    ur really just going to be restricting power. i would do at least LT's and ypipe before going after the cam. u will gain power either way but not alot, the performance cams are typically designed to make power at higher rpm, if you arent flowing up high due to an exhaust restricting the car will fall on its face. so u will have a nasty sounding car with no balls, slow off the line and slow to finish

    hey i got a buddy with a z06 and he wants to sell me his ls6 heads for $450...? good price? i think it'd help my cam breathe a lot up top, what kind of gains could i expect from them? Also where could i get them ported.
    Also my clutch doesn't slip right now but when i get on it or especially when i run someone it gets all mooshy by about 3rd gear. is it gonna go out soon? cause it doesn't slip yet.

    I wouldn't go to the trouble for just stock heads. You should have talked to TSP about some stage 1 ls6 PRCs. They will really wake up that 228.

    wow i didn't realize the heads were only a thousand dollars, i mean that's not money i have right now but a thousand dollars is still alot less than i thought they'd be. I'm realizing slowly that i'll really need a clutch first before i do much more.. and i'm worried about the rear end even though i think it'll last a lot longer.
    maybe i'll just wait until i have that other stuff.
    It doesn't say how much they'd want to do the work to my own heads. is 450 a good price for stock ls6 heads if i planned to get them ported.

    Yeah, worry about the rear end first. I mean, you could have well over 400+rwhp with 228R and TSP ls6 heads, and wha tis all that if you cant use it? Just bite the bullet and get a 12bolt or ford 9" if you are going to be doing any racing.

    Oh, did you get double springs or singles on your car?

    man that's a huge bullet to bite, along with the clutch i need to buy. but yeah that's what i'm hearin from everyone so i'll do that.
    i guess i'll start researchin rear ends, is it a bad idea to go used, how much am i lookin at spending?

    i got double springs just for my peace of mind but i could have gotten single springs

    Used rears are fine, typically about $1500-$1800.

    Ok, thanks. Oh, and I did not mean to put it so bluntly, but I guess for now just go soft on the launches.
