    Have you considered a custom cam where the designer looks at your application and then provides appropriate cam specifications? I am not a big fan of all those donkey dick cams that don't come on in power until the rod bolts are stretching.

    Well, a big cam is gonna be useless without a FAST since those cams usually will build power up to 6800-7k range. An LS6 will typically fall flat over 6300 making the top range of the cam useless and not achieving you total power potential.

    The big cams are nice at the track and pull hard. You will see a difference compared to a medium 22x cam but suck for a daily driver. My car has no balls under 3k rpm's and need to spin over 2200 just to get it to move. If your gonna put it on a daily driving car stick with a 228 duration or lower and 112-114 LSA. At least you'll get low end torque out of the cam.

    I run an MS4 in my LS2, when I switched to the GM performance carb intake and wilson elbow and 90mm TB I saw a gain of 37HP and 42ft lbs over my LS6 intake and stock ported TB

    Do you have a set of heads that will take advantage of the higher lift? What intake are you running?
