Hellion twins? 2SS? Why would you want to do that? Trade in that is?

Exactly like you said, the ZL1 has been stuck in my head since I first saw a picture of one, I can't wait to have a ZL1 in my garage.

To be honest: after two months of ownership and only 700 miles on her, I am ready to part with my ZL1. Maybe I'm getting too old, I don't know, but I'm just not feeling it anymore. My 400HP '68 Plymouth RR brings me more joy as it currently sits than the ZL1 does and it's a work in progress............LOL!



My tentative plan right now is to garage it (don't put miles on her) and trade it in for a C7. I traded out of my C6 for the ZL1 and regretting it more everyday. I know your asking about an SS vice a ZL1, but if your car is putting down over 600rwhp, why bother? IMHO; the ZL1 is too underpowered for the cost and it does have issues. My car has a mysterious metal clanking sound coming from the underside, just below the center console, that can't be isolated. Darn it!

Who knows what things may come!

OP I'm in the same boat. Thinking of trading my 2010 SS for a ZL-1. My 2010 is not boosted, so I don't know if I'd rather put an SLP on it, or get a Z and be done. Decisions...decisions.

Must be nice! Haha All of you wanting to upgrade from a 2ss to zl1. I drive a 1lt and after a year and half I am still in love with it. Of course it would be nice to own a Zl1 but right now in my life its not worth it.

I say drive your 2ss to the dealership...drive the Zl1 and drive your 2ss again. See which one gives you that feeling you are looking for. Your heart will tell you were to go from there... Good luck and keep us posted

I guess for me it will come down to how much I can get for my car in a trade.

You will never get good money out of a modded car on a trade. Most dealers take value away for that. You have to either put the car back to stock, sell the parts(still at a huge loss) or find someone that wants a modded car like yours and is willing to pay to have a car already done.

Curious minds want to know what you have in it? If you don't mind?
