New LS1 Owners - Newbie Tech - Ls6 camshaft

I have a 2000 ss and I have a 04 ls6 cam for it going in soon. I'm changing the springs to ls6 yellows. Do i need to change the pushrods? I'm running the ls1 heads.

if its a m6 I would.I would recommend a better cam then that.tr224,tsp 224r will make more power then a ls6 cam.

i had an 02 ls6 cam and i ran stock PRs without a problem.

You shouldnt need to change the pr's. Your also not going to see much of a gain out of the ls6 cam. Your better off getting something bigger than that, trust me you will be dissapointed with the results if you put that cam in there.

Stock pushrods are o.k., hardened would be better of course.
That cam is pretty mild. Expect minor, but noticeable gains.

i liked mine but its gains werent great for what it cost. i still ended up needing a tune.
unless want you something extremely streetable id get something more aggressive. i have heard theyre good for FI applications for some reason.
when i put it up for sale here it was gone quickly and i was getting PMs about it weeks later.
No point in getting a ls6 cam. Get a aftermarket cam and do it right if you expect to see a gain more then 10hp.

if you are getting that cam because you are worried about smog you can get a 224/224 114 LSA and still pas smog, my friend did that here in CA and passed just fine.
that cam wont make that much more HP, IMO not worth the time to install.
