

In my experience the only thing that will melt (clog in your terms) a catalyst is a misfire. Get this, EGTs actually go down in this scenario but raw fuel and O2 are sent into the hot catalyst where...

There were other similar threads back in 2012 when the ZL1 first came out. It's a fairly simple mod and I'm surprised more people don't add the cold air intake and 5% pulley.

I removed the one idler pulley (held on with single bolt) to help with getting the stock damper out of the FEAD area once it was pulled off. That is the only thing removed in addition to the belts.
