People don't seem to understand that you get what you pay for. If you take your car to an exhaust shop and pay $200 to have a knucklehead who learned to weld in 5 minutes hack a Flowmaster onto your car it's going to sound like shit! Corsa is worth every last cent.

I noticed your close proximity to Las Vegas.Give Leading Edge Performance a call and ask for Garth.He will turn your fast car into a MUCH faster car that drives as "smooth as silk".#702-375-4999.

No Sun roof (moon roof) Just the strip?? Looks good, and sounds good!
Did you have to do the exaust because of the upgrades in the engine??
Or just cuz
What did you add to it... cam specs...etc and if you dont mind how much did it cost you?....ball park if you like.
Not sure if I want to do my ZL1 or keep it stock..I meen around 500 stock to 600...it sounds worth it but was it?

I love the cam lope at idle, sounds mean. Congrats on COTW the car looks very clean. Have any WOT videos? I know that I'm not the only one who wants to see this beast open up.

so 720 RWHP is what 860 to 880 to the crank? KDI has a ZL1 with the same specs.

Lets see ZR1 3350/638=5.25 lb/hp
boosted ZL1 3900/880=4.43 lb/hp
Noble m400 2337/425=5.49 lb/hp (same as an Enzo)

So you have to ask if the $$ are worth turning your ZL1 into an Enzo eater with better than 400 BHP/HP ???

What you get is a car that eats Ponies & Prancing Horses....at a fraction of the cost.
