    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.

    My 6 Liter Build

    4 hours? and this is your second time doing it right? By your post I'm guessing you didn't loosen the pan so you could drop the front down a couple inches?

    Failed Inspection? - Low Mileage Waiver - Texas 2014

    I wonder if the canister in the back is clogged?


    Sometimes dirt dobblers build nests in the most damn inconvenience spots.

    More Suspension Replacements/Upgrades Coming Soon. Advice?

    Okay, so I will for sure be getting a poly/roto combo LCA and some bump stops.

    I'm also leaning toward a tunnel brace, but may hold off
