One, Yes
Two, not so much.

My wife used to work dialysis. You don't want to go there.

Don't need 800 hp to beat it. But yes, a SC will do the trick.

I guess this video only deals with the manual transmission, how does it work on the autos?

Why would you WANT to do that. As long as youre only doing that to the ZL1 then thats fine:p don't ruin the car!!! Its perfect the way it is even if its slower than the 2013 Shelby on the strip, it'll sure as hell be a nicer car and Id rather have that than straight line speed !!
