Looks great, which brace did you end up using, having trouble finding one that fits with a supercharger. Thanks

That is 100% sexiness there!
And I think the fuse box untainted compliments the other black under hood.

Looks great. Even though they make little to no improvements, they certainly make the engine bay look a lot better.

Thanks for the info, picked one up today from the dealer, they had a hard time finding it, since they just received it this morning. Did you paint or powder coat?

What does the adaptor kit actually do? Does it act as a shim to raise the brace?? thanks

On the 2010 & some of the 2011 they did not come with the mounting holes to install the brace. TPiS makes a "kit" to be able to install the factory brace.

Hard to believe the adapter kit is more expensive than the brace itself!

Only for the 2010 and early 2011s. Anything newer is a direct bolt on

The adapter kit requires drilling so why not drill and bolt the brace right on?

You shouldn't need the adapter kit with a supercharger; only if you don't have holes for the brace from the factory.

For some reason, the ZL1 has a hump in the brace. I have a Maggie and the standard brace fits just fine.

The shape of the tower is different on the ones that come drilled for the brace. The adapter kit makes up for the lack of relief for the brace:
