Probably the stock one until you get some supporting mods to go along w/ it. Check the external engine section for lots of exhaust options.

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.

First, figure out what you want to do with your car

Then, Research

Next, decide on your supporting mods cause you will need more than just a cam. Depending on your choice of cam, valve springs, moly rods, install kit, full exhaust, possibly gears, etc, etc,

Then, Research

You will get 1,000,000,000,000 different opinion on cams, from little to big, from under the curve power, to peak number cams.

Then, Research

Next, Decide on what cam you want to get for your car.

Then, Research

Finally, take your time in deciding, there are right ups and reviews on just about every cam out there on the market. The Search button is your best friend here.....

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.

Its a Rapid Motorsports custom cam. I am unable to give out the exact specs for my cam. Maybe this thread would help you.
