I have a 2007 Impala SS with the 5.3, and it is damn impressive, 305 Horsepower, I was shocked how fast the car is, it's great beating the mustang gt's in a 4 door car, your gonna love that 5.3.

well, i took those pics last fall when it did run then PS'd the OBS wheels & cab lights. thanks for the help offer. if i run into something i can't work out, i'll hit you up. i never mentioned a camaro because i ain't gt one yet :( it would be funny to see a deer strapped to your hood, though

305, really?! the LS6 heads only got you an extra 10hp over the truck engine? it's still pretty fun to have the LS4 in a family car!

You are going to be really happy with the tried and true 5.3, I don't know how you've stood being without your truck since May 27th. You have a really good MOM if she's been letting you drive her car all that time. Best of luck to get rolling soon.

i actually clocked it a couple weeks ago & the excursion gets about 12 in town & 17 hwy with the cruise on 55
