thats good you havent had any problems so far. Have you had your car next to an actual zl1 to compare the two inserts? what are the main differences? This insert actually looks more lengthy and smaller than a zl1's?

Its supposed to be the same size, it may looks smaller because the regular hood has a narrower and lower cowl than the ZL1 does. The main differences are it sits on top of the hood while the ZL1 has a indention it sits in so it sits more flush. The TL1 also has screens in it for the vents where the ZL1 has slats.
Under the hood the water deflectors are also different.

seriously considering to do this, I love the look, and the functionality. It may sound like a big risk; but what the hell....

I was sitting at a stop light yesterday with the outside temp in the 20's watching the heat waves coming out of the vents...
In my opinion its the best mod I have done, it looks great and its functional too. After a full two years on the car it still looks like new.

I have read the entire 40 pages of this thread and I love this mod! My only question that I need to know is will this work with a maggy blower and rotofab intake? My only concern is that the water tray might hit the intake tube.

Thank you for the feedback and suggestions from the ZL1 Hood insert thread. Zl1 inserts are now available and in stock. While doing this we have been listening and can proudly say we have completed the design and function for a Zl1 style insert for SS LT LS Hoods.

Currently completing our tooling our TL1 Hood insert to be installed on any SS LT LS Hood.

TL1 (Zl1 Replica) Hood insert for SS LT LS Hoods

Introducing the TL1 Hood Insert self-install kit, the coolest way to upgrade your STOCK Hood. That's right, modify your Aluminum Hood and save on re-paint and the hassles with replacement hoods. The ACS TL1 Hood Insert self install kit pays homage to the Zl1 while matching the lines of the existent stock hood of your Camaro.

Other than its lightness the original Camaro Hood does not offer any performance advantages, until now that is. Install the Tl1 Hood Insert to extract the engines hot air, and reduce body lift at high speed by relieving under hood pressure. Trim your hood following our guide and templates, rest assured every trimmed edge will be covered (Margin of error, +/- 1/8'' outer). Hood insert kit includes a water management system draining the water towards the front radiator support away from critical engine electronics. For extreme events like racing, you can easily remove the deflector for an optimum suction effect.

Insert is made in ACS's proprietary RTM process and is shipped in a primer finish ready for prep and paint. Unlike conventional fiberglass ACS's RTM process has been tested to withstand heat and distortion. Stock hood will need to be trimmed and 6 mounting holes will need to be drilled. Includes the Insert, rain water deflector, mounting hardware, octagonal grill mesh kit powder coated black and templates.



Reduce body lift and engine heat by upgrading your Camaro Hood while saving on repainting or heavy cost associated with replacement hoods.

Includes

1. 1 – ACS ZL1 Hood Insert for SS LT LS Hood
2. 1 - ACS Water Deflector
3. 1 - Front Passenger Side Hood Grill, Octagonal Mesh
4. 1 - Rear Passenger Side Hood Grill, Octagonal Mesh
5. 1 - Front Driver Side Hood Grill, Octagonal Mesh
6. 1 - Rear Driver Side Hood Grill, Octagonal Mesh
7. 6 - M6 Nut with Mounted Washer
8. 1 - Templates
9. 1 - Adhesive Cartridge



















Pm price.. 77477 also want something like the Z28 by the wheel wells.. not mud flaps I don't know the name.. I have you rocker panels so I'm in computer Jack Metcalf

So i didnt make it through all 70+ pages, but from what I gather the drip tray wont clear on a SC install? (TVS 2300) Anyone that can verify for sure? Deciding between this and hex vents..

Magnuson under the hood

Mounted with a Magnuson supercharger and Rotofab CAI. Managed to retain the rain pan as well. A note regarding installation though, at the back I used a dermal to notch the back edge to be flush with the hood (see picture). If you use the template correctly you'll get this weird thing where there's either a gap at the back bottom OR you push the insert further back and it drops down flush. I didn't like either option so Joseph instructed me to trim the bottom sides back to be absolutely flush with the back edge that faces the front window. My suggestion is to do this BEFORE you paint the insert. I caught this after painting and had to be super careful not to chip my sweet new paint in this process. One last thing is in regards to drilling out the holes to bolt down the hood. You need to use a stepped drill, so as not to pull the sheet metal when the bit breaks through. Also, drill the holes larger. You will need play in the holes to get the right fitment. The piece will potentially buckle up and not sit flush or you won't get the micro-play needed to get the hood lines to match up.

A note on Joseph at ACS, this guy provides high customer service. I took a picture emailed it to him and in 30 minutes he went to his desk, added the red lines to show me exactly what to trim and emailed it back to me. I wish more vendors responded in this manner.
