    A lot of work is needed and a ton of cash! I would say to scrap the idea and get a 408! It can be made to produce more power for cheaper. LS7 is a nice motor but it isn't cost effective for the F-Bodies.

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

    you could build a LS7 short block with the 24X reluctor crank. Run LS2 sensors from '05 and put a LS7 top end on it.

    If I were him I would stick with the lq9/lq4 or the ls2 and stroke it to 408!!
