Thank you all for the answers. I didn't mean to start a kurfluffle, and I haven't dyno tested my car as of yet. I think people are reporting around ~370 hp the stock LS3 on the dyno, so getting it...

I use third for passing on the highway. It's f-ing awesome!!! Watch out for the 5-oh because you'll be in arrest-territory quickly.

Mine has been called "Hoos-maro" (like a shortened hoosier-camaro).

I also stay out of blind spots. BUT, I once passed a semi (quickly) to avoid his blind spot, and got laser tagged and ticketed for doing 71 in a 60.

I find this description accurate. My SS LS3 throttle response was slower than my 2006 CRV. VTC on 5, and all is good. I personally believe it increases the rate at which the TB responds.

Never smoked in the Camaro, but switched to vaping January 2013. Ended a 35 year 1.5 pack a day habit. Vape in the Camaro ALL THE TIME, and no lingering smells.
