Thats real interesting considerting BTR does not make a Stage 3. haha

They currently only make:
NA Stage 1
Blower Stage 1
Na & Blower Stage 2
Custom Grinds

There is no Stage 3 for the LT1/LT4 platform from BTR currently.

I have a Texas Speed VVT2 Cam kit on my car with ARH headers and a MSD intake manifold. It made 515 whp on a Mustang Dyno.

I had some problems with my first head and cam kit from Texas Speed with some broken inner springs and got new heads this last year from them.

I'd probably guess it's really not many in the world. Probably less than 1000 out of all the Lt1 Lt4's produced.

Here? Guess less than 50? Most people here are REALLY adverse to losing the warranty... As the cars get older, I'd suspect it will go up.

Warranty!?!?!?!?!

You mean to tell me this came with a warranty?

Great....now i find out.

For those with LT1 that did heads and cam, how badly did it affect around town and highway mpg? That is, when not enjoying all the increased HP. 😀

I think it's two things:
1. most C7s are still under warranty
2. Holy crap labor is crazy to install a cam on a dry sump C7

If you're not doing the labor yourself it's about the same price as supercharging, which is close to the same price as buying a Z06

These videos sound so awesome. I really want to do a cam/ported head next winter.

I just wonder how far people with the A8 stock TC can go with them. I know I have read someone say a TSP stage 2 drove great with no issues, but how bad could the stage 3 be lol.

Regarding 2.
I completely agree, it is very labor intensive compared to the LS powered Corvette's. It was common practice to do a cam install in 10 hours including all the valvetrain upgrades on the C5/C6's. Now with the C7's the proper way of doing a cam install requires the LT engine to be removed completely.
