As observations of clusters through their SZ imprint on the CMB becomes more routine, it is now feasible to add this signal to the set of observables we use to study galaxy clusters. Using the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich Array (SZA), we are pursuing a variety of programs to investigate the correlation between cluster properties and their SZ signatures. I will present early results from these comparisons. The SZA is also a unique tool for resolved SZ imaging as part of the 23-element CARMA interferometer. I will discuss our initial experiment with heterogeneous array interferometry later this year and the future capabilities of the full array.
