The LS3 Has Landed

I sold my SR motor last Wednesday night, then ordered up the LS3 Thursday. A few days later and it’s in my possession. I bought the LS3/480 which is the standard LS3 with the addition of a pre-installed “hot” cam. This bumps power from the standard 430hp up to 480hp. Pretty logical purchase for only another $340.

    Aww dude, why did you sell the SR. So much win.

    Also keen to see your new design with the gauge setup.

    Oh wow man that is a winning setup right there, nice choice on the hot cam and it will be so torquey as an LS3, gobs of goodness. Congrats on the progress and wow thats a shiny new motor, cant wait to see how far you take the new setup!

      …nevermind. I figured you’d post those pictures on the blog instead of your build thread…at least Damon appreciates my contributions!

    minty fresh. Do you have any plans or tricks in mind for the appearance of the motor? or just leaving it OEM?

    IT LOOKS HEAVY.

    I BET YOUR WEIGHT BALANCE RATIO IS GOING TO BE WAY OFF.

    BLAH BLAH.
