With all due repect to the OP, modifying camaros has been one of the greatest reasons for the great following camaro has enjoyed. Ease, cost and part interchangabilty has been an intrigal part of the camaro ownership experience since its inception. Heck where do you think the Yenkos came from? They are not worth less today because somebody copied what they did! The factory or dealer prepped cars will always hold their value moreso than a customers modified car. Dropping a big block, that you found in the junkyard, in your unassuming stock straight six was what enthusiasts lived for back in the day. Not to mention the racing that helped improve the product, aftermarket or OEM. To move the camaro from its pedestrian roots to an elitist crowd will only help bring its demise. GM please keep the camaro affordable and mod friendly, this has and always has been its misson. Be happy you have a factory ZL1 and let the rest of us dream that we can build one close to looks and performance on a budget.

Why would anyone care about cloning a zl1 is my question.

a zl1 is basically a waste of a supercharger.

And in the end, it's still just a SS ...

Z-28 LIVES!

The 2014 Camaro Z/28 uses the LS7 6.2-liter V8 from the Corvette Z06, rated at 500 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The package includes a cooler for the rear differential and carbon-ceramic brakes. The Z/28 is street legal but is designed for racetrack duty.

General Motors engineers worked to take weight out of the Camaro Z/28. It weighs 100 pounds less than the Camaro SS and 300 pounds less than the Camaro ZL1, which runs a supercharged V8. There is no carpet, a one-speaker sound system and thinner glass.
