Good point. After watching videos of 1LEs dusting Mustangs and C6es on a road track the 1LE is looking good. (Not all C6es of course).

I need to keep saying to myself "Beware the Corvette Tax" over and over. But even Camaro mods are more expensive than others. There is even a bit of a "Camaro 5th gen tax".

Two local speed shops are trying to dissuade me from the Stingray. One has a no tax $2k cam install/tune with an upgraded valve train and another is giving me a break on a full centrifugal install/tune. Decisions, decisions! But all good.
