    I'd say think of a question and create a thread asking members for advise, and so forth. This is honestly one of the best (if not the best) site to ask. There are lot of folks here that will be willing to help out with pretty much anything you can think of..You can start here with the link I've posted. Click the general help section. Then look for the thread tools tab, then in the thread tools tab click the post new thread tab and post your questions.http://www.ls1.com/forums/f35/

    Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

    Possibly title the thread "Some questions about the LS1 motors", then ask your question/s and post the thread. Someone will be glad to help you even with something as simple as a bolt size. There will be some D!cks but that's the net for ya you know how it is. Most will be very helpfull to you though. The folks here are generally friendly people.

    Once your thread is posted give it sometime to sink in with the guys. Someone will be along to help. If you dont get a reply in say 15 min or so you can post within your own thread. By typing "Bump" or something over 3 letters, this will put your question back to the front page.. Enjoy the site, good people, good info, and good laughs..

    Generally speaking, the better an engine breathes the more power it can make. More air + more fuel = more power. The trick sometimes is getting the best air/fuel ratio for the most efficient burn in the combustion chamber. Starting out with a higher flowing air intake system can be a good start such as a better flowing filter. The power gains may not be much with just a good air filter but can still aid in better combustion.
