Heads and cam

If you were to change your heads and cam, who would you go with? Looking around I came across AFR [always liked their stuff] Trick flow and TSP. I will be using this on the street 90% of the time and must run on 93. BTW car is a M6 and has 1-7/8 Kooks LT , off road pipes, flowmasters and ADM CAI. Thanks for any help.

TO get your stock ones ported by AI, Brian Tooley, LPE. If money is no object I'd go with TFS or TSP smallbore heads and Lethal's enforcer cam have proven on Bplumcrazy's car!

I'd bump up compression to about 11.5 as well. It will be fine on 93.

Craig give us a call and we can discuss your specific car and goals. We've got heads cam combos from $1500 basically! Not bad for potential to make 100hp gains!!

TSP will be one of the companies I focus on when I do heads and cam.

Thanks for all the reply's. Weighing my options as of right now. Heads and Cam or Supercharger. Super charger is more $$ but easier to install and will make more power. With only 700 miles on the clock, I'm having a hard time tearing the engine apart.

From what I have read, the LS3 heads aren't all that bad. You can get more power from a cam change, over a head change.

I have cam only tsp 231/236 cam to be specific and love it. Never dyno'd but did 117 in the 1/4. So decent hp. If you do anything port the stock heads. I bepieve tsp does that as well. Great company to deal with. Got their full exhaust also. Never had a problem when ordering anything.
