    Ok this is what i got so far

    99' Ls1 w/ARP Rod Bolts
    Stg 2ish early model Z06 heads with Patriot Gold springs (flow 314cfm)
    Victor Jr Carb Intake
    N20 shot of 150-200 (maybe dual stage 100 shot)
    LT BBC Chevy Headers w/Ls1 Flanges (so 1 3/4"-2" tubes depending on brand)
    TH-350 w/Unknown 38-4000 Rpm Stall Converter (your opinions needed)

    Cam???? Big one, im talking like a MS4, G5X3, and yadda yadda. Thats why I need opinions on the matter. Im out on the G5X3, was not happy with my 98 LS1 with all boltons only making 398rwhp, I had to add N20 to get it passed 400rwhp to the tune of 514rwhp. This is going in a 70 Camaro so I need a big lopey cam

    how much of a improvment is the ms4 over the ms3? I would get a custom grind to be honest along with custom stall from a local shop.

    oh what kind of power are you looking for?

    maybe a 23x/24x duration with .600+ lift on 113 or so.

    how does that sound?

    to be honest I want 440rwhp (cam & heads only)or more, I am most likely gonna run a 200 (100+100) shot or even a 300 dual stage (150+150)shot. I like the juice, my last car did 514rwhp on it and 398rwhp without out on a LS1 with just a G5X3 cam. My G5X3 was a 114LSA cam and it was pretty choppy, kinda want this car to sound like it will barley run :D

    yea thats what I just found out, seems all the off the shelf cams are geared towards FI. Mellowyellow was gonna sell me his RPM5 cam but now I think I might have to go with a custom grind......dammit, more money I have to spend:(
