ZL1 Diff swap?

Has anyone installed the Zl1 upgrade kit offered by GM? If so was it a compete kit? Was there any modifying of the stock k member ? What kind of HP are you putting down & what driving habits and or drag racing have been done with this kit?

I have seen a bunch of cars around dfw are with these. I had the lingenfelter setup in my car. I opted for the gm engineered parts. Zl1 3.73 going in my car. I talked to the gm guys down at c5 fest about the development of the zl1 diff. I was told that they were looking at a 9 inch variation at first. But ended up with the cast iron cased 9.9 inch. Which they had never broke in all the testing on the zl1. Hard to beat this setup. That is why i chose this option myself.

The only thing is the instructions sucked! It was missing a lot off torque specs and it said nothing about a different yoke which was included. You have to use a puller to get it of also. And you have to pull the spindles you can't just swing them out of the way. No modifications needed to fit the diff

I have never saw or heard of anyone busting a carrier or an axle. I know a bunch of guys running these in ss cars and zl1's and some legit 9 second 1000+ rwhp cars without a hickup as of yet.

I swapped out my SS for ZL1 driveline about 8 months ago. I am making close to 700 rwhp and have no problems, yet.

Nice this is a little more affordable option than a g force or Other 9" setups

I have been running the zl1 drivetrain on my car for almost a year. Manual with ~650RWHP. Install was easy with no modifications needed. Much cheaper than the other options out there... This is a very underrated mod IMHO.
