ZL1 Diffuser finished! Was a decent amount of work with the cutting, drilling, and riveting but its great. About a billion clips, screws, rivets, and brackets, this thing is really on there good.

Bought NGK TR6 spark plugs, 160* thermostat, vmax ported throttle body, and showstopper front splash shields.

the vmax is a great upgrade, it will take the lag out of you acceleration.... I had one installed by JRE at the fest... the 160 degree therm down here in this HEAT is mandatory...

really nice meeting you and your wife

I did notice the throttle response on the way home, makes a difference.

Havent put the thermostat in yet, need to get some coolant.

Nice to meet you too, tons of cool people at the fest, cant wait for next fest, in texas.

Something I forgot until now. I was at a gas station in Indy, and AL O was there getting gas in a 2014 ZL1 'vert, he walked over and told me how much he liked a few things Ive done to my car. I said "Thank you for making my car." haha. Nice guy.

I know a lot of ppl probably talked to him at the fest but I was busy racing and never got a chance, so it was cool to run into him on my way out like that.

Nice customizing.

While I do like some aspects of the ZL1, I think once I add a splitter and lower my car a bit I don't see me buying one.

Im still on the fence about the ZL1 front end. Because, with the rockers, rear diffuser, and a 1Le splitter, the car will look damn good.

Id still want a different hood though, and i want a metal one, ive had too much bad luck with fiberglass fitment in the past. Only option is the ZL1 hood really. We'll see haha.

Id definitely like a small drop too.

Too many mods, not enough money..

Starting to save up for the Lethal Racing night fury cam, and its disappointing because it just keeps getting more expensive.

I have to do the LS3 conversion at the same time obviously, plus the cam package, and I just realized a new converter is about $900!!

Plus when im done installing ill have to pay to get it towed to Lethal, then tuned, ugh.

Though it was gonna be a grand, now its looking like 3 grand.......

It will be an awesomeeeeee mod though, but it just depends on what you want . A used suoercharger system isn't too much more than that .

Trust me, the second I typed 3 grand, I thought about a supercharger. But id prolly still need the LS3 conversion, converter, tune, and a tow i think.

Now why the hell did you go and do that hahahah, making my decision harder

I personally was always against black wheels for my particular build, but that looks amazing.

I am DEFINITELY buying wheels in the next year, and i was trying to decide between the black ZL1/1LE wheels, or the other (silver) ZL1 wheels.

I would leave the 1LE 10 spokes black, OR

I would get the silver ZL1 wheels and powdercoat them two tone, really dark silver and a medium/light silver accents.

Both would have a red pinstripe, but I like that photoshop you did
