LS1 - Additional Horsepower
 
I currently own a C7 Z06 and am not looking for additional power! My question is about my wife's 2002 "standard" Vette with 2:73 (I believe) gears and an automatic. I've read that there are "kits" out there, head and cam etc. that add a significant amount of power to a stock LS1. Has anyone out there had experience with a combo that works well with an automatic and maintains good drivability?Or maybe swapped in an LS3?

Ls1 350 hp. Ls3 440. Swap in an ls3

I'm not up on current supercharger applications anymore but that might be a fairly simple application for more power. The Magnachargers needed a taller hood but as I recall the Edelbrock unit would fit under the factory hood.

Just a consideration.

Head, cam, headers. cold air intake can get you about 100HP with no problem. You will have to add a stall torque converter to keep your car from stalling when coming to a stop with that set-up. Easier scenario, buy her a C7 with the LT1!

An LS3 would require a new PCM. You can add a head/cam package and pick up some power but will cause stall problems with the stock converter. Either way, it will cost you some money. Why not but her a C7 Stingray with a LT1 460 HP!
