cam and s/c SS or used ZL1

Could a SS with small Whipple S/C run with ZL1?
If all goes well, that will be my options soon. I love my SS but I want more power. Any opinions?

You will have more hp and tq than the ZL-1 for sure. But the ZL-1 is still a better car with a better suspension. So I think you may end up neck and neck.

Remember, the SS as it is not built for FI running a 10.7/10.4 CR. Though there are a lot of us doing it with great results (read: great tunes). But there is the potential for disaster.

Whereas the ZL1 is built with boost in mind and has plenty pf room to grow! Just a thought... And NO, I wouldn't give up my SC SS for a ZL1!

Why buy a used ZL1? It's probably been beat on.

Dump the SS and get a new ZL1.

I did and now I'm happy happy happy.
