Man you did your homwork. I am going down the same road. Saving a little more money though. I live in FL. So I think I am going to give Jememy a call and see what he thinks. Let me know how it turns out. Are you doing the instll work or subbing it out?

Take Care,

I think you'll be fine. It won't be stock manners with a 3600 stall but you will get use to it. For the power you will be putting down, it's well worth it! Your car is going to run damn good!

I ran the X2 and it was a good cam. I will admit that I did need 4.10's to put it in the powerband a little quicker but other than that, it was a good cam and pulled pretty good up top. Note, this was in my F-body but I did make 422rwhp 396 ft lb with cam, lt's, and bolt on's. Not to shabby! I even had stock LS1 heads!

I think the X1 or X2 might be the ticket for you! You also might want to look in MTI cams. They make good all around cams. I've ran two of their cams in my current car. They both made great power under the curve. Shoot me a PM if you want further info.

i think those 36 lb injectors might be a little large. I've seen many forced induction applications run as small as the ford 30 lb injectors which seem to be the only ford part Ls1 owners will even look at. I'd suggest 32-34lb at the most. I believe your corvette has a difference fuel system than my 97 which has a return line.

For your TC, unless you're doing alot of strip runs, the 3200 will be more than enough for that SOTP go feeling. I'm curious what brand you're going with.

I've heard nothing but praise for the AFR heads for LS1s

ooo precision. nice choice

i suppose 36 wouldn't hurt as long as it's tuned well.... plus if you decide to go FI or nitrous later, it will be one less part you'll need.
