They are also giving me a set of long tube headers that I have to get installed. They are illegal in California so they can't install them.

I may have a short clip but I know Dangeruss did some video. We started it up one day at the shop to take a listen... It really doesn't sound much different than stock until you get on it. The car even has a cam...

Cool, the Borla is also similar to stock until you get on it.

Strickly jealousy typing here........ But I feel like a ZL1 modded is like having a cheat code in real life for unlimited speed......Makes me want to trade Mz. Ashely in.

It's a Dynapack, a true load-brake dyno - just like the best engine dynos. Since we have real hydraulic load brakes, it allows you to perform tests that simple inertia-dynos are incapable of. This provides unprecedented control over the vehicle with real precision.

To the OP, sweet car and glad to see you're modding it. Since I just moved to SoCal last month, I'm sure we'll meet up.

So what's that do to the warranty? If you're concerned about it.

I'm laughing that they actually labeled them left & right with stickers! Like you wouldn't know what side they go to.
