Headers is another area that use to be a pain and now is relatively simple. Quite a few companies bend up pipes for various Camaros, but we thought we would try out these new ceramic-coated long tubes from Edelbrock. These conversion headers are 1 3/4-inch and step to 1 7/8-inch with 3 1/2-inch collectors. They also come in their Ti-Tech coating, which is ceramic based.

You can spend as much or as little on pulleys as you want. In this case, we just wanted something functional and reliable, and this kit from GMPP fit the bill perfectly. The kit (PN 19155067) included a 150-amp alternator, power steering pump, V7 variable displacement A/C compressor, and all the brackets, tensioners, and belts needed. Since Mary isn't going to run A/C, she was able to use a kit that omits this (PN 19155167). The GMPP kit with A/C runs around $800, and the kit without comes in at a budget-friendly $630.

Given that the GMPP kit uses all OEM quality parts, installing it was very easy and everything fit perfectly. We should note that the low mounting of the A/C compressor wouldn't work in a Camaro application without frame modifications.

EFI-fed LS engines require a rock-solid supply of fuel delivered at around 59 psi. Now this is another area where you can save some money, but Mary is rather hard on her Camaro and wanted top-shelf components. With that in mind, we dialed up Aeromotive and ordered enough parts to feed her LS3.

Our fuel line is AN-06, so we used a step down fitting to connect it to the braided fuel line coming from our regulator. We were also careful to route the fuel line away from heat sources like the headers and exhaust.

And here's our pulley system all installed and looking good. If you're on a super tight budget you could source something like this from a bone yard, but we feel the convenience of having all the bolts, nuts, and widgets along with the sparkly new parts is worth the asking price.

It's easy to overcomplicate a fuel system, but this one is simple. Fuel from the tank enters the 100-micron filter (PN 12304) on the left then pulled through the pump into a 10-micron filter (PN 12301) before going to the bypass regulator (PN 13109). The return off the bottom of the regulator sends the unused fuel back to the gas tank. The pump (PN 11106) is Aeromotive's new billet in-line deal that is rated up to 700 hp in naturally aspirated applications. In some cases an EFI gas tank is required, but due to Mary's driving habits, her tank was already equipped with baffles and a port for the return line.

We then used this trick Aeromotive fitting (PN 15118) to change our factory quick-connect fitting into an -AN style that is easier to integrate. In this case it was from 3/8-inch quick-connect to AN-08.

This kit (PN 19291327) includes the controller, engine harness, mass air flow meter, MAF mounting boss, throttle-by-wire pedal assembly, oxygen sensors, and sensor mounting bosses. The computer comes pre-programmed to run a stock LS3, so we will need to do some tuning due to our earlier cam swap. Cost is typically right around $900.
