camarovigoa 2013 Camaro ZL1

Figured it was about time id finally make a build thread for the ZL1!
I sold my 2010 SS thinking i was done with the racing and bought the ZL1 literally 20 minutes after we gave the new owner of my 2010 the keys! I promised myself i wouldn't modify the ZL1 at all and would just daily drive the car....... Yeah.... You all see how that turned out... LOL! 400 miles on the car and I was already on the drag strip beating on the car! And convinced myslef that it wouldn't hurt to have a few little mods. It was all down hill after there! The car went from from going 12.23@115 bone stock to 10.43@131 with full Bolt-ons to 9.75@140 with Cam , Ported Stock LSA Heads, Ported Blower/Snout and Bolt-ons to 9.35@146 with the same Cam , Ported stock LSA Heads, Ported Blower/Snout and bolt-ons plus a 150 shot of nitrous! BUT best part.... Its still running the Stock Bottom End, Stock Transmission, Stock Converter, Stock Suspension, and full weight at 4260lbs!!!! I have had an absolute blast with the car and extremely blessed for my friends and family that have supported me through this journey with the car! Couldn't have accomplished anything without them! But the one main person for making the car a Record Breaking MONSTER is Jay Healy of KraftWorks!!!! He made the car what is today and in my opinion is the best of the best!!! Best shop I have ever worked with!!!

Thank you buddy!!! Yes sir we had perfect weather with negative DA so we were able to add more fuel so we tweaked the tune a bit and put some fresh M&Hs on and let it eat and it didn't skip a beat!!!
