    Part 1 - 10 Second ZL1

    We take the ZL1 and put through its paces with a little baseline testing.As a builder of the esteemed HTR series of fifth-generation Camaro SS's with an upcoming ZL1-based series, Redline Motorsports was eager to be on the forefront of testing the 2012 Camaro ZL1. Owner Howard Tanner was lucky enough to purchase one of the first automatic ZL1s, with a handful of modifications already stock-piled in anticipation at Redline's new Pompano Beach, Florida location. A mere 3-hours' drive from GMHTP headquarters, we were on stand-bye waiting for Howard to take delivery and head to Palm Beach International Raceway for a private test session on April 18th. While a sunny 90-degrees with 1,740-feet of DA wasn't exactly ideal, it was definitely a great test for the sophisticated E67 computer and the ZL1's upgraded intercooler system. Prior to the test session, Redline fabricated and dyno tested a cold air intake before returning back to stock as well as installed a 160-degree thermostat, removed the washer tank (for the intake fabrication), and installed a line lock for easier burnouts. All else was as delivered from GM including the tire pressure.

    Why can't I post pics

    It says something about URLs every time I try to post any.

    Knocking the price down to $110 + shipping. These are looking for a good home and for someone to actually use them.

    any write ups on dash removal?

    Funny that the pad is perfectly fine. It's the dash itself that's messed up.

    any write ups on dash removal?

    Is it just the dash pad crack or the whole dash?



    Disconnect the Battery at both posts, let car sit for 30mins to an hour so

    It was changed to 5 days. This was implemented to stop the spammers. May look at changing it...
