    Nothing really.
    Hood, spoiler, ram air.
    SS's usually cost more.

    Do you guys think it would be better getting a Z28 with less miles than an SS with more mile for the same price?

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Stock rims and tires are 17" for SS vs 16" for Z28. Different shocks were an option also. SS could also have different lid and exhaust depending on what was marked and what (if any) work SLP did to it.

    Also, 2001 & 2002 LS1 cars (SS & Z28) have LS6 intake and better exhaust systems that 98-00.

    If you plan to substantially modify it, get the Z28.

    Not that hard to do, long tubes, moderate cam and tuning will get you to that mark.

    In regards to the SS vs Z28 it's just a badge with about a 15 questionable hp difference. Alot of people online dispute that issue. I've looked around and I can only shake my head in confusion. I don't know who is right about the 15 hp. If you plan to park it in your garage and never drive it then you want an SS. That's the numero uno badge.

    Long tubes, true duals with an X-pipe all dumped at the axle, a Volant CAI and dyno tune netted my otherwise stock (3.73 gears) LS1 343 rwhp and 357 rwt. Add a cam and you'll be there.
