I predict you will be very happy with the combo. Looks great man. I've had that cam before on a LQ9 , L92 headed 6.0 and it pulled great and even got decent mileage. I see a extra regulator. Hmmm! what could that be for? Also good luck with fitting it under the 2" cowl with a decent filter assembly.

The intakes for these engines are tall. Go big... If you think a 2" will clear it... put a 3" on there, its better than dealing with stuff not fitting or having to put a tiny f'n filter on there. Also you will have a little extra room for experimenting with spacers or maybe NOS if you want.
