2012 production is over as stated above. Who is "they"? That kind of retrofit would be ridiculously expensive...

I am gonna say no. If you knew what all elements the 1LE consisted of you'd be surprised. It's more than a few suspension pieces..

Do you realize how much it will cost you to retrofit?

maybe I should be more clear.

No GM dealer is going to retrofit your SS to a 1LE. It would require replacing/adding/retooling so many parts the cost would be prohibitive. Half shafts, dampers, gears, toe links, a new transmission (1LE is liquid cooled), adding fuel pickups, etc etc etc... Just to name a few things. Maybe you could do it aftermarket but it'd be far, far cheaper to just buy a '13 1LE.

Do you just want the black hood wrap?????

The 1LE has..
A different transmission with additional cooling and gearing
Dampers
Different Fuel pump and fuel pickups
Flat bottom steering wheel with microfiber on wheel and shift knob
ZL1 forged wheels
ZL1 toe links
Upgraded half shafts probably off the ZL1
Monotube shocks
Thicker stablizer bars
Different wheel bearings
Tower to Tower brace

You are talking about lots of time and $$$ to try to install all that to a 2012

A lot of reading. It's a Camaro forum. We know things.
