    well, if you have a Z06, no need for an LS6 intake seeing you have one already.
    no need for you to change intakes at this time.
    get some sticky tires instead.

    X2 we need to know if it will be a bolt on car or you want a heads/cam package in the future. But i would cross LS2 off the list right away as the LS6 outperformes it!

    if you have an automatic car, get a stall converter.
    if not, i would get an catback exhaust first like a hooker or magnaflow.

    I would like to get as much power out of it while still keeping it a daily driver. Its a M6. I have the loudmouth II and the slp cold induction package on it now. Adding a cam will take away my MPG wont it????

    heads can let the engine breathe, they can also add to your compression. you slap a set of ls6 heads that have been ported and milled, along with a decent sized cam and you will be tearing some shit up.

    a cam may or may not hurt gas mileage. it depends on what size you go with. your m6 will help with highway miles if you stay in 6th.

    you need headers before a cam.
