Your sig has lid, and catback, those your current mods not including the 100 shot? First get yourself some longtubes, hookers tuck up nicely, and TSP has just come out with some reasonably priced 1 7/8 LTs so check those out also. After that consider whether you want an off the shelf cam, or if you want someone to custom spec one to what you want. I can't see you going wrong with a custom spec'd cam since it done to the performance you want.

You gotta let your car inhale and exhale, i.e. intake and exhaust, before you can even consider a cam swap.
'01 Camaro has the LS6 intake manifold, so that should be okay for now, although mine is holding me back. You have a lid already, so your "inhaling" should be okay for now.
Definitely need headers, go longtube w/ Y-pipe or X-pipe or H-pipe back to your catback.
Now you can research a cam. If this is your daily driver and only car, I would suggest not going much bigger than something in the mid 220 duration and between .560 and .580 lift, this way you won't have to replace your valvetrain every x-number of miles (depending how hard you drive the car)
Along with any cam swap, you'll need supporting mods to your valvetrain.
Best thing to do is RESEARCH as much as possible. Make some phone calls and listen to advice. Don't get suckered into throwing the largest possible cam in this car if it's a DD.
