Thanks Lionssfan - the black car is a ZL575 all done at SLP. His exhaust is a little bit louder than mine because he has their Longtube Headers as well. The axle back he has is the powerflo versus Loudmouth II. It does sound great. I'm looking to one day get the SLP LTs installed as well, they are supposed to sound deeper and louder matched up with the Loudmouth II. There is a video on the exhaust compilation thread. To answer your PM about his wheels. Those are also from SLP, they were the ones used for their ZL1 car.

Lukeko,

Awesome car. I too have the SLP long tube headers/crossover/Powerflow on my Zl 550 and the exhaust is pretty impressive. Thanks for the detailed description of the services. Great post! See you soon.

Nice Ride!!!!

On your parts list, you mention a few ZL1 parts found at gmpartshouse.com. On their site, I can't find a listing for the ZL1. Is there something I'm missing - or am I looking in the wrong place? I'm especially interested in the side skirts. Thanks for any info.

Thanks - i would reccomend contacting Patrick or Gene directly, they can give you a quote and get you setup. I have a tough time finding things ontheir site too and just call them or email them and tell them what i need/want. I hope this helps. The ZL1 rockers will look great on your car.

Love your ride man. I just bought a 2012 Camaro and excited to join the forum. Where is the performance shop you had your work done? I'm very interested in getting work done since this not my daily drive. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks Kronix for posting the link!

Black Santa - I see you are in my area. I'm going to PM you the local SLP rep that took good care of me. You should give him a call. You are welcome to contact me as well with any questions. He is going to be in the area next week too, you can setup a time to check out and test drive a ZL car to see if it's enough umph for you.

Lukeko,

Looks great. I'm in VA now, do you keep the front plate off and put it on? When? I folded my plate and fit it in the lower opening. According to the law if you don't obstruct anything on the plate it' legal, so folded it to the numbers.

Hi SS4PK - its great to have another local C5er around. Where abouts in VA? I usually keep the front plate off. I keep the plate and bracket in the trunk in case I get pulled over. So far ive been lucky, depending on where you are laws can be enforced more.

Interesting idea folding the plate. Do you have pics? I know they usually like to see the expiration tags, but thats what rear plates are for.

Did you have to update to Pro? That's what I had to do, too much bandwidth for the free Photobucket

Lukeko,

We are in Chesapeake. A front plate is a must here. Every 28 days the Police go on a huge traffic enforcement detail. The three of us have all been been pulled over since we moved here. Two warnings and the one ticket was yesterday.

I think you're about 1.5 to 2 hours away? Yeah front plates laws are one of those pointless seeming laws. Sorry about the ticket. With the SLP bracket it's easy to take off and put back on with two wing nuts. I decided I'll ride without until I get my first warning or ticket. Or if I know I'll be in an area that I should throw it on I will. I bought the remote show and go plate bracket but with being lowered and having the lip I opted out. I need to put that up for sale here, it's brand new.
