    Are you planning on running any other power mods in the future? You will want to make sure you choose a cam that will complement them if so. For example, if you were to get a blower, the LSA would be very important on the cam grind. If you are wanting to just gt some extra HP, I wouldn't suggest a 6.0L cam, go with something bigger with 208/212 being the minimum.
