This. For the price I guarantee most people would want the ZL1. Not many people would choose an aftermarket SS over a gm manufactured car such as the 1LE or ZL1. Plus you get the GM warranty. Just something to think about.

Sounds like you already decided. The slp fits your wants perfectly. The 1le is meant to handle and does not have a bump in power over a regular ss.

Maybe not, but it does have better gearing and lighter wheels, which will give a slight edge over a stock SS IMO.

I agree it will have a slight edge but it sounded like op wanted a bump in power and the slp delivers on that very well.

Put 4 grand into the motor. 6 into wheels tires/suspension. Gaurantee you would eat zl1s for lunch both on the dragstrip and autocrossing. Have a local here that has maggie/headers/pulley/tune/cam Stock bottom end 720 rwh and its been good for a year now. But were at 4000ft elevation so that brings the actual hp numbers down. LS3 good for 650 rwh all day.

Screw 2010s.
All cars have some issues, I currently have 2010 SS and have not had one issue with it. Yes, Chevy improved the camaro over the next few years but to each his own. For most of those changes I can make them.

And then we get to SLP, pretty good car (camaro) and SLP has made there changes to make it better, so add some suspension upgrades and I will be right were I want to be.

Dude...that is F'ing HOT!
1LE? Thats not even a decision in my book.

Thats a BOATLOAD of car for the price.
Brand New
Supercharged
Serialized SLP
Brembo GT Brakes (The real ones)
Painted stripes
I've seen the build sheets on those cars...
Highly optioned cars all of them.
On and on and on...

You go!

Totally agree...

You still have the complete warranty on the SLP plus 575HP and all the extras SLP puts in their "production" camaros. MyLink and a ZL1 wheel dont balance out what you get in the SLP (well, I do like my HUD..)

I forgot the Brembo GT brakes. Good pieces and makes it a really good deal. Oh actually Mike2SS those Brembos are crap. Get the ZL-1 brakes and sell me the Brembos for a good price .

Get the SLP. I got the SLP ZL 427 and then added a Edelbrock supercharger and some other goodies and I'm at 585 RWHP now. Offer a lot lower for it. I know there is at least 30% mark up in the SLP stuff..

Got the SLP, went on our first drive sunday to a car club get together (over 75 cars) to drop off canned goods for the homeless.

Love it and it has so much TQ!
