LS3 vs 396 BBC
Ok guys, I finally was able to take my Vert for a longer test run. (Only about a mile) Comparing my 396 to this LS3/495 crate engine so far I’m not really impressed. My 396 had a custom roller cam, aluminum heads, aluminum intake,Holley HP 750 and pulled like no tomorrow. I don’t even have 2 miles on this LS3 so I will have to get some more miles on it I guess to give a real opinion on performance. The rear gears are the same 373’s. Just sayin......
