$1,700=11.40@119mph if you choose the right parts and don't buy usless parts like a Throttle body, MAF sensor , thermostats, 1.8RR,Hypertech Programmer etc..... With just a few wise choices l11' s are easy with under 2K in a LS1!....My route was as follows:
Pacesetter uncoated headers with bullet turndowns, locally ported heads, Hammer cam,(Don't wast your time nor money on wimpy cams like the Hot cam) , home ported T/B,stock injectors stock rear end, and all the free mods.
