    Well the car is running great and all seems good so far.
    But I’m not liking the car anymore, this thing gives me major anxiety all the time now because I’m just expecting the worst again.
    So I’m going to sell it, as is. Not going to part it out.

    I’ll still post the fuel system info later lol.

    I feel you there and don't blame you, especially since you have another fun car, really no downside. I couldn't even have fun and flog my car anymore as I just assumed it would break even though I spent so much time making sure it didn't Once you get to that point it's time to move on I think. After two motors and a head rebuild I called it quits. Selling it is hard though, mainly as it's tough to see it go (emotionally I mean) and also tough to price it right so it does sell as you will always believe it's worth more. The people who buy heavily modded cars can suck a lot too as you will have to deal with a lot of cheap ass people that really can't afford the car.

    Sorry, don't mean to put a downer on your next steps.. I totally see where you are coming from and I think you did the community a big service by recording everything you did on forums so good work there.

    Good luck moving forward man!

    I'm _super_ close to doing the same thing.

    Drove another ZL1 1LE this month and I am really falling in love with that car.

    The ZL1 is high high on my list. The part I’m now debating is wether to get a “regular” ZL1 or non 1LE and use that for Mexico/roll/drag fun and track the ZR1 or vice versa.
    I’m not doing a million track days next year, I’d be surpriced if I can make 10

    I can only imagine the ZL1 awesomeness level. I drove an SS and that is what I was planning ot buy next, with a small chance of going ZL1 but now with building our "dream home" and a new baby etc cars are off the list for a while.

    Basically I am saying the ZL1 has got to be good if it's a better SS I vote yes on that.

    The SS i drove felt pretty good, it didn't feel evo like but it didn't feel like a sedan either, felt great. I thought the newer alpha platform ones were more like 3700... but I can't remember now.

    They’re not that heavy. Also not much of a issue with 650ft/lbs at 3k rpm lol

    Obviously haven't driven one if you are making that statement. Way faster than my Evo around the same track, 100% bone stock.

    And the Zl1 1LE weighs 38XXlbs. SS weighs 36XXlbs

    Don’t know man, I haven’t seen any Evo X capable of this:
    https://youtu.be/t4zSIVpVMaw

    Doesn’t seem like a elephant around the track. Only negative I see is all the aero slows it down big time in the straights

    Right there with ya man. Mine has sat in the garage for almost the entire time I've had it back. The anxiety I have while driving it far exceeds the enjoyment (if any) that it brings. Unfortunately it would be nearly impossible to sell it at this time of the year in Missouri so I'll probably wait until spring to put it up FS.

    It's a total track weapon. Anyone that says different hasn't driven one.

    The thought of taking it to the track bone stock with the only changes being brake fluid and alignment and putting down much faster lap times than my Evo 10 currently does without all the heartache and missing half the year of track days every year because something expensive broke and industry people taking a billion years just to do their job, sounds pretty darn appealing.

    That 10 speed auto is pretty badass too! Check out stangkilr's ZL1. I think it made 900-1000rwhp pretty easily. Untouched engine if I'm not mistaken.

    I raced 1 with the 10 speed auto... oh my fucking God. There isnt a lunch control in the world that beat that thing off the line. By the time I was at the top of 1st gear, he was about 3 car lengths In front. And was already in 4th gear... things are scary fast..

    It also had a higher stall lol.

    I truly can't even imagine taking some of those entries at those speeds. 166 coming into a turn is NUTS. Taking a sweeping turn at 166 is downright INSANE.

    Buddy of mine just parted his X out to get a ZL1 1LE and f'n loves it. Faster lap times than his X on day 1 and was still getting use to a RWD. I guess now we can add Camaro to the list of fast Vettes everyone chases.
