I don't know why I read these threads... or comment in them for that matter.

Oh, by the way, as soon as I get my Camaro, I'm planning on swapping the L99 out with an 1100hp crate. Can anyone tell me what I need to do that?

I think the consensus is that it's a waste of money for the LSA.

But that when the car is old there will be all kinda of engine swaps.

As far as the body in white that rules but it's for race cars you can't use it on the street like a rebuild LS can.

Order from a GM Dealers Parts Department. I think it's like $14,000 or something like that. I know the information has been posted here before.

I like your thinking....
get a 396 LT1 from golen engines, half fill the block (so you can still drive it on the street), then add a progressive 450hp direct port nitrous setup.

Sounds like the OP could buy a 1SS, rebuild the LS3 with a forged, lower compression bottom end and come out way ahead even after adding the blower. And the accessories will still fit. Of course this would deny him the fun of rebuilding the wiring harness for the new engine and ECM.
