In my TV listing, it says the Optima Challenge original Air Date was 3/11/11. Is this really the show the Lingenfelter L28 is in ?

3/11/11 was the SEMA '10 version...

The times listed by me, above, are for this past year's event, in conjuction with SEMA '11. And yes, we hope to see that "L" of a car "perform"...

Thanks - Looks like the 1st 2 are the 2010
Maybe the othe 2 are 2011.
Can't wait to see more coverage. I saw the video clip they posted awhile ago of just the L28. Neat stuff !!

I just watched a clip on the LPE site and parts of it seem like the show that just aired. Maybe the info from my Cable co is wrong and the show is not from the 1st air date of 3/11/11. I'm not sure now...

Close to a race ready Vette driven by Danny Popp. My guess is Danny was driving a car at least 700 pounds lighter. Both the car and Danny were very very good.

No doubt.
The 427 sound is what muscle car dreams are made of. How much is the crate engine?

I agree the LS7 sounds really good with an exhaust that lets the sound come out, and then even better with a thumpy cam.

You can look up just the LS7 on the GMPP web site, but I would like to know what LPE would charge to do an LS7 conversion that's an N/A setup.
All the camaro packages on the LPE web site are supercharged. I know each customer might customize the build some to what they want, but I wonder if they've thought about posting some LS7 N/A options for buyers with just basic packages.
