That is a very cool project. Thank you for sharing.

I'm way too lazy and I lack the mechanical skills to make that happen. Plus, my wife would shoot me for dropping $6k on a new motor for a $32k car. Nonetheless, I will live vicariously through you and hopefully learn a thing or two along the way.

Those heads look awesome. Are those larger valves, or the standard size for the L92 head? What cam do you plan on running? I take it you plan on stripping the L99 motor and using those parts to finish the build? Looks like it will be an awesome combo. Good luck with the build.

I take it you are building a 550HP automatic Camaro? Any reason why instead of the manual trans? BTW, very cool project Will keep an eye on this thread. Good luck and enjoy your new beast..

the valves are the standard LS3/L92 size, 2.165" intake and 1.59" exhaust, i think i will start with the same cam i had in my s-10 comp cam xr281hr, just because i know it ran very well in the 6.0L/L92 engine and it willl be tamer in this stroker engine, just till i know what my options will be for tuning the new camaro ECM, i will have almost a complete engine ready to drop in, yes small parts i will be swapping from the original L99 engine

i never got into manual trans cars,, i have always raced and built auto transmissions myself and they are more consistant at the drag strip and this car will be going to the track. and this auto will still be a blast to drive with the 6 speed , especially when someone comes out with a re-program for the paddle shifters to give them full control of gear selection

It should fit right in. Only issue would be setting up a dry sump oil system for the LS7 but thats not really a big deal either.
