Seriously thinking of lower my compression and adding a zl1 fuel pump. But then again the tune may be a issue.

Not sure how close we were to maxing out the lift pump on the LLT, but can't hurt to be safe. Lowering the CR with forged pistons is probably the biggest thing to make it safe.

Track rental is tentatively scheduled for next Wednesday (1/31/2013). Ryan's driving it around for the next couple of days to make sure there are no issues. Hope this pic of the new stripes will hold everyone over until we have some results.

Car looks awesome. Did you lower only the front though? And what wheels are those? Are they smaller than 20 in? If so they look really good on the car.

If I'm not mistaken those are the wheels whiteside was selling. I think they are 18" wheels

Didn't lower it. The 2012+ have the some shared suspension parts with the SS and ride about 0.5" lower.

And no, now they aren't enough traction.

Those COPO stripes? thats actually fitting! haha

So ok, im trying to get a basic simple picture here, the only difference we see between this and the LLT is the ability to tune and fuel? I know you guys lowered CR to be safe. Just trying to remember. figure out what the major differences are between this build and the last and why we got those beauitful jaw dropping numbers
