Anyone else already looking at pics deciding what little mods they could do? I feel like I would want to nightshades the turn signals behind the grille if I could to understate them a bit, especially on certain color cars.

Looks like there will be ample room to pull a cam out the front of the motor once the radiator etc is pulled up...:devil:

What esle, anyone have anything bouncing around in their head or am I the only sick bastard on here already wanting to mod...:angel:

I am building a 427 right now and the day the car comes home, the engine is going in. I want a SS427 Camaro. GM didnt offer it so I'm gonna build it :devil:
(anyone want a basically brand new LS3? LOL)

I also plan on "painting" the stripes on as well as doing something more "original" w/the seat covers.

Before it goes anywhere ... it will be different than any other Camaro I might run into :D

GMPP is supposed to offer a complete pkg with the LS7 crate engine. It would also include everything needed to do the swap including PCM or tune.
I havent seen anything in writing yet nor heard of a solid price.

I'm building mine from scratch because I want a better rotating assembly and my own camshaft. For the $14K they get for that crate engine, I think I can build a better piece. I know ... it doesnt come with the warrantee the LS7 does but ... I'm not worried about that.

I still fail to see the alure of doing the LS7 swap....other than for bragging rights. The LS3 seems plenty stout enough once you start doing some work. Plus it seems (from what I know) that there's many more options one can go with the LS3 vs the LS7. Imagine 18K worth of work done to your factory SS motor? :D

Or maybe it's just me, cuz I've seen pics of the cylinder spacing on the LS7.:|

The "alure" I can see. An SS427 Camaro" ... it just sounds cool! (not to mention w/ all GM parts and a GM warrantee on the crate engine) As for performance, I agree with you! A carefully chosen camshaft and some other bolt on parts wake that LS3 right up (not to mention power adders). I certainly think you can make 505HP for a heck of a lot less than $14K and most certainly make significantly more for less than 1/2 that. LOL.

APS twin turbo kit would look good in the engine compartment.
