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!
