    My book says the 02 Z06 is .551/.555 lift, 218/204 duration, 117.5 lsa. Lift is with 1.7 rockers. 1.8 rockers will get you .583/.588 lift.

    I know what you're all dealing with when it comes to a cam upgrade. I'm struggling with it myself. I have an 02 LS1 and I picked up a set of 02 Z06 heads and cam and was set on the Z06 cam but on inspection, the cam has a defect on one of the lobes. The guy I got it from was cool about it after I sent him a pic and he gave me the money back for the cam. You can get a new Z06 cam for just over $200, or you can get after market stuff for around $400. The money doesn't really mater. What matters to me is streetability first and increased performance second. I have no interest in putting in a cam that "sounds mean". I don't want a cam that dogs my low end performance down so the kid in the Celica with the 6 foot tall spoiler actually has a snowball's chance of screwing with me on the street. I don't want my car "searching" for idle. I want results under normal driving conditions and I want to be able to get on the highway and take a trip if I feel like it. Oh, and I don't want a cam that's going to make my gas mileage worse than it is. I want a cam that'll perform with my stock exhaust and also if I decide to upgrade.

    Now, who has an 02 SS LS1 M6 with 4.11 gears that they put Z06 heads on with the sodium valves, crane dual springs and titanium retainers, crane 1.8 vhp rockers, has oem exhaust, drives it every day, gets 20 mpg or more, has no driveability issues, has good torque from 2k - 6k rpms, and puts down at least 375 RWHP and turns the quarter in less than 12 seconds consistently? And just what cam is that? That's the one I want!
