    needing some cam help or info...

    I'm getting ready to install my new ls6 crate motor, but before I do I had a cam done for me. the specs are .578 in .578 ex. duration is 286 in and 290 ex lobe sep is 112. Now is this decent? Not to sound stupid but a friend came up with this, but he has been having nothing but problems with his sh!t and I'm worried now. He knows what hes doing but still worried. What I have now is.... LS6 crate motor (stock ls6 heads), nx wet kit(will use a 100shot) qtp long tubes, 2 1/2 true duals, spec clutch, slp cold air kit & maf, k&n, 160 thermo, ls6 intake, 42lb injectors, I will upgrade the timing chain and pushrods when the cam is installed. I think thats it. The guy also tuned my computer for the parts. My question is, is that cam decent?? Any help would be great. also chasis parts are, poly motor and trans mounts, tubular umi k member, umi adjustable upper and lower a arms, sub frame connecters, tubular panhard bar and control arms, working on the tunnel brace and torque arm. thanks!

    Any idea what the specs are (duration) at .050?

    Guessing 228 to 232 'ish'

    Sounds like a good cam for a nice even powerband.
