I know you would need to change the charge pipe, but I'd guess it would work with a ZL1 as well...

I know Jeff would be better to answer that question though.

Correct. Boost peaked at 9.x and was in the 8.x - 9 range where it made peak-power.

Correct again. The kit wouldn't go on "As-is" obviously but could be made to work if you wanted to keep the blower in place. Since we just made 998rwhp on a TT GT500 that still had the stock blower I can tell you the blower proves to be a restriction pretty quickly but if you aren't shooting for 4-digit numbers at the wheels it can be worked-around.

How far below the frame do the turbos sit? Are there clearance issues, I wanted to lower my car but after looking at the pictures I think I would hit the turbos.

We have the original kit on quite a few lowered cars running around. Since the skid plate is the lowest point it will not change even though these turbos will have more room between them and the plate. In other words, actually driving over something and physically hurting the turbos is an extreme long-shot.

I will post up a few pics from underneath before we start taking this kit off for the GT35's.

Awesome! That thing looks like it wants to leap off the rollers when the turbos spool!

What's the efficiency range for these turbos? Is there a graph available?

also do you have any pics of the air intake area what keeps rocks,water you name it out of the turbos.

How much weight does this TT setup add? Nice numbers and turbos are easier on the drive train.

I don't have a graph readily available on the turbos but for those considering this kit you most likely will have a ceiling in the 650-750rwhp range depending on all variables. This kit is for anyone wanting 600-700rwhp on a bone-stock or light bolt-on car since that is effectively the limit of the stock engine / drivetrain (Or slightly beyond )

If you plan on a built engine to really run some boost or want to make more than 800rwhp that is where the GT-based kit shines. The large 1.02 A/R and 3" downpipes will flow enough for 1200+rwhp.
