Default Best cam for basically stock application

Car is an SN95 with lm7/4l60e.
It's an 01 lm7, with LS6 intake and BBK long tube headers.
No ac/ps/heat
Blowermotor removed.

It will keep the stock heads for now, but I will be putting a 100-125 shot on it. So I would like a cam that is nitrous friendly. But I would also like some "bang for the buck". So I was looking at getting the ls6 cam/springs for now. This coming Winter I may go more radical, so I don't necessary want to drop the money on an MS3 kit, especially with stock heads.

Thoughts?

Good all around affordable cam would be one of the torquer cams from TSP.
