I would like to see a factory CAI, freer flowing manifolds and the ZL1 beefed up diff and axles with a 3.73 gear. There's an easy way to bump the HP to 450 and drop weight to just under 3800 lbs. I would put a deposit down today.

I don't get the leather seats with out the 4 pack gauges. I would have done the exact opposite.
All of this, esp. the bolded part...want me to "keep the faith" build it as described here. No more overweight pigs!!!!

I know many people like all their pretty and comfy internals, but one can't have everything... Is it too much to ask to have a "Stripper Z" again?
I sure hope not......but again, "keep the faith"

Sounds like we need to take a road trip to Ohio to straighten the boy out.
