My new obsession... ZL1

11-20-2016 After nearly 80,000 miles, 5 years, and a TON of mods/memories, I said "Good bye" to my 1st obsession, a'11 2LT/RS.... and "HELLO" to a '12 ZL1.... (only 20k miles on it)



..... This is the 1st time I've ever purchased a pre-owned vehicle from a dealership & not from a family member. I hope I did the right thing.... LET THE MODS BEGIN!


Performance / Engine Mods:
  • Clutch Reservoir Relocation Kit (JDP)
  • Cold Air Intake (CAI
  • Mild to Wild NPP controller
  • Remote Clutch SPEEDbleeder line (Tick Performance)

Cosmetic & Miscellaneous Mods:


Future Mods:
  • Headers

11-26-2016 Afterburner tail lights, sequential turn signal pigtails & concept side markers installed


12-3-2016 Clutch Reservoir Relocation Kit installed
Stock reservoir is shared between the brake & clutch....


Removed dirty brake fluid from the reservoir; but no ALL of it.


SLIGHTLY bent the bracket on the new brake reservoir to prevent the hose from rubbing against the body.


For some reason, getting the clamp seated properly was an absolute B**CH! (we ended up using a little WD-40 on the hose and it slid right into place.


installed...


this shows where the hose would rub if the bracket wasn't slightly bent before installing..


12-3-2016 Tick Performance Remote Clutch SPEEDbleeder line install...

pulled the lower panel off...


getting a socket on the bleeder is tough... it's a tight fit, and if we dropped the socket, or the bleeder into the bell housing, we'd have to pull the tranny. :(


This is my buddy Greg... using the force, and praying... and probably peeing a little... while he attempted to remove the the old bleeder. (He did it on his SS, so we figured "No problem... YOU GOT THIS!")


There is an obvious difference between the '12 SS bleeder (top) and the '12 ZL1 bleeder (lower)

ZL1 (left) SS (right)


Fabricated a "ghetto bracket" and installed the speed bleeder.
