Has to do with the design of the underbody. It is a popular mod to switch to duals, but takes a decent amount of work. Check this out:

as with any GM product, they were focused on being piles of ****.

They really do! Buddy had it on his LS1 for a bit, but the clearance sucked. Makes the typical low hanging aftermarket X pipes for New Edges seem sky-high. He switched back. It sounded awesome, but it was just too low.

I agree with you bro. As I've stated previously, anything that makes less horsepower than a 1989 Taurus SHO can't claim to be "built for speed"

The 4th Gen Camaro was built around the LT1/LS1. Both were very fast cars in their day, and still are in some respects. Of course they offered a more fuel efficient model with less power, but that doesn't mean the car was built for it...
