The Z06 doesn't have an LS3. C5 Z06's had the 5.7L LS6 and the new C6 Z06 has the 7.0L LS7. Regular C6's and Camaro SS have the 6.2L LS3.

Nice car though, and always cool to see a LS swap

Nissan 240's are popular LS swaps. The LS series is so versatile it can literally be swapped into anything without too much fuss. I'd love to see more pics of your stingray
