Thanks for the information, did not know that.

Now I don't want to derail the OP's basic thread, so I will shut up and listen.

I believe what you guys are telling me, but why? Why does the LS3 make more power?


Jim
1st of all drivetrain loss. Autos eat up more power. Then l99s have smaller cams and I believe less compression.

That being said, autos rock with power adders.
