    so i got approval from the woman to finish the build on my TA...

    to finish her off...ls7 heads...and an sts rear mount..

    now i know alot of shit needs replaced when doing the head/ and adding a power adder...

    how much does anyone think this will cost? and are ls7 heads the way to go or should i do something else?

    EDIT: are the two lower fog lights hard to change?

    I would just do a semi-large procharger. With your cam+LS7 heads+procharger= really good power. Oh, and your gonna need a clutch.

    about the same. go with the procharger if your planning on drag.

    if the highway is more your thing than the remote mount is the way to go.

    LS7 heads wont even come close to fitting an LS1. U sure you dont mean LS6 heads? If youre wanting to go FI then I would suggest a set of 6.0 heads to reduce some compression.

    Are you doing the install yourself or having a shop do it?
