Question Poor man's LS9

Im looking for some opinions. I know some people have done a ls9 cam swap into the camaro but i was wondering if anyone has looked into doing ls9 valves? Would they be a direct swap or require head work? With the titanium valves and solid stems vs. stock ls3 valves i would imagine this has to be a good upgrade especially with a boosted setup.....

The prices aren't too bad for titanium valves either but the seats in the ls9 heads are of a different material and the valves use lash caps- I think the height is a little different requiring different pushrods.

Hmmm....... I've got your solution. Rent a zr1 swap the long blocks buy a supercharger from the dealer, tune it, it's a done deal. Everyone has a price where their morals go out the window, right?
