With the air intake installed and the A/C system recharged, the new LS3 looks like it came in the Camaro from GM, and that’s the idea. The only real weak point we saw was the 72mm LS1 MAF that we felt would choke the LS3 a bit. But in the name of science, we decided to leave it in place for the first dyno pulls. In case you’re curious, Black Betty fired on the first attempt, and while the check engine light did come on (lean code), we were able to drive the Camaro 10 miles to the dyno with no issues. You can also see where we mounted the Lingenfelter control box on the passenger side strut tower.
