    I need help picking the right cam

    I have a 2000 Z28 with an LS1. I'm thinking about getting a cam I could run with stock heads but keeping it a daily driver. As of now, I have Edelbrock short tube headers, and a full Corsa exhaust system. In a few months I'm going to install a new intake manifold and throttle body with the slp "flo-pac". But after I do all that I want to get a cam. I was looking through some of the threads and a lot of people were mentioning the 224/224 cams. Is there any cam in particular I should look into? Also, I don't want the cam to sound really crazy at an idle, I want it to sound smooth. Any suggestions?

    BTW, this is what my car looks like.

    what intake? if its not a fast 90/90 or 92/92 then dont even think about swapping the Tb..also hate to tell you but shorties are pointless. get LTs then a fast 90/90+ then we will talk about getting you a great cam

    dont waste your money on the slp flo pack.
    to best help the cam breath, long tube headers would be your best option.
    as for cams, for a daily driver the 224 or the 228 are perfect.

    Im not looking at getting a cam anytime soon, although it would be fun to put one in the 3.8.

    But I was wondering how an MS4 cam ranks, i see it pop up a lot of places.
