0-60 Article on the LS3

First off, for anyone who hasn't heard of the new American car magazine, 0-60, I would highly recommend picking up a copy of its premiere issue. It's much closer to the British magazines, like Evo than Motor Trend. There's an article on the LS3 in here that sheds new light on how it's gonna perform. First off, the team doing race testing on the LS3 is said to make 506hp with just a new cam and headers. They call it a "small scale, economical version of the LS7." Whether they know something we don't, they did say it would be in the Camaro and Impala SS. They also said future versions would include VVT.

If anyone can find, post up, or even type out the article, that would be great. If not, I'll go and look for the mag and get it done, no prob.

But, I like this...

well...that and the fact that it could potentially get to 506hp w/ a cam and headers.

I think I found the magazine's site, but nothing on the LS3, or the Vette - except for a mid-engine article....

www.0-60mag.com



And because I'm Cheap, imagine if they added AFM :eek: The GOD of all engines! The LS3!!!!!!

They split their site and their magazine somewhat. The site will focus on news and little articles. The magazine will hold the in-depth stuff and road tests.

Only 4 issues a year (I think), which sucks, but they travel a lot and their articles are good, so I'm sure it takes 3 months to put together one of their issues
