    Picked up a new LS3 480 for the SS Monte

    I just took delivery of a 480HP LS3 for my SS monte carlo. I can't wait to install this new engine in the car. This car needs a complete frame off along with the engine swap

    I would have to say that is just a bit of an upgrade over the stock 305 -- very nice!!! What other mods or upgrades will accompany this install?

    I will add long tube headers, race cats and a 3 inch exhaust. The trans will be a billet 4l60E along with a 12 bolt disc brake rear and an aluminum drive shaft. I will add 4130 control arms up front with adjustable rear swing arms out back and new springs and shocks. All the rest will be cosmetic stuff.
