    Wow, that's the last advice I expected to see put forward, very interesting. I would have thought already having 243 heads that are decent but a crap LS2 manifold it would have made most sense to do intake, manifold and cam. However I assume other than more power the benefit if you convert to LS3 heads is you can also get the better factory LS3 manifold so assuming you get all the bits cheap you would actually get away paying less since something like a FAST 102 on its own runs like $1400?

    Surely it would still be worth doing the cam though? Just choose a mild cam?

    I've sourced some Ls3 heads, rockers and intake manifold. Want to get the air intake and exhaust sorted first. The only cam I'd consider is so mild it'd hardly be worth doing. I really don't want to fuck the combo up.

    It seems making the power is the easy part as I don't know how much the 4l65 and "small" diff will take. Actually, I think I do :/

    Fair enough, I understand your concerns with the driveline. On the cam, I only have an LS1 so different I acknowledge but I was told the cam I have would be too small so not be worth it (216/220 112) and yet despite small headers and exhaust and stock manifold with Higgins ported 241 heads it made just under 300 at the wheels and a lot more under the curve. I am now looking at a different cam that people are telling me not to bother with that should be quite stealthy and drivable (218/226 116) so it will be interesting to see what happens there too.

    For reference there is a guy on a few forums with an LS2 VZ Senator and he runs a Fast 102, Higgins ported 243 and a Comp 212/218 115 through a stock HSV exhaust for 300 rwkw.

    Are you selling the 243 heads?

    I want to run a similar cam to the one you're running (which will be even milder with the bigger cubes). I'd be interested in selling my heads but I think the head swap is 6 months off. Are you running manual or auto? If auto, standard stall?

    Yes, the 6 litre will tame a cam like mine even more. My car is a 6 speed manual so in an ls1 I have a bit of bucking but that wouldn't be an issue in an auto. I have had this cam for years too so the newer lobe technology would improve it as well, being an older comp its got a bit of valvetrain noise. It has -6 degrees of overlap from memory so while its no thumper you can hear it at idle with an aftermarket exhaust. The cam I was looking at has -10 degrees overlap so should be undetectable. Although I have been told that on 116 lsa it may have a lot less mid range than my current cam but the manufacturer says good power and torque throughout the rev range.

    With the ported 241s, smaller exhaust and 3.9 diff gears I find my combo very punchy in the low to mid range but it dies a bit up top, with the LS3 top end I would think you would get more up top than I have.

    Oh, it probably doesn't mean much due to being different sort of cars but using a very soft launch this cam combo ran a best of 12.6 and 114 mph with 2.0 60 ft on a warm day in complete street trim (street tyres, full weight inc my fat arse and 3/4 tank of petrol). At the strip you could really feel it drop off at the top but i chose it as a street combo not a race car.

    Was going to say make your own but Mace thing comes with pod filter & brackets too..might be ok when break it down price for parts vs time.

    Add corrugated hose from spoiler/spotlight hole to base shoiuld be all you need although p-plate worthy induction noise.

    Were a couple vz senators with 2800 stally/3.9 cracking 11 bracket on radials few years back
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Hopefully the 250kg weight saving I have over a Senator makes up for the lack of stall/gears

    Got the hood lining done today



    Nothing is more annoying than a droopy headlining on a shaved head

    Ordered a Mace airbox and some 235 drag radials

    Booked in for exhaust next Wednesday. Going to run dual 2 1/2 through resonators and marry up with the 3 inch muffler currently there. Will be flanged so that I can try a 3 1/2 inch rear muffler

    Was going to suggest a VT airbox with either the ag pipe to wheelarch or just the two hole mod in the bay, have seen them on VN-VS before.

    Dunno but apparently the m80 rear from a VT bolts in (with a mod to the input flange)
