Thanks for the reply. So I don't think I will ever be so lucky to get LTHs approved by my wife again so I have to Kane the best of these. I plan on installing them and running them till the paint burns off so I can take them off again and wrap them with the header wrap kits. This is supposed to put some life into them. So if I can I will reuse the gasket and then replace it with the new one. I will be sure to put some pics up when I'm done. I'm going from shorties to Long tubes so I can't wait to hear the difference with the diverters I have! Do you happen to have a link for TSP? Thanks again!

Sorry forgot I ended up buying them off of classifieds on here from another member. But if you google Texas speed and performance and search 2010 Camaro O2 sensor extensions you will find it.

I plan on calling lethal racing tomorrow to get everything ordered. I'm going with the night fury cam with titanium retainers, LSx gaskets, C5R timing chain, melling high volume oil pump, dual springs, rods and trunion upgrade.

Edit: also installed my PFADT Trailing arms and toe rods today. Ill post up some pictures of the work tonight or tomorrow.

One down, 3 or 4 more mods to go. Will probably be calling up Lethal Racing to order my Night Fury cam and then Ill call a few shops and talk to them about pricing and their experience with tuning these LS3's. So far I know im going to be checking out IPS Motorsports, Back Street Performance and Mike Norris. See how I feel with those three and go from there, if anyone has any suggestions in the Ohio area feel free to post.



The parts


Gotta love this damn rain, whole drive way is filled with mud puddles.



And its done, hardest part was getting the old bushing out. Torched it and then used a punch and hammer to hammer it out.

Cam and everything is now ordered from Lethal Racing, said they would try to get it out today so now my impatient wait starts.

Time to start calling some shops for a tuner

Well got the package from Lethal Racing today, but due to a small mix up I got everything but the cam. Cam is a day behind so it should be here tomorrow morning. Waking up at 7am and then heading to my dads to start tearing it down. Hopefully we time it right and the cam gets here right after we get it all tore down haha. Ill try to take a lot of pictures and post them on here.

Got the cam yesterday and began work. Got it all tore apart and then called it a day and covered the engine. So far today we got the cam, cam sprocket, timing chain, dampner and oil pump on. Ill put up pictures when I get the chance.

Finished with the Cam install. Hoping to get it tuned today, will be calling the shop once they open to see if I can get in. Overall the install was fairly easy, hit a few snags here and there. Such as our pulley installer wasn't long enough so we had to buy a new installer set. We made our own spring compressor that worked like a charm compared to the spring compressor we did have.

Here is a few of the pictures I snapped while doing the work. Took us 3 days of work to get it done, customers cars had to come first and had a few other things get in the way that prolonged the process. Not to mention that it was the first time me or my dad had one apart. I think I got some more pictures, Ill try to get them posted up soon along with some explanations on some of the pictures and hopefully a dyno sheet by the end of the day.

471hp 429tq was our final numbers. Tuning was done by Back Street Performance in Medina, Oh. Drives like a dream, very little bucking. I can drive through a parking lot with no issue. Ill try to get some pictures up later today. We have to rearrange the exhaust, we had a little vibration before but now it's pretty bad with the cam at an idle.
