It needs to be installed from the bottom (not through the shifter hole) and the exhaust needs to be removed from the Cats back for the shifter install. Just so happens LPE is replacing all of that portion of the exhaust anyway, so I am having them install at the same time - it only makes sense.
Nice work with the shifter!! That would be nice to have. It gives me some ideas for next year. I swear - its like I am always thinking of what else I can do, like it is never done...lol.

It looks like on the 650hp package they port the heads, port & polish the throttle body, etc. It looks like this may be where they are getting some of the extra hp over the 570 package but I am not sure. Here is the 650 package. I may have to upgrade after a few years - I should have the drivetrain beefed up by then also.



650 BHP / 630 lbs-ft of torque

- Engine removal, disassembly and inspection
- Lingenfelter CNC porting of LS3 cylinder heads
- Lingenfelter multi-angle valve job, cc cylinder chambers
- OE 2.165" hollow stem intake / 1.59" heavy duty Inconnel exhaust valves
- Surfacing for correct compression, Competition Cams valve springs
- Mahle forged coated aluminum pistons and tool steel pins
- Oliver 4340 forged billet steel “I” beam connecting rods
- Computer balanced LS3 crankshaft & rotating assembly
- Total seal file fit rings
- Clevite Heavy duty rod & main bearings
- Head gaskets, head bolts
- TVS2300 intercooled supercharger system
- Black powder coated finish
- Based on OEM Eaton supercharger unit
- Fuel system upgrades and properly sized fuel injectors
- 160 Degree thermostat
- Ported & polished LS3 throttle body
- Lingenfelter High Flow Air Intake
- Boost by pass system
- Professional engine installation, testing & tuning
- Chassis dyno report before & after installation

I just sold my 2005 C6 Corvette because I wasn't using it. There are 3 in our Family now - the newest addition is 4 years old. If the 'Vette had room for 3 I would still own that.

I sold 2 vehicles already (a formula car for SCCA, my 2005 C6 vette) and am in process parting out and selling my '92 Camaro drag car. I had 2 of them in storage and have not been using them since the little one came along.

I'm combining all three car aspects together into the camaro. I plan on doing the complete suspension and tire/wheel upgrades over the winter. I will also upgrade the bodywork once I find what I am looking for. I am on the list for the revolution hood once they are done.

My plan is to Drag race, AutoX, and do individual timed events on the local race tracks, along with some car shows in the area. I can run NHIS (45 min away), Limerock (3 hrs away), and Watkins Glen (8 hrs away) road coarses, along with New England Dragway (20 min away). Autox is at NHIS and Devens (1 hr away). Should be a fun summer next year.

Damn, it looks like you have some good stuff to do next summer!! I was thinking maybe Road Atlanta next year and some time at the strip also. It will be nice to play a little bit again.

I was fooling around with the G-Tech tonight and my best was a 12.2@120 - 0-60 was 4.3. I would like to get into the 11's on stock tires at the strip. Still working on the launches - not sure how accurate the G-Tech is but it sure is fun. Have I said how much I love this car!!!

Speed I see that 570 got his car and it sounds awesome also. It is cool that he got information from you and helped with his build. I bet you are not looking forward to the weather that will be coming soon as you won't be able to enjoy the car in the winter. But that gives you something to look forward to next year. Hopefully, you will get to some events with it and by chance I'll get to see the awesome beast.

Speed and I chat quite a bit on the forum.

I know I can speak for speed on this.. Even though we will have downtime over the winter, it is tucked away in the garage. Just knowing you have something this special is heartwarming. When they emerge in the spring, they will have progressed further in their transformation. While you can't drive them, they are still cared for and worked on.

Amen Brother - I was driving home today from work and I pulled up to the house and I thought to myself - "I've got an LPE-570 Camaro in the garage" - what a good feeling!!!

ISU - I am sure we will run into each other at some point. I still need to get to Karl Chev in Ankeny to say thanks for ordering my car. I am looking forward to next summer.
