existing LS3 tuners

Is anyone else looking through the Vette forums for LS3 tuning 'expertise'?

My father has a C5 and Vengeance racing did some work on his car...and it's ridiculous...the performance and the SOUND that thing makes...yikes.


Take a look at this thread...

There is Corvettes of Westchester in Westchester NY. The tuner is supposed to be known all over the country. I don't own a corvette though so I am not sure of his name.

It's great living in NJ/NY.

East Coast Supercharging (does a lot more than just blowers. A lot of my close friends prefer ECS. They're expensive, but they build a shit ton of reliable power.) http://www.eastcoastsupercharging.com/

Cartek http://www.cartek.net/

TT Performance (TTP. Some of my other friends swear by TTP. They've always been treated well.) http://www.ttperformance.net/

Tune Time Performance (not TTP, but I hear that name a lot with the TBSS guys) http://www.tunetyme.net

Kaltech (Kaltech sponsors a close friend of mine, and her GTO runs like a raped ape consistently enough to be competitive) http://www.kaltechtuning.com/

Corvettes of Westchester (did the install on my friend's heads/cam car) http://www.corvettes-of-westchester.com/

Vette Doctors http://www.thevettedoctors.com/

and so on and so forth.

Then you have your big names, all over the country.

Katech (they do the motors for the C6.Rs and build some of the baddest, most durable road race LSx cars. Hope you have a lot of coin though.) http://www.katechengines.com/katech_inc/

Lingenfelter (big coin, I've heard questionable things since John died. Still a big national name in tuning though) http://www.lingenfelter.com/

LG Motorsports (decent coin, very established in road racing. Nasty cams, and a big selection of them. Very popular.) http://www.lgmotorsports.com/catalog/index.php

Texas Speed (their cam grinds are very popular. See their cams in a lot of cars.) http://www.texas-speed.com/

Quality Motorsports (don't know much about them besides the fact that they hit 600whp with their heads/cam in the LS7, so they're popular with the C6Z crowd) http://www.quality-motorsports.com/

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I know I left out a lot, but that's a start.

A little about me-AUTOMOTIVE TUNING, BY ADM PERFORMANCE Why is tuning necessary? A high-quality tune will get the most performance out of your vehicle…. more than ever when money has been spent on dyno proven parts built and distributed at ADM Performance. Why Choose ADM? When automotive enthusiasts spend money they want results, results Come from time tested data and many hours on a chassis dyno and street.ADM has spent the hours testing their products and with out a doubt gives you the results you’re looking for. Were did ADM come from?ADM performance was created on April 31st 2006,to supply and support a platform that no one else was working on-Chevrolet Trailblazer SS.We created the first 100mm Intake system using our own 100mm mass airflow sensor housing and filter system. This product was derived from some previous testing on a LS6, LS2, and LS7 powered Corvettes, results were less than stellar. We implemented the same parts for the trailblazer and came up with one of the most sought after Intakes for the Trailblazer SS of its time. Shortly after the newness wore off our test mule, we went after an electric fan conversion kit.ADM was the first to offer a complete bolt in kit for 2006 ZO6 Electric fan into a Trailblazer SS.After many weeks of testing in the hot Texas heat we came back with yet another proven performance part that would give the trailblazer the added edge it need to crush the competition.

ADM before the Trailblazer SS – 1985, Year I got my first turbo car, Mitsubishi Mirage Turbo. Enhancements by CARTECH (Famed Corky Bell).1987 another Mitsubishi Mirage Turbo. Enhanced by CARTECH and my self.1989 Honda Civic Si –Enhanced by HKS,Cartech,Roy Gude built by self.1995 Chevrolet Camaro Z-28 Enhanced by Motorsport Technologies and built by Motorsport Technologies.1999-2001 Mazda RX7 –Enhanced by Rotary Performance and Haltech Fuel Injection built by self, 2001 Chevrolet Corvette Z06-Enhanced by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering parts build by self.2005,1999 Corvette Enhanced by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering parts build by self.2006 Trailblazer SS By Lingenfelter Performance engineering parts build by self.

I was looking at the G6X3 cams for the LS3 Vette from LG Motorsports and I'm confused about that concept they Claim that Cams,Stage 1 Heads, Headers, Exhaust , Intake makes 517Whp ? I was surprised and intrigued is that alot of work? Am I correct in thinking that these parts can be bolted to the Camaro?

I found it here with a Vid.


Also what are the Con's if any of doing these mods besides loss of warranty?

Yes they will all bolt up to a Camaro (the headers and catback will be bespoke, but the rest will)

With a cam that big, you're going to have a lot of lope, possible some surge, and you're going to lose some streetability. Even with the best tuner, the nature of a cam that has that much lift, duration, and overlap is kinda nasty. I personally like that. This car will NOT drive the way your Camaro did off the showroom floor. The other thing they didn't tell you was with heads, you also have to do valvetrain. Valves, valvesprings, rods, rockers, all that fun stuff. It adds up and gets pricey.
