TVS built 1LE...give me your cam recommendations

This is my daily driver and I'd love to hear your cam recommendations and why.

I want to maintain as much driveability as possible but have a cam worth spending the money (parts/labor and retune) for the results.

disclaimer: I KNOW there are threads out there but I want suggestions specific to my car/build if you could please.

Short version of current mods are:
TVS with upgraded FIC 850 injectors
LT headers
intake
NPP exhaust

*considering a specific meth kit as well but that's another thread LOL

Any info/links anyone would recommend and why would be greatly appreciated!

Current dyno tune below(not that it matter much)

Gt9 cam would work well with your car and maintain great manners.

I would guess about no more than 10 degree overlap and higher lsa (117 or so) so the car can have a good rumble with great drivability. Your supercharger and the 3.91 gear helps alot with the low end of the powerband in like 5th and 6th

we have some nice cam grinds for you... a cam like in Kronix camaro would be perfect. its right at -2 degrees of overlap, therefore it has a nice soft lope, but driveability is unchanged from the stock cam... this cam has made 650rwhp multiple times, with magnuson superchargers

do you think the engine might blow up by adding a cam with a supercharger? The LS-3 does not have forged internals like the lsa motor. Just my two cents.

an ex-ford guy? I used to worry about motors popping right after I converted from Ford. LS engines are indestructible!!!

seriously have Pat G spec out a Cam for you. He is known as the Camshaft guru on LS1tech.

No one comes close to Lethal and the Night Fury for N/A or boosted applications.

750 all day long on a Lethal Stage V setup

And the stock internals are fine even up to 800ish hp if tuned right.
many many high HP boost cars running around at those numbers on stock bottom ends.

I have a tuner and a shop to do it..... I want hardened rods as well as part of or seperate from a "kit". My tuner said off cuff that a cam might cost $200-300 for install plus $100 tuning. That was just a cam. If I threw rods in there of course it would go up I'm up for info if you have some :P
