I wish I could. Damn late winter holding on. Last year this time we were well into the 60's and 70's. This year we haven't broken 50 on a regular basis. Spring better come soon, I want to start driving!

The fuse pull is a fix for dealers or customers that put 87 octane in their car when new. If you use 93 from the beginning and do a fuse pull, you're not really gaining anything because the PCM will already be using the programs for higher octane fuel.

Every time I walk by this car I have to stop and admire the lines... Black was absolutely the right choice and the flat black hood stays. It really sets the car off.

Not only that, the flat black hood looks mean as hell from the driver's seat. No way mine is coming off.

You do know that there is an 154 hp difference at the crank and the ZL1 has the mag ride. I'd say the ZL1 would tame it quite quickly

I declined a test drive in a ZL1 for fear of it causing me to make a bad financial decision... lol

No matter how fast this thing feels I know in stock form a ZL1 would brutalize this car. Fortunately she won't stay stock for very long...

Nice! You are going to LOVE it. Did you get either NPP or the Nav? Might be my cars twin. If so mine is the evil one... lol

I'm thinking mine is a Roxy... dirty little whore that she is. I love her though.... lol

Just looking at your pics again. Wish I had that much room in my garage. I've only got a single car garage, and I've got stuff packed in on all the walls. Spent three weekends moving, organizing, and throwing stuff away. And it will still be a tight fit.
