    help choosing cam and necessary parts

    hey guys I have a 2000 c5 m6 with LG street LT's, 178 thermo, tbody bypass, xpipe, borla stingers, hurricane ram air, bigger maf and bigger TB. with a tune Im at 350rwhp right now. I want to swap my stock cam for the biggest streetable cam that would work well. I also need to know what parts (in addition to the cam itself) I should buy. I will be upgrading to a zo6 intake during the install also.
    for the cam, I am thinking a 228/228 112lsa. What do you guys think? What other parts would I need to buy besides the new intake manifold?

    Thanks
    Anthony

    hey man sounds like your off to a good start! the cam your looking at can be very streetable and even seen some bigger cams than that run on the street with a good tune.
    you'll also need vavle springs and probably pushrods. also ported oil pump and ls2 timing chain are highly recomended
    good luck!

    there are bigger cams out there but i would suggest the 228.
    the 228 cam is about the best street cam out there
