Is this a good setup?
An LT1 with intake, SFC, exhaust, a good cam thats more on the daily driver side, maybe a shift kit and a tune? and possible 3.73 gears
Im trying to figure out more about the cams so would the power from the cam still need to upgrade to a stonger rear end axle?

No not my car in the avator, im saying if you cam an LT1 would u need to get a new stronger rear end, along with intake, exhuast, 373 gears, shift kit and a tune

If you put a cam you can keep the stock intake.
The rear end will hold up O.K.
Exhaust will help with the cam or without the cam.
3:73's will help no matter what and combine that with a stall.
The tune goes along with the cam if you wanna get the most out of it.
Installing a cam doesn't mean you have to do all of these other mods, but it helps.
Try to ask one question at a time and let us know what your goals are so we can better answer your questions. And it might be a good idea to post this question in the LT1 section.

Well im getting desperate finding an LS1 so I am thinking about going for an LT1 and mod it up. Its mostly going to be a DD and sometimes I am going to take it out to the drag strip. If I get an LT1 I am trying to get it to atleast be a little faster then the LS1 but I don't want to spend the 2 grand into getting a 9 inch or a 12 bolt.
I am worried if I get the LT1 and put a cam in it, that it would tear apart the rear end so bottom line is im asking if a camed LT1 would hold up with a stock rear end.
