    Damn thats a really good deal. Depending on what i find out here, people are over pricing the camaros IMHO.

    heck when you sell the lt1 tell me. i might have the money by then to get another one. i'd like an m6 one as a daily driver anyways. but definitely get the lt1 or ls1. not the cobra. cobras are not as good

    Yea its going to be like another month or so, I plan on getting a new driver side mirror sense a van came really close to running me off the road and swiped it, other then that I might do a little bit motor work (intake + tune) and repainting the car (keeping it black) other then that it has no problems

    my moms car reacted really well to the morosso intake tb bypass and wedge for the throttle body. If you could get a used intake, programmer and throttle body i would do that also and then just sell them again for the same price you bought them for when you decide to sell your car. What is done to your car?
    1998 Firebird Formula WS6... few things done.

    Not much, just true duels. Getting a free tune probably on monday, plus I might invest into an intake

    My dad had an lt1 formula with a procharger, headers, tune, exhaust, and a couple other goodies, but head and cam ls1 had no problems beating it. With an ls1, you put heads, headers and exhaust, cam, a lid, and a tune and your over 400whp very easily. I'm not putting the lt1 down, but it can't compare to the ls1 when making power.

    Yes an LT1 can. Visit AdvancedInduction.com - and you will change your statement - I promise. I'm putting down almost 410 @ the wheels with just 185cc heads - on the stock short block. The results are amazing when guys do it right.

    I never said that lt1's can't make good power. I just don't think the heads are as capable as some of the gen 3 stuff. My dad is friends with a big lt1 head porter and he does some pretty cool stuff that lt1s couldn't have done 5 or 6 years ago.

    BS there is no way an lt1 is making over 400 to the wheels with just heads. What did you dain 150rwhp from heads? That is like 175 flywheel horsepower.

    Exactly. 185cc heads versus, lets say, 205cc's. Thanks for clearing that up TrickStang.

    ok well you said just heads so that is unbelieveable. That is still a shitload of power out of a n/a lt1.

    LT1's have gone over 500 rear-wheel naturally aspirated with stroker/solid-roller combo's. It's obvious that you are not fully educated yet, but you'll get there

    Nice set up, I am guessing when you say LE1, its the Loyd Elliot kits right?
    I think they are the best bang for the buck.
