    I have a question. Why are you so set on the LT4 Hot Cam? Is it the price? Emissions? There are similar cams out there that will make more power.

I ran the LE1.2 on my last LT1 car and made some really good #'s while maintaining emissions in CA.
    Yea you are right. But I was comparing the LE2 vs. the LT4 kit.
    Yea LT4 is usually a littler over 2 grand but I am a distributor so I can get it cheaper. As for vs. paying retail its not too far apart.

    Well if you could get it cheaper therefore money not being the object than yes, LT4 all the way!

    stock heads, sticky mickeys, 100 shot fogger, and a cc503 cam will get you DEEP into the 11's

    Jegs has the hole kit for the LT4 Conversion. Heads, Intake, Cam, Rockers, Springs, and gaskets. Only thing you might need to replace is the roller lifters and they are an extra 250 I think. Check it out www.jegs.com/i/Edelbrock/350/7109K/10002/-1

    Like a wise man once told me IF YOUR GONNA PLAY YOUR GONNA PAY!!! Unless you have contacts, then you wont pay as much. lol If he wants the kit there it is. Personally I would find a good engine builder and let him take the stock heads and work them with biger valves and clean up the runners. Pick a good cam and spring setup then tune it for what you do and then I would also do the bottom end while I was at it but that is just me. Now let her rip
