    Do not cam the motor until you have the necessary bolt-ons.

    What mods do you have done already.

    There is stuff you gotta do before a cam swap.

    Headers,exaust and a few air mods, nothing major. I do plan on ordering the lifters and springs when I order the cam. what bolt ons do I need first? I was also going to go with a different set of heads or I was thinking on just getting my stock heads ported, what do u guys think? Also was thinking on 4 10's, will that be okay with my stock readend and 6 speed stalk tranny?

    Well I believe one should upgrade the whole drivetrain on a 6 speed before going into the motor. ie. rear end, clutch, driveshaft etc. I've seen head/cam cars with 18' rims and stock rear end that run 12s (sometimes worse)cause they can't launch it right. Pretty gay imo. A 12 bolt/9 inch is exspensive but a great investment.

    1999 trans am

    well i just went through what ur dealing with... i have a 99 trans am. with headers.exhaust..cold air intake.. slp intake manifold..ported tb.stage 2 + clutch. i went with texas speed heads and cam.. 2.5 ls6 heads.228r cam. u get pushrods.ls6 oil pump and ls2 timing chain.. the cam has a 114 lope for a kinda stock sound.. for the street.. revs nice. good power.. but its all about the tune and supporting mods.. def think about ur rear and.. she needs a lil loving to make the beast get all the power. and subframe connecters so u dont twist ur frame.. i know its one thing after another and its expensive but its worth it.

    Well thus far I have a ls1 leingenfelter Gt1-1 cam sitting here on my floor, waiting on springs. I have on my car a set of hooker headers, Already have sub frame connectors, stage 2 clutch (centerforce) I also ordered a p&p throttle body just as a temp, I'm strongly considering the typhoon 85mm intake manifold w/ throttle body, I'm kinda holding back tho because I'm hoping for the 96 or 101mm to come out soon, and then I can pair that up with a set of trick flow heads. I'm really wanting the trick flows but id probably settle for a set of used patriot heads if it was a good enough deal lol. I def want 243 casting.
