    I'll have to depend on my cars lighter curb weight. That and a flux capacitor.

    So, with a good cam and a few bolt-ons? I probably would want a good port job on the heads while I was at it? Or will they be up to the job for flowing over 400 rwhp? I also would like to keep the stock LS-6 intake.

    You don't have the typical procharger set up either. I really like what you've done with your car and set up. You have my favorite 4th gen fbody, a 35th anniversary.

    There is a procharger set up on ebay that I believe is 6700 installed and tuned. However I'm well aware that going FI doesn't stop at just the induction set up. FI can be a wallet emptying proposition but it's a lot of fun.

    Yes you can get there with stock heads. You can keep the ls6 intake just P&P the TB. I would not spend the money on stock heads but that's just me. I would go with a nice kit and upgrade the heads before I took them off and had any work done, but again that is just me.

    " I would go with a nice kit and upgrade the heads before I took them off and had any work done"-what kind of "kit" are you speaking of? You lost me there.

    By kit, I believe he meant get one that comes as a package: heads/cam/etc. While changing the cam you should also do an oil pump upgrade, hardened push rods, valve springs, and a timing chain. I believe some of the offerings from some companies put all this into one package to make it easier on the buyer, plus you probably get an added discount for purchasing it all at once.

    Looks like the same kit Vengeance sells except $400.00 more....Summit is bending people over. Plus you can pick your cam with Vengeance. https://www.vengeancerd.com/ecart/pr...%26-Cam-Combo#


    I paid well under $3000 for my entire H/C build. 2.5 LS6 heads, V3 cam, 42# injectors, oil pump, timimg chain, LS7 lifters & trays, UD pulley & belts.

    Yes I meant head and cam kit. I meant to say I would upgrade to better heads with a H/C package rather than mess with the stock heads.

    Ah, okay. I got confused because you had suggested earlier to not buy heads and stick with the stockers.

    Sorry about that. Just to clarify you can meet your goals with no work to your stock heads. A cam, bolt-ons and tune will put you there. If you decide to make the heads part of your upgrade I would not waste any time or money messing with the stock heads. I would just upgrade the heads by getting a nice head/cam package like the trick flow or one of the TSP ones I posted a link to. I hope this helps. Good luck with school and your car.

    Consumption, emissions, driveability are all dependent on the mood and the size of a cam you run ... 224 and 243S cam worn (Z06 heads) appear to be a popular option .... But there are plenty of them. ...

    I am running Texas Speed stuff. The prices are very reasonable.
