Anyone ever considered doing this? It's all electronically controlled, reasonable fuel economy.

Since the car weigh's more, I have heard the power would have to be turned down, but would this make an immence difference in power, torque is up a little, HP up alot.

Physically, it could easily be done. Electronically would be a bit harder. The car wouldn't give a hoot about the extra power, but the tranny and rear end would have to be beefed up. It would move better, but honestly, the stock LT1's can be bored up cammed up, and make the same 400 odd horses. Fuel economy would suffer, but it could probably be done to run efficiently as well, just a lot of tuning and tweaking.
