Default just got cam should i do headers first?

I just got my 222/226 112lsa comp cam from tntz(great seller). I have the stock headers and y pipe right now. I have the money to buy the rest of the stuff for the cam install or a set of pacesetter headers. I can only afford to do one right now and the other would have to come a few months later. What should I do? Will the gains from the cam be minimilized by the restrictive exhaust? Thanks for all the help.

You should defiantly go ahead and do the headers...you will prob not see much of a gain if you dont do headers first maybe 10-15RWHP...the LT's will compliment all other mods and are a key to preformance with a large cam. Good Luck

yes, get the headers first. then install the cam when you have enough money to do it right.

just to let you know, a guy installed a tr224 like a week ago on stock heads, manifolds, and ls1 intake and only put down 322rwhp. what does that tell you

headers first, then follow it up with the cam. Alot of people can tell you how incredibly disappointing their dyno numbers were when doing H/C or just even a cam on stock manifolds
