the valves are the standard LS3/L92 size, 2.165" intake and 1.59" exhaust, i think i will start with the same cam i had in my s-10 comp cam xr281hr, just because i know it ran very well in the 6.0L/L92 engine and it willl be tamer in this stroker engine, just till i know what my options will be for tuning the new camaro ECM, i will have almost a complete engine ready to drop in, yes small parts i will be swapping from the original L99 engine

i never got into manual trans cars,, i have always raced and built auto transmissions myself and they are more consistant at the drag strip and this car will be going to the track. and this auto will still be a blast to drive with the 6 speed , especially when someone comes out with a re-program for the paddle shifters to give them full control of gear selection

It should fit right in. Only issue would be setting up a dry sump oil system for the LS7 but thats not really a big deal either.

wow. we're all jealous. thanks for sharing and keeping us posted. Will you be modifying the trans? I believe I read somewhere that mistercamaro spoke with Al Oppenheiser (sp?) and Al said the trans was good to 600hp?? Don't quote me on it, but that's what i remember.

Nice. Wondering why ya didnt go with the jesel rockers for the ls motors. I know they gave almost another 20hp to my engine over aluminum rollers for the blazer. Next engine I build ill be using them as well. Worth the cost IMO.

WOW!

I can't wait to see the results!

I think you should consider contacting some publications, ie; 'Camaro Performers', 'Super Chevy', etc., and tell them about your "project". I'd bet they'd be very interested and possibly contact you about putting it in one of their magazines?

ill be keeping the 6l80e trans, if i can build a 4l60e to hold up in my 10sec camaro for years i think the 6L80e will be fine, it is a way beefier trans than the 4l60e's, and if it does go bad the 6L90e trans should be a pretty easy swap
