    Hi everyone, ive got an auto vx ls1 with an otr, shift kit, diffilipo 2.5" full system, and a tranny cooler. Im soon about to get a cam, 6L heads, 3:9 diff gears and 3K high stall installed, is there anything people would recommend to get done with these things? and is there anything else that I should look at with getting more power out of my ls1 without using forced induction? It is going to be a street car for weekend cruises and sometimes taken down the drag strip, just want to get it built right so I don't destroy it.
    Thanks!

    Replace the lifters while the heads are off.

    Okay cheers, are there any other performance upgrades I should consider apart from getting a stronger box and drive shaft? What are your thoughts on the under drive pulley upgrade? Or anything to make the car run better?

    Sadistic Critter hasn't been on here since the day after he started this thread and that's pretty much one and half years ago.
    If you're after ideas on cam choices best off doing some reading and /or asking for some advice with also telling us what been done to car ,or you intend to do , how's the car being used , what you want to get out of it , other plans for it and someone will be able to suggest some options/ choices.
