Post Camshafts?

I asking opinion for my Camaro. I have a 2013 Camaro SS and it is an automatic which mean it is the L99 engine. I was wonder do they make camshafts for an L99 because everywhere I look it's always LS based shafts. It my DD car.

So what's the difference between them then, the L99 camshafts and LS3. and is the ls3 conversion kits stupid to do? I am looking at the Texas speed website and I need help what to pick I am kind of a novice at this. Can I please get some help?

L99 is an LS motor.

Take the whole car to a speed shop that specializes in LS performance builds, and gets raving support and applause from the major LS vehicle websites. There are some really good shops, and thousands of hacks.

Stress to them its a DD and stay in that stage 1 ballpark. The last thing you need in a DD is a race cam, race converter...

But save up for a complete job from opening the hood to final tuning.

If this is your daily driver I would suggest GPI's SS1 cam. You should be at about 450 RWHP and have great street manners.

If you haven’t already, you should install long tube headers and high flow cats, assuming it’s legal in your state.

I have Kooks long tube headers with high flow cats pick out. I am trying to get everything so the shop can put it all on and tune it all in one shot.
