    Cam is really dependent on what you're looking for. Being a dd i would be cautious as to what you end up with, anything too radical and you might end up hating it. If you haven't already i recommend reading through this, should give you a better idea on what exactly you want.

    Also when it comes to heads/cam and even just bolt-ons you want to have it tuned by an experienced tuner. Handhelds don't come close to what an experienced tuner can do for your car, especially with a H/C swap.

    Talk with Frost see what he would be able to suggest. Depending on the cam and your bolt on's he might already have a tune that will work for you.

    The comp 224/230 is a great cam, I drove it for about a year with no problems.

    LoveFab over in TC has a dyno and the ability to tune. When I fist started messing with it he helped me out. He's doing a dyno day on June 1st also. His current build for Pikes Peak is utilizing the same LS1 motors we have in our car.

    Thirlby's has a machine shop on Division (US31) that everyone around here uses. There was another guy, however he retired. Tell them Mark Wilson at the 8th Street location sent you over.
