  • Travis' 14 ZL1 build

    Here is my car. This is my 3rd 5th gen Camaro, and my 2nd ZL1. Seems to be a decent car, currently has a little over 700hp the way it sits.

    Mods:

    9.17 Lower pulley with ATI damper
    ID850 injectors
    Kooks LT Ceramic headers with cat delete
    LS7 throttle body
    Cold air industries CAI
    Expansion tank for blower
    160 thermostat
    Mighty Mouse catch can
    TR7IX plugs
    Dyno tuned by RDP Performance in Painesville Ohio

    I haven't decided in the next year or so to trade it, or build it some more....only time will tell...

    Good Numbers for just a few bolt ons. I hear ya in the trade in IDK if I already had one that be a tough decision.

      yeah, making the power wasn't bad. I have a larger lower pulley for it, which would be good for drag racing, but it was starting to build too much heat for a road course. If I do any thing else, it will be a cam, larger lower pulley with some good cooling mods. My biggest complaint is, it is a tight fit for me with a helmet on. If I had it to do over again, I would have gotten it without a sunroof.

        You do Flex Fuel yet? I would consider that an option for sure.

          I haven’t. It would be a good option, I was also looking at meth injection.

            Defiantly worth doing these days, back when you had to change calibrations and run one or the other I didn't find it a viable option.
            The DSX Tuning flex fuel kit is the original plug and play solution to adding flex fuel on Gen IV/Gen V GM V8 vehicles.  Use these kits to add the ability to run anywhere from straight gasoline to straight ethanol as well as reveal the true power potential of your setup.  Forced induction scenarios especially benefit f

                Solid numbers, I’m impressed. Mustang or dyno jet?

                  Thanks. It was actually a dyno dynamics dyno. Tuner said it reads a little lower than a mustang dyno. It read 570RWHP, and estimated 707 at the engine.

                    I’m surprised there’s something to break hearts worse than a mustang dyno

                      Here is the thing with dyno's it's all in how the software reads them. quite frankly it's all BS, that's why you see mustang cars wit High HP numbers and High ET's ... and LS with low HP numbers and Low ET's.... it's a great tuning tool though.

                      570 to 707 is a 24% drivetrain loss... which is pretty high.. estimates are from 15-20% on a manual trans. Your definitely getting in the neighborhood.
