Lots of suspension mods. It was the weakest point on the GTO. There was no point to doing the basic bolt-on’s if your suspension wasn’t firm enough to transfer the power to the ground.

If you had more mods, you could have asked for more. I still think you could have done a lot better. I have coil overs, 5 star chrome wheels, K&N airbox,Pioneer nav head unit,12" sub with amp,changed the gauges to blue,just got new SAP grilles for it, need to install them. Kooks long tube headers,off road pipes and kooks afterburner mufflers.

I'll get 15k all day long..

The tail lights on the 2014 and newer kind of remind me of the 66 Impala's tail lights.

Which cars had the L99? Which have the LS3? I think the steering wheel on the 2010-2011 Looks horrible. Is there a best year? I'm not fond of the tail lights on the 2014 and newer, but I could live with it.

I read that you can change the color of the interior lights is that true? I want a heads up display.. Thoughts?
if you're gonna leave it mainly stock, any model will do.

If you're gonna modify

the 1LE comes nicely equipped from the factory with the NPP exhaust and also the ZL1 fuel pump, 3.91 gears in addition to suspension upgrades and those awesome 10 spoke wheels (see the wheels on my car in my sig)

When you start modding, you can literally spend $500 on a set of headers from texas speed and keep your OEM NPP catback in tact (with the fuse pull) and have a nice sounding exhaust


Also, if you ever go with engine modifications and do a cam or supercharger, the 1LE already has the ZL1 fuel pump so you would save yourself a ton of money in fuel system upgrades when it comes time to do the flex fuel and E85.

Most definitely could have gotten more on a private sale. No argument there.

Good luck getting your asking price. I genuinely hope you get what you’re asking for.

Here’s my 2015 1LE:

Thanks for the info Killer.. Good stuff..

Tyestick... I love your car. I want that in black!

I assume you can spot a 1LE by the wheels.. I know you can by the hood also, but its hard to see the hoods in the ads that are posted sometimes.

Would still need to drop some money on new injectors.

agreed, but the fact that half the rear of the car needs to come out to switch the fuel pump is a victory. the ~$200 ZL1 pump cost is not the issue. its the labor to switch it out.

if you already have the ZL1 pump to begin with, you're way ahead of the game. The injectors are are about $360 and the flex kit about $250 to be able to run E85 on a cammed setup and the total install is less than an hour. $500 for the dyno tune and your good. Without the ZL1 pump, add about $200 plus the labor to install it (about 7 hours)

Really depends on how much power he'd plan to make, a lot of ZL1's max out the stock unit and need add boost a pump. I agree it's nice to have the upgraded pump, but it's still may not be the end all solution

Honestly, the 2014 + tail lights are actually starting to grow on me.

Thanks Tincoat for the tip. I don't think some of these dealers advertise the 1LE, because they don't know what it is.

For any of you guys wanting bluetooth music, I recommend getting the SoundBot360. It connects through your aux port and automatically turns on with the car. The sound quality is great. You can mount the controller to an area on the dash, but I just keep it hidden in my console and control my music with my phone.
