LS3 Auto??

I searched around for awhile and couldn't find the answer. Anyway, I know the AFM in the L99 will not work with a manual transmission, but I haven't read anywhere about the LS3 mentioned with an auto.

It seems if you want an auto...you must get the L99. So, my question is, will the LS3 be available with an automatic transmission?

I think he meant the Ls3 is an L99 without afm. A least I hope so.

yes, GM will also throw in active fuel management but cut you back 22 hp and rename the engine to L99.
