ZZ Performance started up in 2001 manufacturing performance parts for General Motors’ 3800-series vehicles, such as the Pontiac Grand Prix and Chevrolet Monte Carlo. They’ve since expanded their business to work on Ecotec four-cylinder motors and will outline their planned tuning packages for four-cylinder Cadillac ATS models at the SEMA Show in November.
You’ll find many vendors trailering their show cars to SEMA, but ZZP says they build “real cars, not trailer queens,” so they will be driving their tuned-up ATS from Wyoming, Michigan all the way to Las Vegas. They’ll be hard to miss driving down the freeway, as the car has had a Reth aerodynamics kit installed along with a Reth mesh grille and an Avery Dension charcoal metallic vinyl wrap.
Under the hood is where ZZP’s own modifications take place. The 2.0-liter turbocharged Ecotec engine has been upgraded with a larger BorgWarner turbocharger, a twin-scroll manifold, a high-flow downpipe and mid-pipe, a full cat-back exhaust system, a ZZP silicone intake kit, a ZZP front mount intercooler, an E85 FlexFuel kit and a dyno tune. The company says the horsepower is classified, but has plans to extract up to 600 horsepower from the 2.0-liter motor with their top-of-the-line ZZP-Spec performance package.
Other modifications include a ZZP racing brake kit, a BC Racing coil-over suspension kit, 20-inch Vossen VF-S wheels, an Eibach anti-rollbar kit and new Recaro Sportster CS Leather seats. We’ll be keeping a sharp eye out for this one when we kit the SEMA show floow next month, so be sure to stay tuned for more information and photos.
