Default L92 parts where to look?

Ok might be a dumb question but yes I have done my research and have few questions still. I'm gonna use a L92 engine out of an 07 escalade in my conversion with either the L76 intake or LS3. Now my question is what do I use for a search for parts like cams, valvetrain and stuff to yield better results. Obviously if you search for cadillac escalade it don't pull up much or is outrageous cause it's cadillac. Would I use like yukon, silverados or a type of car to yield better results?

I read that article. I wanna do a cam, and all the valvetrain components for the heads. I'm buying a pair of bare L92 heads. I would like to get about 500-520rwhp which I feel can be done easily. But I wanna keep the vvt. But like when i search for parts I type in the vehicle which is a 07 escalade but not much comes up. I'm wondering if I use like 07 yukon or silverado would it pull up more thats what i'm asking. I wanna get alot of options for cam's

There are not many options on cams. The L92 is designed with only .080" piston to valve clearance on both the intake and the exhaust valves.

IF you swap pistons, it would open up an entire new world of camshaft possibilities. But until then your extremely limited.

Other than the camshaft, basically any performance part that works on LS1/2/3s etc will work on your L92.

If you don't use the VVT you have a much larger choice of cams, The comp performance cam VVT set up seems like the way to go if you retain the VVT, If you don't use VVT or the AFM you can cam it like an LS3. The VVT is nice to have, you just have to keep the PCM from the Escalade.

Yeah i'm going to use the harness and pcm from the esclade. If I have to i'll swap pistons or have them fly cut so I have more options. I'm not going to use the AFM though heard you can't use any type of cam with that.
-So as far as the heads go I can use any LS component on the L92 heads?
-And who makes/sells vvt cams that I can check out?
I don't plan on changin much on the block, probably pistons thats about it, the rest should handle easy 550hp from what i've read.

l92 heads need offset rockers for the intake valves.
