nice!

sounds like my stage 2 of upgrades after my move to midland! i'm thinking about doing a mild cam that will go well with a magnacharger later on along with a higher stall torque converter, tranny cooler, and 3.73 rear gears.

i have a strong feeling i will be making a trip to DFW for ADM to work on my car for this stuff.

LS3 Timing cover
LS3 Timing Gear
LS3 Crank bolt
LS3 Crank seal

Please note that the above parts are all the exact same as the L99.
No need to buy new ones of these!

Sounds like a nice upgrade man!
Be sure to post before/after dyno runs!

You pay attention Very Well



in all im looking about 420 to 430 RWHP which in my opinion is Enough for a car that I want to be able to get in and drive anywhere.

Nothing to agressive but Nothing of a Pushover. The Cam is a Bit more agressive than the Stock LS3 but carries a nice punch.

With a Good Torque converter and some 3.73's she should be pretty stout to say the least.

That should give me a nice little Toy to enjoy Daily

My Daily commute isnt far to work.



No Adam I dont have a Manual in this car. This particular car I wanted a 6speed Automatic. I have done my homework from day 1 and I knew exactlly what I wanted.

Unlike Fords New Commercial I can rightfully say its time to Transform

**** the warranty full speed ahead!

Good luck with your project. My pockets aren't deep enough to get that kind of work done and assume the risk covered by the warranty.

A SC is about the best I can hope for at this point. My turbo idea is fading, at least in the short term, cause I don't think any dealer is going to do warranty work with that configuration.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

I have my reasons why I said to hell with the powertrain warranty. It all came down to a Warranty and a Shifter handle that was damaged from the factory and wasnt covered under warranty.



I'm not heavily modding this car its going to be very much Streetable and I can still drive it anywhere in the US at any time I just want that L99 out and a LS3 in. This is how the car should have come from the factory a LS3 I almost didnt buy a Camaro when I heard the L99 was going in.
