Thanks for posting. Still looking foward to the Boss LS comparisons. The most interesting part of the article is that they were able to get a 4.3 second 0-60 and a 12.7 quarter mile. Looks like the 1LE is a little bit faster than GM is letting on.

Great read & thanks for posting! I'm glad to see the 0-60 and 1/4 mile times were a little quicker than previously noted. Just making me more exciting for when mine gets here

I knew the 1LE would be a notch quicker than the SS.

Now, I'm even more excited!!

I also like that they tested a 1SS/1LE w/o all the bells and whistles other than the NPP exhaust.

Wish it was a Vic Red 1LE though. :(

My '13 ran a time of 12.87 at 113mph Stock. I bet this car will be quicker than even the numbers MT got.

Was fun to read and makes me even more pumped for it.

Also, what is up with the oil cap? Catch can we saw before?

From a friend: "Looks like it makes the pcv draw from a higher location to prevent oil from going into the intake." This is his take on that pic.
