My understanding a few months ago, like last winter, there was a thread about power cap. I believe the drive train was designed to handle around 600 ft lb torque

Not that this is the most important observation from this, but man the LS3 is a nice looking engine. GM really needs to lay off the stupid engine covers. Who wants a second hood, especially when the engine looks that good?

Wow, I have to admit, that really sounds nice, and I normally don't like the "hopped up" sound. Good luck with the tune.

To say I'm envious would be quite the understatement. I can't wait to hear it with some headers and exhaust! It's not apparent with the stock exaust, but once headers/cats/x-pipe etc are installed with the stock mufflers, it has a very hollow/tinny sound. Anyway, looks great and keep the vids coming!

Those ADM downpipes really help the stock exhaust sound, big time. What or whose tuning are you using? I noticed a very long period of time between start begining and lightoff of the new engine. Has got to be somewhere with the tuning tables or a glitch. Motor should lightoff quickly close to stock motor. Otherwise it sounds Killer at idle. Hurry up and clean up the exhaust, especially those silver cans in the rear. What is your take on the tune and start anomolly???
