A properly tuned 6L80e can completely change the way a car drives, in a good way.

It's even better if you can find a good tuner that knows how to use the HPtuners 6L80 tables. EFI Live is great...

A lot of companies are jumping ship with Comp and going over to Cam Motion. After 3-4 years of consecutive failures it was about time.

Once I left Comp I tried Bullet, Isky, Lunati, etc. Cam...

Aren't you glad I talked you into taking the plunge? :D

Due to the VVT having to be removed for this camshaft option, it's tough to make it as cost efficient as the LS3 package is. We'd need to pull the heads as well so the labor aspect would be similar...
