    m6, or a4? is it going to be a daily driver, track car, or weekend toy? any reason you were looking at the reverse split cams instead of a standard cam?
    those cams sound little big to me for standard motor size, but might work ok on a stroker.
    the second cam has awful high lift, that might give you piston to valve clearance problems.
    hopefully one of the stroker guys will jump in and give some good info for you.

    those l92 heads like a specific kind of cam; it's not a place to pinch your pennies. Get one spec'd for your setup and look to save $ somewhere else. It could literally be the difference in loving and hating the car and it's results. Seriously.

    No we sure don't... I tune on a chassis dyno, the street, and the track. One of those should work fine though

    Either cam would run well. I would really look into the new TR MAxx Stroker LSXZ with 254/266 .701/.399 106 LSA. Pulls hard.
