I'm okay with the stock diffuser. I'd like the rockers, but my undercarriage already slightly touches when I enter the garage :(
Yesterday I wound up ordering some more vinyls for my next attempt. Also ordered 1LE badges from roger, with yellow in them.

Actually, I'm contemplating clear bra'ing my lower quarters. Thoughts?
If you clear bra anything clear bra the gill area. You will thank me after your car doesn't have chips all over the quarter panels.

So Tram, do you miss your matte black hood at all? I am seriously considering taking it off the next time I wash my car. I think the affect/contrast is mostly lost on the darker colors(i.e. Black, AGM, BRM). I like the fact that there is no glare, but other than that its just a hassle to keep clean and will look just as good without it. Thoughts from you after removing?

Much easier to care for now. IMO car is less cartoon-ish without it. Although with all the new hype from the mt video I did miss it for a second yesterday waiting at the light next to a GT mustang. Then again everybody who think they know something about cars complement me on my zl1.

HA! Yeah people have no clue, they see the ZL1 wheels and just assume. Thanks for the feedback. I am still undecided, mainly because once its off, its off. I would never pay to have one put back on.

It is great to hear your dealership was able to find the culprit. Please let us know if you have any other concerns or questions.

Brandon, seems you're and Internet marketing manager for Chevy. Have they ever considered supporting / sponsoring podcasts? Check out the TWiT network. I listen to three of their shows weekly. Ford is coming across as cool, hip and innovative. I started this journey because of Ford because of adverts by Ford on TWiT. I went and looked at the Shelby and Boss 302 first. And that happened because of Ford's advertisement on the TWiT network. They are really playing up how electronically advanced Ford is. Chevy's lack of presence is a market mistake IMHO.

I was thinking behind the rear wheel. Are you serious about the gills? From the front tires spitting things up?

Not to downplay your Bad Ass 1LE, but I think many 1LE's will put down the same numbers or similar. I think with the lighter wheels, the performace exhaust, the electronic power steering, etc these things all add up to add RWHP to our cars. There is another memeber who says he will dyno his 1LE within a week, so I am excited to see his numbers and expect similar results.

Lets hope... the only other that I am aware of was SUX and his did like 378 which is right in line for a SS LS3.

Oh really? I didnt know he did a dyno before but with all his mods I guess thats a given to give him a baseline number. Maybe it is a freak then!!!

The gills take the most damage on the 5th gen. I am wanting to clear bra mine in the gills also. Behind the rear wheels dont seem to "chip" as bad as the gills do.

Very nice! Now get that crappy name off your car. They don't deserve free advertisement.

I've got some gill stripes coming in soon, among other things...if I was going to clear bra the gills, should I do that first? Or get the bra after putting the stripes on?

My understanding is that the bra is removable. I need to talk to shop to verify but I understand you should do this before track time and after fixing the paint and sealing the car.

Maybe someone knows for sure.
