Very cool! Low Mount Turbos are the way to go for that type of use. Lower IATs and less underhood heat. Very happy with the AGP kit. I think it's the best one. Very high quality and great...

I think Chevy benefited from the Z/28 and did the right thing with the options. Like the original 1LE you cannot buy comfort/gadget options so only people who want a track animal will buy it. No one...

And you could only get it on the Z51 too in the beginning and the ZL1. So I think a track friendly suspension is not incompatible with MR. It just makes it more livable.

I'm all in on MR.

Congrats on the 1LE! Not everyone will like the same thing. The 22" wheels will be a hard sell in the 1LE forum however.

Since Chevy is saying the 2016 SS is faster than the 1LE on a track (any track?) looking forward to some back to back comparisons.

Even starting at $50K it will be more considerably expensive than an SS which...

And Hiflows will increase performance. Catbacks will not.

But if you add LTs to NPP I think it sounds awful.

By the time I was done adding turbos, well over $15,000. One thing will lead to...

Don't bother with the Goodyears. They are like the worst tire ever at the drags strip. If you can get a 2.0 with them you are doing great. I was faster on SS Pirellis.

I think the NPP is the same on both. The Z/28 is 2.75" I believe.

I am running the Magnaflow 3" ZL1 catback with 4" quad tips and they fit just fine on the 1LE.

But OP, I think you could just...

Nice choice. There was a new stock one at Atco last night running 12.4s. I think it was like the second time the guy was at the track. They are a great value for the $$ and the new interior is nice.

Let's hope! If what Chevy says are the facts I think I am in for an SS, probably a 2017.

I would need to sell my 1LE myself though. It's way too extreme for a dealer.

After another fruitless night of launching at Atco, not even getting into the 11s, I will give the good old Camaro Launch Control a try. Who knows? It might be just the thing with my set up.

Thanks for clearing that up Nick. My AGP is 3" all way. Love it. But all turbos are fun and interesting. Nice to get thumbs up from Hondas with slicks on the front.

There you go 136 mph, automatic, and another 100 hp over my car. That's what it takes to stay up with a Hellcat.
