    It would be awesome to do a high tech LS3 retrofit for my 2nd gen Camaro but the wiring would probably be a nightmare

    naw, gm doesnt use wires cause they're simple...now if you were retrofitting an ls3 into a range rover or a volkswagen then you'll have some issues

    easily disabled at the ECU, it's like $80 to have someone program it out.
    IDK about the sensors, are they interchangeable with LS1? Probably. Guess I haven't really bothered to look at what's actually different on the LS3 :o
