Finally got a ZL1 lid, not sure if I got lucky or if they are finally coming back into stock. But I paid no markup on it so I'm happy, hopefully I can sell my CTS-V lid and maybe even turn a profit :lol:

Going to order a spacer for the lid as well, which will better insulate it from the engine heat, as well as improve airflow to the rear cylinders. Even with the chiller, the lid soaks a lot of engine bay heat and the IAT is slow to react/recover.

I am moving this weekend, so unsure of when I will be able to install but hopefully it won't take too long to get things situated. I'm packing my whole shop into the garage under the new house, but it should work ok. New garage has a dedicated workspace, and workspace + garage sq ft is actually larger than my current shop. Just no ceiling height for traditional lifts. I have a set of quick jacks that I will be using until I can build another proper detached garage/shop.

I also have the next two projects lined up that will be fighting for my free time
-Finish cleaning/prepping the 2013 Caprice V6 I got at auction for sale
-Picked up a 2017 Toyota 86 with a hole in the block. Going to order a replacement motor and install. Then resell
