    currently, my exact set up. im putting down over 400+ rwhp. you could even step up to a 228 or a TSP Torquer v2 cam for an even more solid 425rwhp car (with supporting mods)...

    99-TR214/220-115-2 Thunder Racing Custom Camshaft
    "Old Man Cam" - 214/220 .600/.523 115 LSA This is the perfect cam for someone looking for a stock range power band and stock sounding idle. Significant horsepower gains throughout the RPM range. No computer tuning required. Due to the fast ramp rate of this camshaft, the use of 1.8 rockers is not recommended.

    Would a hypertech tune work with the cam upgrade or do u need another such as LS1 edit?

    The G5X3 is pretty badass. You'll like it if you are set up for it.
