Are there really only 5 specific ZL1 mods?

So far it seems that the only ZL1 specific mods are

Mild to Wild Switch
CAI
Super Chiller
Long Tubes
hyrdodipping/actual carbon engine cover.

I don't see any threads about pulleys or anything else specific to the ZL1. No blower cams or anything else being advertised.

Are the wheel offests different for ZL1 wheels then SS wheels to clear the brakes or will all wheels that fit the SS fit the ZL1?

Are there really only 5 mods specific to the ZL1?

Ok, there are packages, but nothing really a la carte. The last one is headers, heat exchanger and CAI, which are listed already.

I guess I'm used to there being a bunch of companies all advertising lots of packages instead of just a handful. I figured there would be threads about multiple pulleys, but no one really seems to say branding or anything, aside from the metco pulley. Thanks for the links. I'm glad it's not as bare as I was thinking it was.

All of those have been discussed many times.

You've been here for 6 years and have over 16,000 posts and haven't seen all the threads on these subjects??

And yes SS wheels will work on the ZL1. I've done it.

honestly other than the CAI almost everthing can be shared.

on the flip side every aftermarket part out there is on the market right now many of them just work with SS or CTS-V so depending on the part it is not really "zl1 specific"

1. upper pulley
2. lower pulley
3. longtubes
4. custom cam
5. head porting
6. blower porting
7. injectors
8. TB's
9. engine internals
10. aftermaket heads.
11. wheels
12. suspension parts
13. clutches
14. converters

all this stuff is availible right now. you can build 700whp zl1 with blinking and 1000hp if you want to swap internals and blower.

I've just been browsing the ZL1 forums for a few days now. We have plenty of moderators that are in here more regularly, so I choose to spend my time in other areas. I'm still looking for people who are selling things like pulleys a la carte instead of just as package deals. That was my question.

That's correct, I didn't google because I was looking for threads re: mods.

I appreciate the effort, but please make sure you're responding to the actual question and not just trying to make someone look bad and doing it wrong.

Jannetty Racing, which may very well be my next stop since my CAI and Headers are on now. It's pulley time

Thanks. This is what I was looking for. I guess I'll need to start googling since there are very few on the forums about it.
Jannety racing has a program where if you buy mods from him he tunes you car for free with upgrades. I went with him.

CAI, TB, Pulley really wakes this car up for pretty cheap (~$1400-1600). there are some good charts at weapon x and lingenfelter that break down the boost and blower RPM for the car.

basically the sweet spot based on the nubmers is 2.55 upper with 10% lower. puts your right to the edge of the recomended blower RPM range.

my advice to anyone is start with CAI, TB and then either 2.55 upper with ported snout or 10% lower. then you can build from there without needing to buy anything different later on.

now if you can headers, injectors, both pullies then this car really starts to fly without a "ton" of labor or teardown.

Zr1 cam $109 35whp is another thing I was considering because I am cheap.

then on the headers in my mind the best choices are stainless power budget $699 and dynatech ~$1200 if want a more premium header.

The LS9 cam swap is not just $109, you have to change a few related timing components (cam gear, and tensioner is recommended by a ton of builders) so keep that in mind.
