Default Is this a good cam for a DD?

My friend owns a performance shop and he works mostly on vettes. I asked him to spec out a cam for my C6 Z06 that will produce good power along the other mods he's doing, but still drive like stock. This is what he came up with. I was hoping for a lower LSA so it will sound very lobey at idle, but he said they can tune it to sound lobier. Anyways, what do you think?

231/246 .653/.652 115LSA +3 advance (with 1.8 ratio rockers)
Comp LSL/LXL lobes 54-000-11 3 bolt cam core
Cam Valve Events 0.006 0.050 0.200
Intake Duration ID 281 231 154 13018R LSL lobe .653"
Exhaust Duration ED 298 246 166 13163R LXL lobe .652"
Lobe Center Angle LSA 115 115 115
Intake Centerline ICL 112 112 112

Intake Valve opens IVO 28.5 3.5 -35 BTDC (- indicates ATDC)
Intake Valve closes IVC 72.5 47.5 9 ABDC
Exhaust Valve Opens EVO 87 61 21 BBDC
Exhaust Valve Closes EVC 31 5 -35 ATDC (- indicates BTDC)
Exhaust Centerline ECL 118 118 118
Overlap 59.5 8.5 -70 degrees

I have a 227/243 LSR in my 438 and it drives better than stock. I can run in 6th at 40mph and 5th around 35mph in town no issue. It pulls from a stop in 3rd at 800rpm.

I would run the 231/247 comp if I ever needed a rebuild. The LSA is ok IMO. Tighter will lope more, but the extra durations will do that anyway. It looks good to me

With a good tune I recon it will be "close" to stock.
Go for it

Don't know if you know who Patrick G is, but he's the one doing the tune.

pat G is fantastic. Just know with thatcam you are gonna be replacing springs fairly often and you will need to keep a close eye on that. It should be a good cam, but I think there are some better choices out there. Pat G can also spec you out a custom cam as well, might be worth it especially if hes the one doing the tuning.
