I had another tuner recommend Chevron. He claimed he saw less knock with Chevron. Unfortunately, the closest Chevron to me is 100 miles away so Shell is what goes in my car.

Since you already have a Roto-Fab intake, I'd suggest a Big Gulp and windshield washer relocation kit. That will get a little more cool air to the intake and possibly a few more ponies.

I could have sworn it was the 315s. However, looking back through the threads it is indeed 295s on the front that are causing rubbing issues for some members. Thanks for setting the record straight.

I previously owned '11 and '12 2SS convertibles. KaBoom's assessment of the two models exactly matches mine. I guarantee you won't regret making the switch from a SS to a ZL1.
