The ZL1 rear is considerably stronger than the diff in an SS or 1LE. From what I have heard, the diff can handle 1000whp. So far I have not heard of any ZL1 diff's breaking, even from tons of hard launches and modded engines well over stock.

An SS diff on the other hand has been known to break things with just bolt-ons added. It is supposed to be good for 600whp but a few members had snapped axles and drive shafts. One thing everyone is saying, if you plan on drag racing a lot the SS diff will go at some point.

3700 for a complete ZL1 bolt on diff is not a bad price (at least that is the price quote I have heard).
