    Looking to do a cam kit this winter, i would like to get a little more performance and chop to my car what is a decent cam for this? I understand some cams require different pushrod lengths and stuff also.

    GM LT4 Hot Cam, it is a roller cam so no flat lobes to deal with.

    probably LOW compression w/ Big chambers & Dish pistons; fixing that's gonna take more than just a thinner head gasket.

    I think people have reported that they love their Comp Cams HE268 cams. That's probably the biggest reasonable cam for a stock engine. The voodoo cam is probably hotter with faster ramps and all. I have bought many Eddy Performer cams and they are tame like a stock cam imo. The cam companies may have a better suggestion.

    New flat top pistons are in store if you have dished ones. Dished will be 9:1 and lower cr.

    TFS DHC 175 heads have 60cc chamber (~ $1500/pr); those w/ shim gasket will create good quench and compression ~ 9.9:1.
    then pick an ideal cam.

    Personally I like the Crane 274H06. It's basically the same as the Comp HE268 but on a 106 instead of a 110. The bottom end torque is night and day different and it'll pull through 5 grand easy with 3.73s and 882 heads with a basic dual plane.
