Giving in to temptation is very hard......

........ and it's killing me! I love my ZL1 but I've already gotten use to the stock HP but of course I want more.

And yet at the same time I'm trying to resist because I want to keep my factory warranty.

What's a guy suppose to do? lol

But then he'll get used to that and need headers, and then he'll get used to that and get a cam, and then he'll get used to that and upgrade the supercharger...

Drive it for a year or 10k miles, if a factory part was weak, it will have shown up by then.

After that, just choose wisely.

Well, I bought a daily driver and thought driving a slower car each day would make me appreciate the fact the ZL1 already has a ton of power and convince me it doesn't need upgrading.

Now, whilst it certainly does make me appreciate the ZL1 more, the problem is that now I'm beginning to think I can have it sent off to a shop for some serious upgrades as I don't need it each day....

So it worked the other way round than I planned haha..

There are two schools of thought...

1.) This is a 580 HP car with a 100,000 mile powertrain warranty. Why mess with it?

2.) This is a 580 HP $60K car...who buys that kind of car and can't afford to fix it if they break it?

Not saying either is wrong or right.....
