Can't recall discussion on this comparo. Wonder if a good tune, CJ intake, a good weight reduction diet, and OR exhaust & headers, improved brakes would narrow the 2s gap until heat soak starts to take its toll on the Chevy? Sure, they did a showroom stock comparison, and I've just mentioned a bunch of mods to help the LS catch up to the higher tech ZL1, so it wouldn't be an apples to apples comparison. Still, I wonder how many ZL1's you'll see on the track, and if so, with what kind of mods?

$8000 worth of mods would even the field.

Likely. Furthermore nothing could take away the ugly of the Camaro (subjective) or the feeling you have the visibility of a WW2 tank (objective).
