    I have just started to look for a cam myself. For me this will be a long ways off, but I need to think about some kind of mod for the car. So far I am leaning towards TSP's Torquer 2 myself. Another consideration I have been thinking is something like their 228/228 cam or the 224/224.

    youll be right around 400 and streetable.
    you wont be replacing springs often.
    i have always changed springs at 25k, but thats a personal choice.

    TSP Tv.2...

    I have a TSP 231/237 i plan to install over the winter. I have a comp cam 224 in right now (currently making 444rwhp), and also have the XS headers (through y-pipe and SLP LM), but switching it out for TSP TD's this weekend. BTW, IMO, skip over the Ls6 and go FAST 90/90 and port it. you will be happy that you did...

    If you are unsure of any of those cam's being 'too' big go with the V2, can't go wrong. MS3 is a dog down low but with the right setup, preferably M6 it won't be as bad. Go V2 and spray that bitch

    Either one of those you should change springs every 25-30k, but those two cams have quite different characteristics, one being more for top end and the other for lower and more mid range. Choose waht you want but they both have some hefty lifts/ramp rates and wil require periodic spring changes
