    I'm confused...you have a 1996 Z28, but you're looking at LS1 Camshafts. This leads to another thing...if you DO have a LS1, you already have 1.7 Rocker Arms.

    Ah ok...yes, those kits are fine, although some people like to upgrade their lifters and rocker arms.

    If you want more lift get TSP's 224 cam, it has something like .581 lift, I would leave the factory rockers, which are 1.7's, and on the tune it depends on if your an a4 or m6 and also what LSA you go with.

    A4 Ill want 112 for the lower power band .... With that lower duration as well, i wana keep my power band low- mid range....i dont plan on getting a lower gear rear end since im a daily driver....That magic stick cam looks awesome, guys pushing 380-400+ with headers, lid, ORY, and ls6 intake....

    If you're looking for a 224R, buy a 228R from Texas Speed and trade me for my 224R (never used)

    With the 112 on an A4, you will probably want to go ahead and get a tune. Without a tune it will be a PITA to drive. I would suggest getting a converter as well.
