    New cam and intake

    99 Z28 M6 I want a cam with good idle quality, but can also make power to about 6500 rpm. I was told to go for the ls6 intake instead of the fast intake also. What do you guys think? Which cam would give me these requirements and should I spend extra bucks on the 90mm Fast setup? I have SLP longtubes and Y-pipe with no cats, and the car already has an airlid and hardened pushrods, oh yeah, and 4.10 gears.

    I would go with the LS6 intake. Especially for the money compared to the Fast system. Cam wise That is iffy. I have the comp cam 232/234 dur 595-598 lift on a 112 lsa. It has a lopey idle and makes power to 6400 rpm. Damn good all around cam.

    Thanks Big D. I think I will get the same cam you are using and the ls6 intake. I am currently bidding on those same springs you are also using. I am going to use that same setup until I get the supercharger. Is there a cam that would be good for both a supercharger and naturally aspirated ls1's?
