a small change in cam and a tune can render the LS3 to over 500hp.

That was amazing, sounds amazing too. Also sounded like he was short shifting but couldn't have with times like that!

ok I was sorta off. 520hp ls376/520 is a cam and carb setup. ls376/480 is just a cam upgrade.

Shifting sounded hesitant (slightly) and his 60 ft time was better in the second run which was overall, slower than the last run. That vette will go quicker than what was posted.

dont forget that Katech built a 4th gen with an LS7 that did the same, or better.


I Love MODS!!! This car ran a 10.85 @ 131 MPH!! (later, after this vid).

http://youtube.com/watch?v=Fdm3pDwR98E

We might soon see an LS9 SC Vs. LS7 N/A 5th-Gen Shootout!! That would be....


AND, just For Fun - Crank up the speakers for THIS one!!!:


Music to the Ears!!! "Buh-Bye, Baby!!!"

That Cammed LS7 NA (NO BOOST) 600+ HP V8 was...just....SICK!!!!!!!!!! It DISAPPEARED before the third shift!!! Dayum!!!!

Those shifts were spot-on. I really love the "Click-Pull" downshifts at the very end of the vid. Cammed LS7=V8 Symphony.

That is a pretty lopey cam... Needs some work on his shifting but all in all not to bad.

Engines like the LS3 just serve to remind us just how fantastic of an engine the General's small block really is IMO. It does not take a whole lot of work to massage incredible amounts of power out of them. Built like tanks and when treated correctly they go like hell over and over and over again.

I just wanted to point out that the LS3 crate engine that puts out 480hp with fuel injection uses the LS Hot Cam---But the 515hp version using a carb also gets the ASA cam. Same lift but more duration.

#88958733 219/228 duration
vs
#12480110 226/236 duration

I wish I could get the V8, but there's just no way in hell I'll be able to afford it unless it costs under 25,000, which I really don't see happening. Knowing that the V6 will come with 304 horses makes me feel much better about it though.
