    port the throttle body, get some gears, and subframe connectors. Id drop a nice cam in there as well to work with the heads.

    I second all 4 of these things would be the best bang for the buck. Probably throw some .410 gears in. Subframe connectors will be very important with all the mods. You might want to do a simple tire change to some street drag radials for better traction as long as you dont have to worry about snow. Have fun man!

    sounds like an awesome ride. I agree with everyone else, cam, gears, SFCs, shock tower brace, port the TB, Maybe do the bump stop mod for the TB while you're at it. Remove the screen from the MAF, and cold air intake. Or add some N20.

    Do not add nitrous. The ls1 cant handle nitrous becuase it doesnt have forged internals.

    Yeah, sorry i forgot. You have to strengthen the bottom end for nitrous. But you dont even really need it.

    I really hope your kidding......That is the most retarded statement i'ver heard in a while...

    Dude spray it if you want the motor will hold up just fine if it's used properly..

    I do agree with a nice sized cam ~.225/.225 .585/.585 on a 112 very nice sized cam.. and some drag radials. (MT dr's)... am install should take about 8 hours if you do it right, and you have the right tools....

    maybe a lid, def a ported t/b....

    my old camaro went 11.34 @ 126 with a slightly smaller cam/p/p heads,125 shot, LT's and a tune.. 2.0 60ft......

    your kidding right? a stock ls1 can take a 100 shot quiet well. Just do a wet shot.

    Dude next time don't post if you don't know what your talking about... It doesn't matter if you have zero mods-10000000 mods... you can spray a motor anytime...

    even though there is a non forged bottom end to motor is still pretty tough...

    There is a guy here in orlando that sprayed a 200 shot on a cammed car with a stock bottom end, dynoed 620/600... with perfect a/f ...
    Granted I personally wouldn't do anything that drastic, I like my money to stay in my pocket .... But it can and has been done...

    I'd be more worried about the stock 10bolt than the motor.

    Wow wow chill. I guess i shuda put it another way. By all means go ahead and spray ur motor. Im just saying since u have all those mods done, NOS wood be my last option. I wood put a cam in there before nitrous because he has all the supporting mods and even heads. And just cuz 1 guy sprays his motor and nothing happens doesnt mean its always gonna be like that. An LS1 is a strong motor, but i would more likley spray with an 03/04 cobra.

    As long as you have a good tune, you can spray a 100 shot on a stock bottom end LS1 all day long.

    dude, ls1's can handle 150 shot with tuning, no problem. the guys you see that blow their shit up dont tune it for a 150 shot and dont swap out the platinum plugs for ngk tr6 copper core plugs. there's a right and a wrong way to do everything, and everything (yes even bolt ons) need to be tuned to get all you can from your car.

    i din mean to start a war, im just saying u have all the bolt ons so it wouldnt be a bad idea to drop a car then tune it. THEN you can go ahead and put some juice into it, but look out for that 10 bolt to break. Itll prolly happen soon with the kinda power ur gonna make.
