    I was going to go with a vengeance Racing package but I just got a bigger motor instead...I think the are tfs 220cc heads. You SHOULD DO intake and Headers first, Torque converter if you are an auto.

    Your budget limit will dictate what to buy.

    TFS and AFR are some of the better aftermarket heads. Lower budget, then stock castings that are CNC'd work fine. Camshafts vary. Seems everyone has their own grinds they like. I personally prefer a custom grind from someone very familiar with the LS package you plan to use. Alot of good grinds out there.

    Might help to call around to various LS suppliers and see what they have to say.

    like stated bolt-on's first. i.e headers slp lid, full exhaust, goo tune, then do H/C/I at the same time if you have the funds. going with a 233/239 tsp cam with a set of AFR 215cc heads and a fast 102 on my V which will yield in the 460's or so with a good dyno tune. but you WILL NEED the header and lid in order to see a good benefit and gains out of a HCI upgrade

    If you are an auto, get a stall in the range of 3400-3800. Best bang for your buck for an auto. If you're a M6, like mentioned, your cam/head selection will highly depend on what your budget is.

    Least expensive route is P&P your stock 241 heads. Next would be to buy 243 heads and get them P&P. Other than that, you would be looking at aftermarket heads from somewhere like Texas Speed; Patriot/AFR/TrickFlow.

    Cam selection depends on a lot of factors. With an auto, you really should match the cam to your driving habits and stall. If you're a M6, lower gears are going to work well with an aftermarket cam.

    Popular choices are the Torquer 2, TSP 228r on a 112 LSA, Magic Stick 3, and the 233/239.

    Whatever cam selection you make, you should also include the following: new valve springs, timing chain, upgraded oil pump, and hardened push rods.

    Texas Speed is where I got my cam and heads. The price was very reasonable. And the speed of the shipping was good.

    Best would be aftermarket castings but you can make decent power with budget GM ported heads. I made 442rwhp on a Mustang dyno with 2.5 LS6 heads, Torquer V3, FAST 92/92. I'm about $2600 in it for everything I needed for my build...UD pulley, injectors, lifters, belts, oil pump, timing chain etc. FAST intake was extra but it gave me almost 20rwhp.
