Tim, thank you, thank you, thank you!

That was the "Holy Grail" of LS3 info I've been searching for!

Excellent tech for you motor geeks!

That was cool. I finally learned the answer to something that had been rattling around in my head for a long time: 6.2L = 376 cubic inches. It's bugged me for years. Stupid metric system. I like my displacement described in cubic inches, as God intended.

LOL! Like you, I refer to my motors in cubic inches most of the time. The metric system is here to stay, so we need to 'conform'.

Try this: 1 liter = 61.0237441 cubic inches

A little confusing, is the LS3 and L99 the same motor? Just the L99 has the AFM.Im torn between man or auto, because the wife likes driving the auto. I just want the POWER.If the L99 can be tuned ill give in to the auto.
