    Stock Motor

    I have a stock motor, I have to change out the water pump, so I figure while I had that out of the way I'd change the cam as well. Just wondering what a good duration I could run with stock heads etc. Thanks

    With any cam change a new matched set of valvesprings is a must so keep that in mind.
    As for Cam's theres are literally hundreds that will work well with stock heads.

    I just installed the TSP 228r 112lsa along with some longtubes. Still have stock heads but I did have to change out my valve springs and went with hardened push rods as well. Im at 392 to the rear wheels. Cam is very streetable, still has plenty of low end power. Really all depends what your looking for. Like 9T8W66 said there are many options.
