Just as my January allocation arrived, Crystal Red is put on Quick Order and it is announced that B92 is put on constraint. I can't catch a break here. So I passed up my January allocation and will give it one more month and hope that the B92 problem is resolved in the next few weeks BEFORE the Feb. allocation comes in. But on a bright note, at least the color I want is available and if B92 is still on constraint then I will order the car without it and try to work a deal to buy the part at cost over the counter at a later date.

Jedi- I told my dealer that some on the forms were getting the B92 replaced for $600 when it is avialable (see other posts on that). He got back to me and offered to do it when available at cost, but he could not commit to $600.

I think that is very fair, and so I now have a Ashen Grey Metalic ZL1 with base mohawk and base black wheels that went to status 3000 today (although dated yesterday, I got email and dealer update today). I am really hoping I can get the CRT change in, and I also will change to the optional bright wheels if I can get CRT (then powdercoat them to the carbon version).

Talk to your dealer, mine was willing to work with me on the exposed carbon fiber insert price.

Congratulations on the CRT and good luck!

Bruce, I hope you can change your color to CRT but I heard that once you reach 3000 that it is too late to make changes. If you are able to make the change, your order might slip back to 2000/2400. Definitely get the car in the color you want first, the rest can be added. I casually mentioned buying the CF Hood at cost to my dealer but did not pressure the issue. I will wait and see what the status of B92 is at the next allocation.

Why Chevy would be what amounts to cruel to move people to 3000 the very same day that they finally release CRT rather than at least give the enthusiasti loyal at least a couple days to order a newly released color is beyond me.

I ordered at opening time the very first day. I have done everything right to get this vehicle. I would hope Chevy has SOME touch with reality.

I have seen a post from FBODFATHER stating that color can be changed up to 3100, but almost all other info i have seen says not after 3000.

I really do not know if I will just plain give up or not if they can't change me to CRT. I am hoping they might accomodate.

Does anyone know if I would LOSE THE ORDER AND ALLOCATION if I change color anyway, or if I just delay production? If it is a decision between VIN number and getting the color i REALLY want, i will wait, but I fear I could lose the allocation.

Any insights please? The experts please chime in?

B92 is the exposed carbon fiber hood insert (or was). Currently constrained.

Is there another secret way to get the order changed to Crystal Red? My dealership is doing all they can to get the order changed, but say it is not showing up in the system yet as available.

This is very important to me so please any assistance would be greatly appreciated?

Please help?

When I talked to my dealer a few days ago i asked about the red tintcoat, and he looked on the order form. He said yup it's showing up as an option
now. But glitches could come up the next day and now show up or perhaps some other reason.
Unless your like status 2000 or 3000 I would not be overly concerned at this point. Sounds like when the next round of allocations are available the crystal red will be easy to order. Hopefully the exposed carbon fiber will
be available as well.
I'm just wondering at this point when we might see the ZL1 verts being
available and when we will start to see people driving them. You think will
see some by the time camaro fest 3 starts in August?

If you are referring to the standard pic on my posts, it is the CRT camaro taken from the Brochure and modified with the Carbon Concept wheels... Not exactly photoshopped quality, and is not even the ZL1, but I love the look!

here is a bigger view:

The ones in the brochure are an optional 21" wheel for the Camaro. They are not forged and are not the same widths as the ZL1 wheels.

Have your dealer check with GM Customer Service. Hylton is on this site and has been very helpful. I hope you get your order changed. CRT was put on constraint but supposedly is not for a long time. I hope CRT and B92 are available by the next allocation.

Ok,i realize that this is probably not the area to post this but this is where my original post began,so here goes,...i had stated that i was having the G.M. hot cam intall in my 2010,and was an inquiry as to it providing the #'s that was stated in the G.M. performance book of 50hp/50tq.,well after having it re-tuned after install,it did make a very noticible diff.in pwr.,does really well but still have not had dynoed to provide real #'s,if anyone else is thinking of having the cam install in the LS3 i had to buy a 3 bolt cam pully as well due to the stock cam was a 1 bolt pulley and the perf.cam is a 3 bolt cam,it has a nice lope to it and deapened the exaust note,i did not want it to sound like a drag car so i went with the G.M. cam which is just a little increase in duration and less lift than stock LS3 cam,
