Estimated cost & output ?

What do you think this would run approximately + install ?
I'm trying to set a budget to do this in March/April where
i should have about $3500 set aside.
Also what do you think a setup like this is capable of ? (rwhp)

CAI
full exhaust,LT's & Borla S type.
DOD delete,cam,lifters
dyno tune

you should be able to price out all of the stuff.. its the install that you will need to talk to a shop about... it can even be over a grand for install and tune, i know that it would be over a grand for me for all of that to be installed and a dyno tune\

not sure what the l99 makes.. but a ls3 should make around 460-480WHP with that setup depending on the cam

If you install the LT's and exhaust yourself (easy) you'll save some cash, but I think you'll need more than that.

Figure:

$350-400 CAI
$800-1,500 for LT's less if you get cheap ones or no cats
$1,200-1,300 for Borla S-type cat back
$400-500 for cam and lifters

Thats just PARTS install will vary based on where you go. Cam install won't be cheap. The rest can be done in your driveway.
Plus the Dyno tune and DOD delete which can vary based on shops rate and time spent.

First glance I think you're pushing it on the price range. $3500 would about cover parts, and you might be a little short depending on what you want (do you want to throw a new timing chain on there?). From what I hear, all those phasers and photon torpedoes on the L99 make the install price a bit more expensive than the LS3. Of course there's the beer and friends option if you're very confident in your mechanical abilities, that'll bring down the install cost...
My guess is $4500-5000 for the whole shebang.

It would be about $3500 just for parts.
Headers,exhaust,cam,springs,pushrods,lifters,lifte r trays,head gaskets,head bolts,valley cover,front cover,cam sprocket,timing chain,ls2 dampner and misc stuff.
On top of this you are limited on Cam selection due to the stock converter can only idle up to 650rpm before pushing.

My car is done the way you want your's. Made 325hp stock, 435hp now on the stock converter.

I don't think $3500 will get it all done, parts alone would break the budget. I could give you a great deal on the CAI, LTs with high flow cats, and the Borla S-Type cat back and you would be at $2600 already. Having a shop install those parts and get it tuned would finish off the rest.

Your under cost on the cam and lifters, DOD delete Kit Includes:
-GM LS7 Lifters
-GM Valley Cover
-GM Lifter Trays
-GM Head Bolts

retails is $300 on the kit, cams are anywhere from 375-425

Power output will depend on the cam and like Slowhawk said your going to need a stall
