Custom install of a 3" stainless steel system to let the LS3 breath
Since the GTO is going to be the shop's car, Jon decided a lot of horse power was a good idea, but crazy horse power would be even better...so the LS1 has been swapped for a custom built Wagner LS3. The new LS3 is same base engine that was used in the Nickey Camaro. The LS3 runs a radical Stage 2 cam, and MSD Atomic fuel rails. The horse power is transfered to the Tremec T56 manual 6 speed through a CenterForce DYAD DS twin disc cluth assembly.
