    Patrick G(from ls1tech and grrrr8.net board)spec'd out my set up for my stealth street car. I told him I wanted good vacuum with an idle of 750 followed by performance. Attached is the recipe. Will start pulling the intake and heads next week. Theya re pulling the LY6 out tomorrow! :) Still need to locate an oil pan.

    On the attached sheet, please find your custom 222/230 .597/.609" 114LSA +4 camshaft recommendation. This profile features Endurance lobes on the intake from EPS for maximum power under the curve. These lobes are very stable at high rpm with a wide variety of valve springs. For the exhaust, I have chosen the all-new LXL lobes from Comp. These lobes are specifically made for sustained high rpm road race applications and they give outstanding control under boost and will have much less sewing machine noise than typical high-lift lobes. They are excellent in their high rpm stability and will give much better valve control than the popular XE-R, LSL, LSK, XFI lobes from Comp.

    To raise your compression from a stock 9.6:1 to 10.2: 1, I am recommending that you mill the heads .018" and use a thinner .040" Cometic head gasket. This will give you another 2% increase in hp and tq. You can order this cam and any other valvetrain components you wish (like springs, pushrods, timing set, etc.) from Geoff Skinner at Engine Power Systems. Any questions, please write back.

    I have had both a Gen 1 small block Camaro and an LS1 2000 T/A at the same time to cross compare them. These are my opinions only:

    Gen 1 > Sounds much better, looks better
    Gen 3 > Everything else! :)

    That 2000 T/A would be a 4th gen ;) unless we're talking engines then t gets into a grey area.

    Ok- so I'm ordering the vvt delete kit.

    >>GM Front Cover (Non VVT)
    >> GM Cam Sensor
    >> GM 3-Bolt Cam Sprocket
    >> ARP LS1 Cam Bolt Kit
    $128
    Should I get a new timing chain? ($42) or can/should I use the stock one?
