That DW300 is probably not going to be enough for your setup. Roshan at Boost district swears by them but it wasn't enough for my setup, which asides from me using a CTS-V lid instead of the ZL1 lid is identical to what you listed. If and when you end up running out of fuel on the dyno, I personally went with Proxses DW400 kit, it may be worth looking into.

Are you having clearance issues with the ZL-1 lid and your hood or are the lowered motor mounts good enough,or are you running a cowl hood?

Yeah, it still doesn't fit with the lowered mounts. I gotta source a cowl hood!

I had my lid milled down 1/4" the top of it theirs a web site that does that
Yeah, I was real hesitant about milling it! It's designed like that for a reason, and if I messed with it I could just see having to buy another lid.

I think they all milled the lid, I just wasn't sure about doing that. Plus I am looking to make sure it's staying cool and getting enough air under hood. So I'm going to go the cowl hood route. I THINK!

Yeah I've checked out their site, Just don't know if I want to spend $900.00 on another lid or a little more on carbon fiber hood.
