Default L92 swap into a vintage corvette Questions

Hi all First post here, And I know just enough probably to get me in trouble. I am putting a L92 out of a Escalade into a corvette. Trans is a Tremec 5 Speed. The is going to be a street car, little if any track time.

Are there any reasonable intakes besides the stock LS3?

I did not get a harness/ECM with the motor, is Speartech the best company to go with?

Any cam suggestions, I want to run on pump gas, and emmissions are not needed.

Thanks,
Tom M

For a harness, call PSI Conversions. If you're going to be mainly driving the car on the street, stay with the stock intake. It will be fine for your intended use. Also, see if a mod will move this post to the conversion section where it needs to be.

Unless you're going to do a lot of internal mods, the LS3 intake should be fine. Hard to go wrong with GM parts, check out their hot cam, 480hp.
BTW, I put an Escalade LQ9 and Richmond 6 speed in my 68 vette.....you are going to love it.
