Problem solved.

And yes it bolts up to the LSA lower. Just needs a different seal inside.


How about we just ask GM to take the LS9 SC, recast the plenum, and stick THAT in Z28?

1900 @ 9.5 psi vs. 2300 @ 10.5 psi; different intakes and exhausts; different cams - good question. I'm thinking the 1900 up to 600 horse' is excellent and 2300 to 700 is about the same. I remember Magnuson saying the rotors for 1900 and 2300 are good to something like 700 and 800 horsepower, respectively. It was in an PHR from about a couple years ago or something. I believe there are boost maps out there, too, that Eaton has posted somewhere...
