Being unique and knowing it certainly can have the advantage while being mistakenly perceived as one of the numbers. In this case, its good to a wolf in sheep's clothing. I certainly have had the most fun driving "sleepers".

Hehe, I am with you.

Really the crate engines from GMPP have passed stringent validation process that give people a certain level of comfort.

There are many ways to get to a goal.

I enjoy all the different flavors of mods.

Our LS9 deal wil be different that the projects currently underway.
We will have more details as our program continues.

I like the LSX block idea with the TVS.

It looks like late August or early September is when I have rough sheduled.

Lingenfelter should have the fuel pump controller done long before then.

Can you post some HP gains from the GMPP's?

In my opinion it is not a reasonable nor feasible way to go. A LS9 retails for $29990 alone, then you would have to get an upgrade fuel pump and other stuff like a stronger clutch, stronger axles(remember even the C6 Z06 break axles).
In top of that add the labor and the tuning and other minor stuff like air filter etc, remember, everything counts, you would still have to get some air filetr that fits the huge LS9 throtle body.

Then what? well, you would need bigger tires. I don't think is worth at all. I rather take a reliable simple bolt-on LS3 and call it a day. If you want a LS9 decafeinated buy the Cadillac CTS-V. At the end you would spend what a new Z cost new and still have similar results straight line only.

The LS3 proven to be an awesome engine, it makes great power with simple bolt-ons(cam, headers, cai, tune). Even going with the S/C would be a better option. It gets to a point where too much power in a chasi that is not makde to handle that much power can result is a bad combo. For instance too much wheel spin.
