This same setup is available for the ZL1. Let us know if you have any questions.

The direct port nitrous setup will be tested on this car in a couple of weeks.

Nice numbers. Who tuned the car in Florida? As I see your in Raleigh and NY.

KDi engineered the CTS-V Whipple kit on Manny's car and we consult with him a great deal about his setup. Sorry for the confusion. Basically, we sync up a couple times a week. Manny has Marv help him with the wrenching and Jeremy does most of the larger calibration changes. Manny also runs the KDi heat exchanger and pump on his setup with some other smaller items as well.
So the short story and the intent of the tread is Manny is using our power adder and we partly sponsor the setup as well as consult on the build. Jeremy has done an awesome job getting the combination to perform.

When I visit my customers in south Florida I do a lot of tuning while in town. While in Raleigh I support a lot of others via remote tuning. We welcome collaboration.

Let me take these questions please, Howard.

The pulley is a 2.875". The blower is not completely maxed out just yet as it only has a 102 TB on it and the inlet is 114mm. There is likely another 50 HP in it with a larger TB and the intake the intake piping that was updated to 4.5", along with cooler weather to come.
We will work to get the IAT2's a little lower into something like the 160* range and the end of summer will likely help that. Manny is also looking at a couple of other things to keep it cool and then there is always the possibility of spinning it harder.
Things will certainly be kept cool on the spray.

We have also noticed that the ZL1 runs cooler than the CTS-V with it's larger frontal area/grill.

The IAT2 sensor is in the blower manifold ahead of the injectors in the airflow path. As mentioned, he is running e85 and dislikes the price of C16. Valid point.
