  1. #1 Default Project ZL1 
    Hello everyone ! i recently acquired on of my favorite looking cars of all time, a Camaro yes the american car that is a transformer. But to me it was this car that was one of the turning points to send general motors in the right direction. With its retro styling combined with modern touches this was far from the gm we were used to. I purchased a 2012 ZL1 from Porsche of Norwell with just over 4700 Miles on the odometer, The previous owner had specced out almost every option fitted including clear bra and the special floor mats. overtime i would like to make this a bit more personal and have already purchased and done some minor performance and cosmetic enhancements but overall this car is a wonderful benchmark for the modern day muscle car and there is not much i would change from the factory. i plan on using it at auto X events as well as some track days

    Here are some of the things that i have already done

    Roto-Fab CAI

    Valentine One Radar Detector with Blendmount hardwired into mirror

    Phastek HID Fog lights and Daytime running lights

    Phastek Blacked out emblems

    Window tints and tinted side markers

    Removed Fuse for Exhaust flaps to make things a bit louder

    Future plans

    Harness Bar

    Hotchkis Competition swayers with end links

    Racetech Harness

    Blinder Laser Jammers


    Before Tints


    After Tints

    I love it it's comfortable when you want it to be and by a press of a button it becomes as solid as a touring car. What do you currently drive now?

    i love that M156 Motor one of the all time greats! i drive a old 1993 400E benz as my daily and will drive it to the ground

    does yours by any chance have a lsd from the factory? i remember reading that is a hard option to find in the sedans wondering if it is easier to find in coupes

    yes it does have the factory lsd option. It has every option but leather seats for some reason kind of odd.

    The disease runs deep, relapses often, not looking for a cure, just another sick bastard to share it with.
