Best Cam for LS6
What is the best cam to install for a stock LS6? I want to install a better cam without changing heads, springs or pushrods. I want to be able to drive it on the streets and also the drag strip.
Its an A4.

Do you have an A4 or a M6? Changing the cam needs a tune for an A4. I personally would not change a cam out without at the very least getting chromoly pushrods.
Take a look at TR website: http://www.thunderracing.com/catalog...&vid=7&pcid=51
I would probably go with one of the ones below since you aren't going to be changing the springs. Going anymore aggressive could warrant problems especially if you are a higher mileage vehicle.

Your stock valvesprings can barely handle your stock cam.
If you don't want to swap valvesprings, you shouldn't change your cam.

Its an A4 and the heads are brand new. I have not installed the heads yet.
