LS7 Improvement thread

Im thought id try to get something going here. I will start by saying,yes im on a second build for my car a 08 z06 10k. Been saving since last H/C in april. All were waiting for is ross coated pistons. Thats all i got for now. Hopefully someone has something interesting, no matter if its cosmetic or mechanical to discuss. Hope the snipes stay at the other forum

I know where it is......... whats going in the engine? what kind of power level do you expect from it? any other mods to the car to support the new set-up? are you doing it yourself, or farming it out?....and we use snipe repellant here
