I personally would do heads/cam/double timing chain,ls6 oil pump all at the same time. You can get a package deal from Texas Speed. They have the MAGIC STICK 3 or 4 cam which is awsome from what I read.

I would do a heads/cam combo at the same time. It's better to be able to match them together at the same time compared to doing one or the other and then trying to match up later. The latter would most likely be a more expensive route for you.
For example, say you went cam only. Most want a monster cam to give them the HP/TQ numbers. With that said, it's fine. However later when you want to add your ported heads you will most likely have to flycut your pistons to clear the cam. Now you added extra costs for new pistons, flycut labor, and/or a new cam altogether.Eric @ WAR (Formerly Eric @ DMS)
