I'd love to get a hold of a LS-3 and do my thing on that one.
low buck 5.3L LS out of a truck with a B&M/Weiand blower and a few tweeks would be fun too.
A ton of potential in these motors.
Exactly, you can pick up a 5.3L for $500 if you keep an eye out. Clean up the heads, cam and spring swap, headers and a used intake swap and bam, 450hp that is VERY driveable, will last a LONG time, and requires no continual fiddling (like a carb).
If I get the new job/raise I'm looking at I'll be picking up an '06-'07 CTSV for a cam, headers, and exhaust upgrade. Leave the rest stock and put a million miles on it.
