    Cam

    I need some opinions on cam for my 02 Z28 m6. I leaning into getting a motor only cam. I want to get the S cam from HPE, I know its a nitrous cam but a friend of mine has it he has put up some good numbers with this cam on motor only and stock heads. So should I get this cam? Or get this cam and lower the lsa on it? Or is there a better motor only cam out there? I want the most horsepower I can get with my stock heads. I do plan on getting heads somwhere down the road. Thanks for your help.

    Do a nitrous cam only if you plan on getting nitrous.

    Hell, basic 224/224 cams are making close to/right at 400 RWHP with tune and stock heads.

    I always just assume guys looking to cam a car have probably got most of the bolt-ons.
    I know...I know...I shouldn't

    a 228/228 cam from texas speed and performance would fit the bill.
