Whats amazing to me is my 69 is has the numbers matching 396/350hp motor still in it NO power adders , Cams or anything just plain old American Factory Big Block fun....... I have put 87 in the car before and it seems to idle rough.
It seems like the car has a miss but when I put the normal 93 octane pump gas in her as most of us do in late model Camaro's you can really hear and feel the difference in how she idles.....Cam sounds better.

Even better I can drive about 20 minutes outside of the city limits where the emmisions are not so strict and less environmental friendly ( where they dont add the addative for cleaning air ) and It really Runs/idles better difference between that gas and gas in the city pumps.....City Gas looks green the other looks more clear

I'd also like to know if the Camaro can take E85, since there's an E85 station right near me.

Theres one on Route 45 in Spring Valley. Its a Getty station. All the way down 45 almost to Jersey. Funny thing is if you have the extra ten minutes and go to Jersey you can get 93 for only a couple cents more than e85

The L99 heads are definitely going soon. Is there better heads than the LS3 to replace them with?

Where did you get the ls3 and l99 have different heads? I do know the differences are the l99 has valve cut reliefs in the pistons and vvt that really is just a cam sproket and different lifters from what I have read to do the l99 to ls3 conversion all you do is get rid of the vvt change lifters no real big deal the l99 has less compression simply cause of the valve reliefs in the pistons as far as the reliefs in the pistons well both ls3 and l99 have crap for piston and rods the best change in these are just that piston and rod change not heads.
