l99 ls3 conversion and some other questions..

Hey decided to stay naturally aspirated for now. I think we are going to do the ls3 conversion, cam, and headers. Can I hit 450+ hp with the setup or what else could I toss in to get me their. Looking to spend about 7-8k. Probably add forced air next year....

Do the forced air now with that 7K and you should be over the 450+ range.
If you do not want the blower I would add some good heads to want you have to get you over the 450+ range.

Why do you want to convert to LS3 instead of just deleting AFM? TSP can get you where you want to be for $5000 in parts, add the labor and its still within your budget.

i think the conversion alone will get you close to 400 rwhp, a good cam and a set of heads should get you the rest of the way, also a set of lt's
