    I would go with a comp cam 226/230 or 228/232 XER lobes. Also depending on how many miles your engine has I would replace the lifters,valve seals,springs,pushrods,oil pump,and have your factory heads milled .010.

    Also if you want people to know you have a cam I would go with a 111 or 112 LSA ,but if you could care less or want a stock sounding cam go with a 114 LSA.

    I agree with incbed, if I where an M6 I might even look at a 109-110 lsa for alittle more grunt...but if your going to do a head swap soon, I'd wait till then to do the lifters.
    For good insurance, I'd do the oil pump upgrade and while you have the oilpan down get a set of ARP or Katech rod bolts to replace your stock ones (the stock rod bolts are the weak link in these bottom ends)

    FM1-F13-112 FMS Custom Grind Camshaft - 230"/232" .595"/.585" 112LSA - aggressive profile with a 2500-6800 RPM range, rough idle

    This is a nice DD cam for an M6. May even want to go a tad bigger with a F14....

    If smog is an issue then a 224/224 114lsa, otherwise it all depends on were you want the power (low,med.,or high rpm range).
    IMO, a 228/228 112lsa would be a good choice for a DD.
