I would bet my crazy @ss dog there is 20-30 hp in a CAI and nice free flowing exhaust. the LS3 is a killer platform for further improvements.

I think that is a reasonable assumption.

LS2 and LS1 engines were the same way.

I have a 2002 SS. It says in the manual to use 90 octane but that you can use anything 87 or better. When the gas went up I tried the 87 and found that I got about 2/3 of the mileage with it. The engine de-tunes itself and becomes less efficient. I do not know what part of the country you are from, but in the Boston area the differences in price between 87/89/93 is abou $.10 per gallon with each upgrade so if you are buying a high performance V-8 put in the high test.

I'd never put 87 in one of my vehicles. Especially if it was a brand new top of the line SS or Z28.

^^^^ same here. I don't like using anything less on my Civic even though it says 90 or better. 93 on all my vehicles makes the engine last longer, even though I'm getting rid of it

I've always used 93 in everyone of my cars. I keep them for several years and there's not much difference in the price anyway.
