Yes it can be done no problem. That being said the ls3/l99 block does have some pretty thin sleeves. It really depends on how you want to get there, but 750rwhp is no problem!

At 750 rwhp it becomes about more than engine reliability. It becomes about the reliability of all the parts on the car.

The first question that needs an answer is what's your budget? Start at that number and work backwards. That'll pretty much tell you how crazy you'll be able to go.

Also, what are you trying to do with 750 rwhp? Dragstrip or car cruises?

It's gonna come down to your tuner and Lady Luck!
If your not ready to pay don't play bud.
Your drivetrain will be taking a hit too.

honestly, it depends on what you are wanting to do with the car?

are you a dig/track kind of guy, do you like to roll race with the locals, or do you just want a dyno queen?

those go in order of most $ to least $

Ahhh, nice. Drop $60k off with your car to ADM and you'll get off to a very healthy start.

Oh shiat!

Then drop that motor off at LME! Ask to speak to "that Lil badmofo from Chitown" tell him Zeke sent you and tell him what you want! Nuff said.

Then have ADM/ LMR/ Pat G finish the tune!

i like both ideas . my biggest concern is being around 750 rwhp and being afraid that the ls3 cant handle it obviously everything else will be beefed up al the way back. and i just dont want to get to 750 rwhp on the ls3 and want more hp than she can safely handle and end up ripping it out for an lsx block in the end anyways

Well.. it SHOULD be no problem for the ls3.. but shit does happen some times ya know. If you are absolutely sure 750 is the number go ls3 but if there is a chance of more down the road, lsx.

4-5k extra for a iron long block is too much if it's not getting used for 12xxrwhp+ IMO.

Just wanna make sure the stock LS3 can handle it. I know it can if you build it... I do like Andy at ADM, but I will be using Daniel Timmons at SQR.
