It does sound like a wicked combination, it's just a pity someone else will probably be enjoying it more than you. That car would not stay on the market for long if the price is right. Do you plan on...

I noticed you didn't mention an heat exchanger. Is it not necessary at this level? Are these numbers for autos or manuals?

Are you planning on keeping yours as a collectors car? Why so few miles? Do you ever get the chance to enjoy what you have?

You're probably right, maybe the ZL1 should've come with more hp from the factory. I guess at the time is was the most powerful pony car, though it didn't last long. It's still a quick car from the...

How did it feel after the first round of mods? I'm considering a similar setup. Did you have a stock dyno run for comparison?

If I were in the position to be able to buy a Z06, I wouldn't have to think twice about getting rid of the ZL1. In fact, I was looking for a c6 Z06 when I bought the Z.

When I started the post, I was just asking about the value of the ZL1 to you, the owner. I wasn't necessarily talking about its value as a collectors car. Now the Z28 may be a collector's car.

You have a way with words, Dan. Congrats Granddad! ;). I'm sure he's gonna hate putting gas in the Z in 16 years when it's $9 a gallon. lol!!

I. too, am anxiously waiting to see if there will be another ZL1 coming with the 6th gen. The new SS sounds like it may be a match for the current ZL1.

Do you consider your ZL1 a "keeper"?

My ZL1 is the best all around car I've owned. That being said, I generally tend to hold onto my cars a bit longer than most. I just got rid of my lt1 after 20 years of ownership, and I'm still...

Tire pressure between 30 - 31 psi. I generally put a slight load on the converter...perhaps 1k rpms. It all depends on the track and the conditions. It may take a few passes to get the feel before a...

My stock ZL1 has pulled a few 1.6 60' times with a best of 1.65. So to answer your question...yes the stock tires can hook. They need a lot of heat in them and a well prepped track.
