Using my iPhone, my best run has been 0-60 in 4.51 seconds. Usually run about 4.8-5.1 as my tires are starting to get pretty well seasoned now.

For most people, a car is the second most expensive thing they will ever buy.

Thanks for the info.

I'm OK with giving up warranty on it (to the extent that most aftermarket conversions only offer warranties on new cars). Strictly speaking, I don't plan on doing anything...

Oh, I didn't mean to say I would do it myself. What I meant was whether a Callaway shop could do a Callaway "conversion" on an existing car or whether Callaways could only be purchased "new". (Say,...

Yeah, I'd at least spring for the power window hood. Delightfully tacky and delightfully awesome.

For the record, I haven't done a tune. But the OP was asking about how to convert from 'L99' to 'LS3'. Some people don't like AFM for the sound (it doesn't bother me).

Honestly? L99s don't really...

I think it's mostly the cam.

That being said, it's pointless. An L99 _IS_ an LS3, just slightly tweaked (and it has VVT. Vtec, yo). If you want to make up the 26 hp and get rid of AFM, an ECU tune...

In about 60 degree weather I pulled my best yet: 4.51 0-60.

That was S-mode, TC-off (stability on), no brake torquing, just let off the brake and stab go.

Effectively they are equivalent.

Take a look at the fast list on the drag strip forums, it's a pretty even sprinkling of LS3s and L99s.
