    The LT4 kit is a waste of horsepower per dollar. Get some lloyd heads and cam for 1/2 the price and you will run circles around a lt4 conversion car. The LT4 kit comes with an LT4 intake LT4 heads LT4 hotcam with valvetrain parts and 1.6RR. The LT4 came in limited cars including the grand sport corvettes a few slp SS's and firehawks rated at 330hp they will usually outrun a stock ls1 by a few cars. The LT4 motor has a better flowing intake and heads with a mild cam with 1.6RR. The LT4 hotcam is more aggressive then a oem LT4 cam. A true LT4 motor has 4 bolt mains some extra crank work done and a little more compression then a stock LT1...

    ok ive been checking up and i found a hotcams lt1 cam kit with roller rockers and everything but it dosent come with the lifters. the lt4 intake manifold. hooker longtubes. cold air. vacuum pump to make up for the cam. cutouts. new waterpump. tune up. and maybe port and polish.. the total w/o the port and polish was about $2600 and i left a few things out

    skip the lt4 kit... there are far better heads and cams out there... at a better price too.

    note that corvette motors also mark higher since they come true dual from stock (equiv and then some to a catback on an fbody with the same motor)

    ya ive decided to skip the lt4 kit and go with a performance hot cam kit. and buy the lt4 intake manifold and just keep the stock heads.. ok another question..

    if i run hooker headers and reduce it to 2.5", put cats on, then run an H-pipe, then after the h-pipe run 3 wingnut cutouts and after those run two glasspacks and dump it.. would it work clearance wise with the driveshaft and axle?? (if u understood a word i just said)

    yes it can work, just have to find a good exhaust shop. it will cost about 1,000 for true duals if u want them to exit out the rear of the car

    i was gonna run true duel with twin cutouts before the cat but that wouldnt work.. i was also thinkin about runnin some flowtech glasspack hornies right after the header but that would meen i wouldnt have cats or cutouts.. i want cutouts no matter waht though.

    if i can remember correctly those bolt right up to the headers right??? if they do i think u will have clearance problems with them because they will want to tend to hang down and scrap unless u put hangers on them. because i wanted to go the same rout untill i found that out about them

    ya they also have a slip on type for them instead of 3 bold collector hook ups.. so i decided to run it right befor the glasspacks in the rear.. then just hook the cats up to the headers and run an H-pipe.. im gettin pissed off though because there is so much shit i wanna do but cant bc i dont even have the car to experiment with.. lol.
