why not buy a body in white and then just add whatever you want to it?

strip the car down to absolutely nothing. scrape out the foam inside the frame tubing and pull every single thing that doesnt make the car go faster off, throw in a TT LSX 454 and trans to match and you might be able to keep up with a ZR1 on the straight away for a period of time, but unless someone gives you the motor and trans, you wont be able to out perform a ZR1 for half the cost of one.

Would be a better idea to be LS1 in it I think. Or even a nice built up LT1.

Lot cheaper. It will be a while once they hit the 100k mark people will do stuff like that.

its gonna cost a lot more than you are looking at to out run and out corner a ZR1. even a 90's ZR1.

the LSA pumping out ~550hp, LS9 pumping out ~650hp. ZR1 weighs how much less than the Camaro?

more power + Less weight > Less power + more weight.
+1
The only real upgrades that I saw the LSA have over the LS3 are the rods and the crank. Im sure there are some other small differences though.

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.
