pan from your LS3
intake ported from your ls3 or after market

Download the catalog.... and look on page 21:
™ 102mm Intake Manifold – LS7 Car #146202

+30hp/+25Tq over stock manifold..
so the 620 hp is now 650 hp for this engine.

P.S. there is no replacement for displacement 454ci v 376ci

k.... so if you are spending 30k on a motor/etc, might as well go all out. lol

ps.... see the second quote in my sig.

Thanks everyone for your input.
However I just figured out that if I order a SS2 now, I will not receive the car before Q4.
Since I live in Norway and I have only accepted one year project (Aug 2009- Aug 2010) in the USA for now, I will not have much time to enjoy the Camaro.
And to bring the car back to Norway is not an alternative because I must pay at least 120.000 USD in taxes!!
I will instead try to find a nice 06-08 Corvette Z06 and use it in FL, if I decide to stay longer then one year (my brother owns the company) I will defiantly try to get a SS2.
