    Yes. Well I didn't sleeve it or do the machine work. But i assembled the longblock myself. Me and a few buddies did the install (some things are tough to do with only one set of hands) and another buddy tuned it. Done plenty of blower installs on ls3's.

    10k with a tune and install aint bad. Depends on which blower though. Blower is around 7500. Tune is 600-800. What about fuel system upgrades...injectors specifically. Stay away from Hennessey.

    So for the SC, I'm thinking about A&A or Edelbrock eForce. I like the looks of the Edelbrock but I've heard really good things about A&A. What are your thoughts? Also, I know to stay away from Hennessy. Can you recommend a shop in the Houston area?

    Two totally different animals. what are your goals? The e-force is going to produce a lot of heat and limit your Peak power. Personally I prefer the Maggie heartbeat over that blower. With the A&A, the sky is the limit as far as power. If you're willing to change the hood you could also look at the Whipple. Do you have a problem with turbos?

    As far as shops in the Houston area, you don't get much better than LMR.
