cam - 248/260 .658/.660 114
ported heads
fast 102 intake
ported throttle body
1 7/8 long tubes with high flow cats

generally at wot a good a/f is 12.9-13.1. From what I seen, the LS7 seems to like 12.5-12.6

12.2-12.8. Some cars like it richer, some leaner. Mine is dialed in around 12.6.

I prefer to keep the LS7 stuff around 12.5

Also depends on where you are measuring the a/f at. If measuring from a w/b 02 bung in the header, I always shoot for ~12.5ish. I do favor conservatism in my tuning though.
