With the 700hp upgrade is the rev limiter set higher and can the factory shift lights be adjusted for higher rpm limits?

Yes, this package includes our transmission calibration which does raise limiter and shift points.

I haven't asked for one picture of the build yet, but after you fire up my ZL1 and it's tune, make a video so we can here it

What is the max RPM of your kit? Are the shift lights able to be adjusted too??

I am not certain the reasoning behind your comment. All other companies I looked at that even bother to offer an 800hp+ package warranty it for 1 year or less. In fact, most have a mileage restraint for that 1 year, where we do not.

I am also looking for some clarification. We have never been contacted on any concerns with the car, be it paint color, durability, anything.

You got me curious and I write this with no favoritism towards Livernois ; the way your personalized your ZL1 with the painted color accents is one of the BEST looking ZL1's I've seen so far!!!

like i stated earlier, in more depth , i think livonia probably engineers some of the fastest cars out there, they give you 12month warrenty on there work, some give 24months 24k miles, since mine was a shop car and had 400 miles i did not recieve any warrenty in writing, but with that said if the warrenty was that big of a deal i would not have bought it they old saying (if you want to play you must pay) with that said at 800+ hp this car is borderline streetable, i just came back from a ride i was around 70mph on e-way stompt on it to pass and almost went sideways CRAZY!!!

First, I seen that video you posted of running around the track, and I told Andy & Rick thats exactly how I want my ZL1 to sound

I just got the exact same mods done to your ZL1 on mine by Livernois Motorsports and I received the below comment posted on the YOUTUBE video that Livernois posted about my build..


"sound and looks like it could rip up the gates of hell.... extreme automotive badassery "


So I know what your talking about, but thats what I wanted.....

Stavros "DOES" own that ZL1 ...........




And this is the video I was referring to in my last post about "Stavros" putting the pedal to the metal and sealed my fate to chose Livernois Motorsports for my HP mods

How did the event go with your cousin(s)? It's good to see the car on the track.

I know everyone has difference in opinion, but the car is pretty tame for the power it makes. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it every day, but wouldn't want to do it on stock tires. I think that's why it seems so violent. With the MT, it barely spun from a roll.

As Andy mentioned, I do t know of a competitor that offers a package that makes that much power, but we definitely stand behind our work.

I miss that car!

The car below is the highest HP ZL1 we've done to date. It made slightly more than our former shop car.

Thank you

Rick LeBlanc

Having just put over 2500 + miles from Michigan to Arizona , the ZL1 is screaming for me to put it on the strip and if the conditions are right tonight; it will be

Rick & Andy, thanks for a great build
