Re: l99 to ls3 swap question???

I am mostly ignorant to the newer Camaro's, but it looks from brief reading that the L99 came with automatics, where the LS3 came with manuals.

Camshaft Upgrade - Too Fine L99 - GM High-Tech Performance Magazine

I am not sure you can really call it a swap. Look at the differences listed in the article. To make it an LS3, there would have had to have been a cam swap, changes to the heads, and unknown changes to the computer to disable the AFM and VVT components.

If you still have contact, I would verify what was actually done.
