I'm a design engineer myself, sometimes you get boxed into a corner and have to do the best you can with what you've got to work with. They put form before function. Tadge hinted at the constraints....

Me three, lol. Just keep an eye on your oil temperature and keep it under 300. And make sure that you have freshly changed full synthetic oil.

The stock brakes are fantastic, those front 6...

Agreed. I don't know about the LS3, but according to the Viper chief engine designer, not-to-exceed limits on the V10 are:

300 F oil

As long as you are comfortably below those,...
