    I have a Procharger D1SC supercharger on my car with all supporting mods (intercooler, injectors, fuel pump, meth, gauges) and a fully built suspension/drive train. Pretty much most everything has been upgraded on the car from a performance standpoint. I have a few things still left, but not many.

    Cost? Let's not go there

    Most of my add-ons are in my signature.
    It's on jackstands.

    yup John is right. most just use the 243 heads since there relatively cheap compared to aftermarkets. with a moderate sized cam and a set of 243's you will be more then impressed with the car and hard to catch from a street car point of view. Take a look at what all was done and the times my 01 ss camaro ran with what little was done to it. mods are in my signature a few posts down

    I didn't have a clue on what most of the acronyms and abbreviations meant on here for about the first 2 months after I joined. It was like learning a whole new language.

    Oh yes. I thought I was mildly knowledgeable as far as terms for parts on cars went... got on here and was so lost. It was mostly just guessing lol. But either way, so far I have been very very impressed with the people on this forum. They have been extremely helpful and understanding and patient with all the questions I have. Hell, Ive had people less helpful who get paid to help, lol.

    Does anyone have a link to some decent heads for my ls1? I think i have a shop I'd be able to go to, as far as install. Would it be a good idea to just ask them where they get their performance parts?
    I just don't want to order some then find out i got a crap brand or something along those lines... I have bad luck with that lol.

    thanks again ls1 forum for all the help!!

    Best bet is too hook up with a reputable shop that can help you make the right selection, perform the install and then tune it to run right. My next upgrade will almost have to be under the hood as everything else is about where I want it to be now. I have no clue what heads or cam to go with and will also need guidance.

    Quite a few different options to choose from. Anything from a budget friendly build all the way to an obnoxious build. When the times comes, feel free to post up a question in the external engine section regarding it. There is also a sticky in that same section about cams. Be sure to read it so you get familiar with the terminology and exactly how a cam works.

    You my friend have been extremely helpful! I need book for dummies! Lol, I have a hard time commiting to anything without every last question answered. So many questions. I think I was starting to annoy the guy at the shop who did my header install.

    Note that should read "internal engine" section, not external

    No problem. Glad I can offer some assistance.

    if your committed to doing the swap but dont wanna break the bank too bad i'd reccommend just a set of P&P 243 heads est $700 full assembled and an entire cam kit from TSP is around 650 then add 500 for a dyno tune and you will be looking at around 1850 for the majors but dont forget the little things like gaskets, fluids and such, i'd plan in the 2k range to do it and have it done right. most people will port the oil pump upgrade the timing chain (LS2 chain) and lifters (LS7 style) as well as a few other odds and ends but those aren't a must. however if you have the funds i would go ahead and do it so you wont have to mess with it again. as far as cam size just IMHO i would not go any bigger then say a TV2 or 232/234 duration and no bigger the around .595 lift this way you have a good all around cam as far as the power band goes. PM me and i can give you some links to these sites so you know exactly what your looking at
