Were I live I have seen tons of Gen 6 Camaros and have seen a Gen6 ZL1 in real life. It does nothing for me. At a distance it does not look much different than a standard Gen 6. The wing is meh.........

The 1LE is a parts bin car..... not sure the Mustang guys should be bringing this up. A custom parts super mustang (GT350) getting stomped by a "parts bin" car does not make them look any better.

This was the point of the LT4 supercharger. It amazes me that the LT4 has a 10:1 AF ratio but that is important to the choices made included the smaller blower.

Little read about the motor.

This is the right answer. Some dealers might turn an eye to mods. But if you blow the motor GM will ask for detailed information about the car. Even from 2010 to today GM has become more restrictive...

I made the jump from a 2013 ZL1 to a 2016 Z06 a few months back.

Z06 is 3550 / 650 hp = 5.46 lb per HP

ZL1 is 4150 / 580 hp = 7.16 lb per HP

To get a ZL1 to the same power to weight = 760 HP...

Stock C7 w/ LT1 = 3347

Z06 w/LT4 = 3523

So a difference of 176 lbs

The ZL1 has all the features of the SS2.

I would maybe consider just fitting the NPP back on with the longtubes and cats. Clearly the car is tuned so warranty is gone. With NPP it should be more livable and may not even need to be re-tuned....
