Generation IV Internal Engine - Heads and cam dilemna
06-19-2007, 02:52 PM
ok ok, so i have a 1999 Camaro Z28, its currently getting a Centerforce Dual Friction Clutch, and a Ram Lightened Flywheel, it already has headers (Pacesetter LTs), catback (SLP Loudmouth II), SLP intake Lid, SLP cold air kit, and a Short throw. I am in the process of ordering a set of Torque Thrusts IIs with 315s on back, i am currently riding on some Y2k corvette wheels with 275s in back. I am runnign 13.0s with 2.29 60 foots @ 109 mph. I plan on boosting it sometime in the future, turbos, two of em. MY question to you guys is reccomendations on heads and cam. and do you think i would need to go ahead adn purchase a new intake manifold, like a 90 mm with TB? I know that the centerforce clutch should hold 550 crank horses so i think it should be ok....for now. so anyways, suggestions? :drive:

What are your goals for this car? and you posted in the wrong internal section, the ls1 internal section might help more

You need to identify a few things here first
1) BUDGET, this will decide everything
2) Ultimate power/ET goals
3) Usage. Weekend street toy?, Daily Driver?, Track toy??
Every decision you make on the above will/can change what you do with the car.
You need to make the decision first about boosting the car. This will determine how you build it. Boost requires low compression to see the best out of it. Good power NA means high compression.

I'd buy the best heads you can afford, then go look in the dyno section to see what cams run well with them.
