  • NPP in Z51 Package or Not In???

    I searched for the answer/issue but couldn't find it. This is from the ordering guide: "Z51 Performance Package, includes (J55) Z51 performance brakes, (FE3) Z51 performance suspension, (NPP) performance exhaust, (GM7) performance rear axle ratio, (G96) Electronic Limited Slip Differential (eLSD), (T0A) Z51 rear spoiler, front splitter, (XFQ) 245/35ZR19 front and 305/30ZR20 rear, blackwall, high performance tires and (V08) heavy-duty cooling system."

    This is from the pricing guide: " Z51 Package consists of: Michelin® PS4 Performance 3 Season tires, Standard FE3 Performance Suspension, Available FE4 Suspension with Magnetic Ride Control™, Larger 345 mm front and 350 mm rear brake rotors, Extra cooling with additional rear-mounted third radiator, Electronic Limited-Slip Differential, Larger rear spoiler provides up to 400 lbs. of downforce, Performance exhaust results in 495 HP."

    So is the NPP in or out of the Z51 Package? The Pricing Guide doesn't say that its in the Z51 Package, just says "
    Performance exhaust results in 495 HP." However, there isn't a comma after "Z51 Package consists of" before "
    Performance exhaust results in 495 HP." So I would say its in!! I just answered my own question...have to stop reading everything over and over...LOL!!!
