^^^ Is that the LT1 SS lid?^^^
I did not know these were interchangeable but it looks better in my opinion.

The default 2300 lid for the C7's is as low or lower than the OEM 15-16 lids.

They could have used larger injectors if that was the case. Look up other manufacturers that are now going to both. We have folks with 1000 hp without double injectors.

It is the LT1 magnuson lid, tuning is Thursday so we'll see how she does. If nothing else the lid looks cooler but i would expect having more volume there will help iat2's a bit (or whatever that temp is called in these engines). Had to trim the cowl just a bit in 2 spots but wasn't bad at all. Local shop offered to trade me lids, my flat lid plus my oem lt4 injectors which was fine with me

The tank is the LMR tank, it's massive. So big that i ended up having to install my catch can down in front of the front driver wheel well next to the horns. Im fine with that though, looks clean and should help keep the smell away from the A/C vent I loose the ability to see the "full" window on the can but I'll drain it frequently enough that won't matter. Came with an extension drain hose that i can pull down when needed

I bet they didnt want to change that part of the fuel system. Why create a new part number when you can share? Arent the injectors the same as the z06?
