GM stated it was a 1900, which is the same set CTS-V has now. The upper plenum is different, even though the upper plenums from ZR1, CTS-V, and I imagine ZL1 are interchangable. Some details to consider are the intercooler hose routing and cowl clearance. Anyways, it would be nice for GM to stuff the 2300 from LS9 onto LSA, but my hopes aren't high. Magnuson has posted that the 1900 rotor set is good to 800 horsepower, so there's still a fair amount of headroom and you gotta' know that GM isn't hardly leaning on it in the 9 psi boost it is with CTS-V.

I want those vertical stack fog lights on my 2011. I hope someone makes a conversion kit, because I'd buy it right now.

I'm sure he's just speaking out of the Eaton promotional info that goes into the advantages of the TVS design vs the traditional like still found on the GT500's. I don't think its going to be making any more hp then the CTS-V

I like most everything about it, but couldn't they save the gold bow tie on the steering wheel for the cobalt and put a ZL1 logo on the steering wheel just like they use to so with the first gen SS, RS, ect?

LOL...I can see your predicament, however for me it's out the old, and in with the new! I'm parting with my '02 35th SS to get the ZL1..., oh well...que serra, serra...., it would be nice to keep 'em all. I hope you can build a bigger barn for your machines!

It bothered me how he kept saying zed also. GM should send out a memo or something.

I understand in Canada the letter Z is pronounced Zed, and the car is made in Canada, but it is an American car. So the official way to say it from GM employees should only be one way.

Just like coke, pepsi and mcdonalds
