Smile Your performance enhancements to the 1LE

What are you planing to do to your next 1LE to increase HP, torque & lower weight?

A drop in AEM filter (already have it ) & SLP Blackwing Intake Tube. That's it.

The car is great how it is, and from experience I know once you start modding you can't stop, haha.

Cold air intake , american racing long tube headers , x pipe and high flow cats and a tune. Keep it pure and simple and take no prisoners on the track road racing.

Engine cover off, hood insulation off, intake manifold cover off, trunk stripped, rear seats out with delete kit, air pump out, spare cover out, trunk lid insulation out, floor mats out, CAI intake depending on class rules etc. And never more than half tank of fuel!

The suspension will most likely benefit from a few tweaks as well.

CAI, LT headers, tune, lightened flywheel and braille battery. Not sure if i will swap over my racing brake rotors or not. I would like to install a cam but i think i will hold off and wait for the gen 6 Z28.

What braille battery do you have? Been looking into those a bit.

I'm a fan of natural aspirated engines. If I was to get one, I would just make it an even 500hp and that's it. Any higher and you will need to match the suspension again. This 1LE suspension is plenty enough for the LS3. If anything, adjustable sway bars or higher spring rates might be able to handle power increases. Oh, and don't forget the bushings...a must.

On my previous car, instead of getting the braille battery, I went and bought the Deka one, same battery and it was significanty cheaper. Look into the Deka ones. However, keep in mind that if you don't daily drive, you do have to keep them on a charger. I drove the 15lbs Deka through all of Michigan winter (daily driver) but then as soon as I garaged it for weekend duty after three days it wouldn't start from sitting.

Really good weight mod though.

I dont have one yet. I was listing what i woul get for the 1LE. I hear they haveno trouble cranking the car compared to the OEM battery, the only issue is if you have multiple starts in a short period of time.

I am going cam and CAI first... if I decide that isn't enough, then headers as well. Also racing grade brake fluid and a track ready alignment.

I will stay N/A for a little while. I plan on ordering a 2013/14 1SS/RS/1LE in SW with the NPP.

I intend on adding to it the following:
RX Catch Can
RX Oil Breather
Engine cover off
Considering rear seat delete
CAI intake with scoop
Ported TB
Kooks, SW, or ARH LT's with HFC's
Tune
Either Port IM or get a Fast IM
Upgrade/Improve already awesome suspension
Upgrade/strengthen transmission
Change out pads and rotors once they wear out
Strengthen the block/heads/rods/etc
Then eventually a whipple s/c with a chiller. Might get a different thermostat too. The s/c will be one of my last mods.

I had the SLP blackwing, not too much to sniff at, better getting a Haltech Yellow jacket if you don't want to tune.

All the lightweight ones aren't really recommended for occasional drivers unless you're willing to keep it on a trickle charger.

If I weren't intent on keeping my current one I'd add CTS-V/ZL1 brakes, pedders supercar or BC ER coilovers, and probably headers cause it needs to sound like a real car. Then I would race the crap out of it and proceed to find/break the weakest link and upgrade as necessary.

I think it should have had the brakes/coilovers from the factory although it would have driven cost up another $2k probably.

I'm not looking for huge gains....

I just want to clean up the look of the intake by removing the stock elbow with the sound resonators. The SLP Blackwing looks oem, and it is a composite tube which is great for keep IAT's cooler.

Thanks for the input though. It's nice to hear peoples opinions who actually tried it out.
