Hmm, interesting...
I didn't think the LS3 was gonna use the 3V setup.
I guess I might be wrong!

Yeah, I'm not sure how reliable that is. The L92 2-valve heads are basically LS7 heads, which flow 350cfm already. Why do we need another valve.

Good point.
Also the L76 heads (6.0L) are traditional 2V too and are said to flow 330cfm.

It just occurred to me....

Perhaps the SS will get the LS3...the 2-valve version...approx 425hp (aka car version of L92)

And the Z will get this three valve 475hp motor...

That could be what we're getting instead of the LS7...it would certainly be cheaper, since the hand-built LS7 alone would probably drive the cost of the car over $40K.

Well you better buy it now, because by the time the Camaro comes out they won't be making the LS7 anymore. It will be replaced by something else.

You are REALLY hung up on the LS7.

I have the hook up at Tom Henry's! You are hung up on the whole Z-28 issue too if we are pointing fingers.
