Question Would You DO it?

No not that.... if money was not an issue, would you take your brand new SS and drop an LS9 in it?

If so, would you

1) allow your dealership to do it
2) do it yourself
3) get a custom shop to do it.

I know there could also be issues with the IRS being able to handle the HP, but if memory serves correctly Al Op said at the Indy show that it could handle the HP.

I would get a custom shop to do it ... unless GM had something where if the dealer does it you retain full warranty (which I doubt would happen) ..

If I ad the money it would be tempting, but at the same time it'd be more fun trying to make sick power NA...who am I kidding, I'd do it. I'd have a custom shop or GM install it, depending on price. One benefit to a custom shop is they can provide you with a custom tune and install all the bolt-ons too.

If I had the money to do it, I'd build a 454 LSX and drop in myself.

Money no issue? Why would DIY even be on the list.. pass the bubbly and caviar...

Do I even have to say it?
