    Is this with the optional exhaust?

    LSx engines are known to pickup up to 10 RWHP as they "break in". I had the opportunity to tour the St. Catherine plans, and those all engines are "cold" run (spun, but not fired), about 10% are hot run.

    I never believed the break in was more than rings seating, until I realized that the LSx engines actually have cam bearing wear in which was evident in a lot of copper in the oil after the first few thousand kms. Make sure you change your oil soon, especially after a few pulls.

    Wicked... wicked numbers. LG (I believe) did long tube headers, cam and a tune and got 50x RWHP from a stock LS3.

    Holy shit balls.

    Fucking sweet man, I'm jealous. I want an LS3 Z51 but I am very much enjoying not having a car payment right now.

    Dyno numbers w/ 15% loss factored in = roughly 450hp and 440 ft-lbs at the flywheel :cool:

    I don't understand why someone would pay 1200$ for a factory exhaust when they can get an aftermarket kit for 800 or so.

    Butterflies, lol

    I will let you know next weekend. Hopefully this winter I can pull good enough times without Torque Management hindering me to much to really piss off the C5Z boys

    ummm considering the LS2 already runs neck and neck with a C5 Z06 I'm going to say that the LS3 should be fine

    god damn those are some good numbers

    headers, exhaust and tune and you'll be well over 400, make sure they remove the torque management to

    I will. Will be throwing on my 160 t-stat, a vararam, and a tune probably around December. Wanna see what she can do bone stock before I turn it up a notch.
