    Just start looking around. A lot of the LS parts will work in the LQ9 so the aftermarket is there and pretty inexpensive. The cam will depend on what you want it to make. If you go larger, you'll probably have to put a bigger stall converter in. The heads, you have hundreds of choices with those.

    On these trucks, I'd look at upgrading your trans and transfer case before you start going crazy on mods. I was always told if you're doing more than intake/exhaust/tune - plan on the trans breaking.

    2008 Z06 - Velocity Yellow - OEM

    Either upgrade to a 4L80 or take the stock one apart and bullet proof the internals.

    I'm not sure, I've never looked into it since my SS is all stock... you'll have to call around for prices, or try to find a 4l80 for sale.
