    Is the car just a weekend warrior or a daily driver? Do you track it? Are you planning to do a stall too? Are you looking for more low-end torque or top-end? Do you have stock gear ratio in the rear?

    Those are important questions to think about which will help decide. You can get a little more aggressive since you're an M6 and not sacrifice driveability.
    It's on jackstands.

    Sorry it's a daily driver. I take it to the track when it's warmer. I have 4.10 gears Moser gears. T56 tick performance level 1 gears. Ls7 clutch package. Pacesetter long tube headers and Texas speed Rumbler catback. I'm looking for a little more hp and torque.

    FBJ recommends the 228 cams for DD or mild bolt on's like you have. Got to give you a warning though increasing engine output will raise the risk on blowing the rear. Street tires you should be ok as long as you don't launch it at 4k rpms or above.

    What ever cam you get try to get it as a package deal that comes with the cam and springs together. You'll also need to plan on new push rods as well as tuning.

    Thank you very much. I'm planning to get cam kit that comes with all of parts. I don't launch 4k. I can't get traction on the tires that I have. I appreciate all of your help.

    Check out Texas-Speed they have some good advice when you call their help desk. Personally I'm doing their As-Cast heads with a 233/239 cam. The whole package is like 2500 but you also need to consider a larger volume oil pump (ported LS6 or Melling) timing chain, fuel pump and injectors. A lot of little stuff but it'll just maximize the performance

    Also check out tick performance. Martin does some excellent custom grinds and stocks lots of off the shelf typical grinds.

    At the track this summer I was talking to a guy who has a pair of Z06's and he was running Brian Tooley custom ground cams...he had a lot of good things to say, maybe check him out too.
