We've been discussing the 2 LS#376 engine options for a while now.
That's one of the biggest reasons we all want it.

I'm kinda ignorant when it comes to whats under the hood but wouldn't a cam hurt gas mileage?

What are the benefits of installing a performance cam to my future stock engine???? I heard under adding a cam requires extra engine upgrades and can hurt performance if not done right.

Can someone answer these quick questions in Laman's terms?

Hell, yeah! Could you imagine? And a cam upgrade wouldn't be that expensive either! Heck...you could buy aftermarket, have a buddies shop put it in, void the warranty on the engine, and suffer the consequences when something goes wrong..... OR, we can do something like this! I just hope that it would be possible for us to order it like this. All from GMMP....all under warranty. Wouldn't that be sweet if you could do this and have it be a one of a kind?!?!

Probably won't help on gas mileage.
benefits? HP!!!
Adding a cam (depending on the cam and specs of the engine) might require upgraded springs, roller rockers, headers, etc, etc. This does not sound like further upgrades are necessary.
Performance being hurt? Heck no! Unless pinky the brain installs it for you.

EXACTLY. I'd go with whatever GMMP sells and raise that HP an easy 50hp for a few hundred bucks.

I want this cam, but I also want some name brands on my Camaro. I'm not talking about tearing up my motor unless GMPP will work the insides, but I do want my audio, bolt-ons, rims, and tires to come from the best out there.

So should I get a cam swap first before I modify exhaust and add forced air induction systems (superchargers) ?

Do it all as a package. All those pieces work together and it is critical to have performance matched components.

Translation: Find a good high performance shop, tell them how much power you want and they can specify a package...Cam, headers, supercharger, etc.

But, kiss your GM engine warranty bye-bye.

lol damn. Oh well. I'd rather sacrafice my Camaro for individuality than to be mundane. I'm not knocking on the purist crowd, its just personal taste. Shit, its that crowd that usually sell their Camaro's for 70-120k when they turn 50 or 60 years old.

Can you say retirement?
