    Still, if I had a L05, I honestly would start with a set of Vortec heads and an appropriate intake. If you really are serious, you can get a Marine Vortec intake and install it (plastic) and then put your L05 TBI on it. It would gain 50 hp roughly over stock L05, often has better base gearing than the LT1, and picks up nearly as much HP. Tune the PCM for it, maybe ensure the cam is at least specs for the LT1 B/D cam, or maybe the 96-99 Vortec cam specs (they are very close, the LT1 very slightly larger). This would make a good fuel economy and drivability cam.

    Then revise the PCM tune and you have an excellent daily driven car that would be a joy to drive. All for under $800 (using stock TBI intake)

    Now I understand fully why there is such a hatred to the L03/L05 heads!

    They were on drugs when they came up with these heads!

    I'll take my 301 heads over these heads stock to stock...
