    Best cam for .600 max lift?

    This Ls1 is a six speed with 4.10s. i was wondering whats the wildests and best cams i could run with my Comp Cams springs with .600 lift max rating. It will see street action. I like to live in the 2200rpm range if that helps.

    new to this, so please bear with me. can you elaborate a little more on the LSA and how it effects the lope and power curve.

    installed a Lunati Voodoo # 60511, IN/EX 222/228, Gross Valve Lift IN/EX .567"/.567", LSA / ICL 113/109, Valve Lash IN/EX Hyd/Hyd, RPM Range2000-7000.

    it is supposed to have good street manners. with the stock tune, the TPS???sensor light comes on, shifting is now eratic, loss of vacuum on brakes and doesnt really do much until 3000+. i took it to a guy to tune it and it still runs like crap (dont trust his tuning capabilities though).

    without a tune will it run that bad?
    will a tune imrove the driveability drastically?
    what is the TPS sensor?
    any ideas what needs to be changed when being tuned?

    Thanks guys.

    If you have the valve train, then go for lunati 300/300, but i would recomend Comp Cams XER273HR, that is an awesome cam, 224/230 0,581/0,588 and 114 lsa. it has a very smooth idle awesome midrange and pulls to 7000.
    It runs best with a ecu tune.
