Will take longer to get it out of the box than it does to install it!

Mine also said LS3. As stated above, it makes no difference.

yes. The L99 & LS3 are the same. The engine designation is only for the valvetrain difference (VVT).

Yeah, about 99.7% of people say they definitely feel the difference, and really love them! And the 0.3% of people who didn't feel the difference won't give it back and want to keep it still.
I felt the difference when I put mine on my Camaro, awesome throttle response, and you gain a few horses and torques too!

Feel free to call, email or PM anytime!

Would it make more or less difference on a modded car, should it be retuned?

We do the core charge as well.

No need for a tune, but as with any mod a tune will optimize the results.

It absolutely makes a huge difference in throttle response. I was very impressed with how much it was improved. PS, get the paint option, totally worth it.

I'm not positive on this, but my guess is yes, it would improve more on a modded car. I put mine on after I did my other bolt-ons. IMO I would get the tune for performance's sake. But if money was tight, I might not.

Honestly these things give like 2 hp if that. I sold mine and my car still feels like a freak. I don't regret selling either and don't intend to replace it.
