Default 2017 Camaro SS cam upgrade questions

Looking to install a BTR stage 2 camshaft in my 2017 Camaro SS 1LE. I know I will need to install lifters, pushrods, valve springs, and cam limiter. I can get the pushrods and springs in the cam kit from BTR, but I was wondering what lifters everyone is using. I heard LS7 lifters are good but not the best. Anyone have their two cents on this?

Johnson 2110. And get the 0 degree lockout not just the limiter.

I would not go with a btr stage 2 . If you are looking for the best performance camshaft i would look into GPI or Pray performance they have ran 9s with a cam/heads setup and low 10s is the norm for them with just cam and supporting mods
