I just bought a Silverado from my dealer recently, he reminded me that they are selling me a Z28 when they are available...I told him when they have an allocation, will talk...my Pedderized 1LE is pretty fast, not sure I need to buy a Z28, but may want one anyway...

It is my job to stay a step ahead of the best that GM allows engineering to design and build. Can we Pedderise a Z/28 -- just at and see what what we have for the Z/28

You're safe Pete...since yours is likley the only 5th gen, plus maybe Detroit Speeds that will get to play at Optima...thinking I will be building something with an LS7 rather than buying the Z/28...

That DSE Camaro is one hellofa piece!

I like the sound of an LS7. Put the dry sump in the trunk behind the passenger side tail light while on the scales where it belongs

My dealer says no dealer should be taking deposits until allocations are confirmed. They just have a list (which I am #2) but say that no money should exchange hands until allocations are established. Pretty sure this is the "standard" policy as I have gone through this before with other cars. I am not giving anyone money on a car I don't know the cost of and even if they will have one to sell.

Doesn't really matter whether money exchanges hands or not with my dealer.

It's all good..

How do you improve on a MultiDynamic Spool Valve setup?

There is no reason to modify the ZL1.
The 1LE is such a great track car it doesn't need any mods.
The Z/28 is the perfect track car and can't be improved upon.

The Z/28 does not come with these.



What you get is a strut that looks much like all other 5th Generation OEM struts with vastly superior operation. It is fixed valving that was tuned at the factory and operates like the four way adjustable coilover in the picture. Mark Steilow and the Camaro TEAM are very bright people with incredible levels of expertise in setup. They have done outstanding work on the Z/28, but they left a few crumbs for us

So are the guys at Porsche, but people still buy stuff like this



for cars like this.
