    Why do you want such a huge cam? What are the supporting mods? Is this a track car?

    i would go with the last one. Looks to have a good range, not too big, and will be streetable but lopey with the 112LSA

    Are you sure those are LSx cams, the rocker ratios are wrong. I don't know what a cc306 is, but there is more to picking a cam then peak hp.

    alot of things to consider will you drive the car daily, sometimes making "big" numbers is not everything, most of the guys i know that have put big cams in their cars end up selling them, or putting in a smaller cam

    I wouldn't just go for the cam that will get you the highest numbers. Sure, if you have the money and you just want to brag about your dyno numbers then sure you could do that. But you probably wont enjoy it unless you pick a cam that really fits what your car is built for and what you really want it for. Smaller cams may not put out as high of numbers as the larger ones, but can be a faster.
