All of my rides get modded. This is one has got a LOT of potential. ZL1 is so many great attributes rolled into one machine.

My crew simply refers to this car as "The 1".  The combination of Stabilatrak, Magnetic Ride, and 1LE suspension with the electric steering makes this car deceptively adept at handling. And it brings manageable power to street, course or track !

This build is called "Operation : Into Darkness".  Phase 1 is designed to make a low 11s to high 10s daily driver street car.

I thought I was retired from the game...

This is the best  Ghost EVER... Faster than G3... handles with Quick Silver... turns heads like G13... rides smoother than G4... and more rare than  G1... has every practical option there is...  However the head turns are not quite curiosity or enthusiasm. This ZL1 in all black induces fear.  I like that.


It is very cool that my stock parts are mod parts for other cars.  I remember when Ford 9" was the BIG rear end.  The 1 comes stock with 9.9" of rear end securing the half shafts.  Now that is getting with the performance program !!


Click on picture to the left to see how ZL1 showed it's track dominance by beating Ford's vaunted Ford Mustang Laguna Seca. 


Like OBrien said..."You are 3 good mods away from a 10's car".

When I added the power I determined that I needed some more downforce and grip.  Not a problem.  I get all NASCAR about overall performance of my vehicles. So... Eibach lowering  springs, GMPP blade spoiler, and Nitto Extreme  NT05 315/35/ZR20 drag radials address those neeeds quite well.  Nitto NT555-R G2s , 285/30/ZR20s in front give it CRAZY grip and more response handling. We then went to Hawk Performance STREET 5.0 brake pads front and rear under the 6 / 4 Brembo pistons.

In my lightly modded LSA power plant, I run...
