Does the ZL1 have the same 4 Cat Exhaust as the SS?

If so, LT headers & HFCs would add a significant amount of power. But thinking most buyers would keep them stock in support of the balance the factory has achieved?

This brings up a point I've been wondering about. What effects would increasing power output have on all of the handling and traction managment systems. Will they be able to compensate or would boosting much above the 580 stock HP throw all the other calibrations off?

Not sure, I would assume yes but you never know. Might want to look into what the ZR1 and CTS-V use, it will probably be similar to them.

The computer(s) should be able to compensate. Its a smart system largely based on detecting wheelspin (instead of predicting wheelspin). The only thing that I can think of that might throw a wrench into things is lowering the ride height, which may or may not mess with the MR shocks.

It will most likely have it because of the emission rules.
