Okay.. I was told that my project is a one-of-a-kind, but I now know that other (very few) C4 owners have replaced their engines with an LS. What is different (I am guessing) about my project is that I'm pulling the trigger on purchasing the 46760 Edelbrock. This is a GM LS3 with Edelbrock modifications, which I believe to be the best performance upgrades you can make to the LS3.

I am having 3R Racer, out of Denver, do the build. My goal here in this forum is to gain as much knowledge/user info so that I can prepared for ALL of the highest performance education that I will be putting into my Vette.

I am going to try to utilize all of the electronic capacities that the LS3 offer, including;
HUD - Heads up display
Smart suspension interaction
Full F-Body strengthening to handle 700hp

And..
I would imaging (hoping) that input will come from other forum users will be coming from those in the C4, C5 and C6 world.

HELP.. Thank you in advance.

Will have your work cut out for you as those technologies not used in a C4.
I am suspecting you having to use the complete PCM/BCM/wiring /dash setup from a later car with those functions

You don't state what your driving aims will be with the new engine?
Unlike a F-Body that is uni-body construction requiring sub frame connectors ;C4's ;
they already have a full steel chassis so there is little strengthening done .
Depending on use ( drag strip / sticky tires/etc ) ,the IRS can be come marginal ( a solid rear needed ) unless you like constant parts replacement
