I passed on those heads a long time ago. Intake ports are way too big for the flow they produce.

For a NA LS3, any decent ported or aftermarket head with a 260cc intake port is enough.

My daily drive Impala SS with LS3 has the Lingenfelter GT1-1 cam;
229*/242*, 114* + 0*.

That Summit cam has about 3* more overlap. Still....a good tuner should be able to control that cam.

Agreed.

Going through the time, effort, money to install a supercharger, you might as well put a proper cam in it too.

Best of luck! ;)

With a 12:1cr stroker, you're playing children's games with that tiny cam.

I would agree with this point.

Save your bucks and go SC first. The stock cam is actually VERY FI friendly and you keep your stock drivability.

If you feel you MUST get a cam, then get a FI...
