I thought I wouldn't have the timeline left to get the HP upgrade, and since project "FREEDOM FIGHTER" is in your neck of the woods, heading your way this week for your 750 PACKAGE!

Do you feel an upgrade to any driveline pieces would be needed for a street cruiser with your above mentioned gear?
- clutch?
- axels?
- studs?

--- yellow ZL1 is at ~728 HP flywheel
--- white ZL1 is at ~815 HP flywheel
----- The trap speed and ~4400 lbs indicates a lot higher HP (854 at the wheel and 928 on the fly)

Who cares!!! it's VERY quick!

Thank you - I am the proud owner of the Livernois modd'd yellow ZL1! The guys at Livernois did a fantastic job on my car- and for a great value (I now have approx 728bhp @ $95/hp in the car). Many thanks to Andy, Rick, and Dave at Livernois. Their work and customer service was great! Needless to say, the new found power is spellbinding... Definitely check out Livernois if you are looking to tune up your Camaro... El Oso...

Phase III of project "FREEDOM FIGHTER" is on it's way to Livernois MotorSports this weekend and hopefully , I can remain true to the vanity plate below



Picture is deceptive, but it has been widened 3 1/2 inches on each side, just look at the meats to tell. First true ZL1 widebody to hit the streets

I want me a ZL1 spoiler for my SS. I don't understand why they don't offer that as an add on like the Heritage grille. Its the only aggressive spoiler I want to put onto my car.

I love the gunmetal powdercoated wheels! I do like ABM but it looks odd as a stripe on the ZL1 IMO. I would have done a gunmetal stripe, to match the other accents, with an ABM pinstripe around the edge. Then added ABM calipers and an ABM pinstripe on the wheels!

I love all the Z's they looks beautiful, wish I could afford one! Also a question, I am in an automotive highschool class. Was wondering why you/anyone goes down to a lower thermostat temp rating? I'm curious because we were reading about the coolant system. I am not saying you are wrong by what you are doing at all, or starting an argument. But trying to learn since I am such a newb.

"A common misconception is that installing thermostat with a lower temperature rating will result in a cooler running engine. This practice will simply result in the engine operating temperature being lower during cooler weather.
