Proper install order

Finally gonna mod my Camaro. I have long tubes in the mail, cai intake in the garage. My question is what to do next. Iím pretty much set on a cam swap and a Whipple 2.9l. I can do one now and the other in the spring. I was thinking of doing the cam now this fall and take the winter months to install the Whipple. Iíll need to do 2 tunes at that point. Should I do the Whipple now with their canned tubes and drop the car off in the spring for a cam and full dyno tune? Money wise it hurts less to do the cam now and Whipple later.

I'd say ask the guys at GPI to custom grind you a cam specifically for your blower based on your preference/power/drivability goals. Theres always TSP, Janetty to look into as just want the right cam for FI so you can get the most out of it

Your cam should complement the FI for one, and you need desperately more than N/A the other supporting upgrades such as a high volume pump, trunnions, dog bone damper, chain upgrades to insure your slapping this large blower on a stock block with stock hypereutectic pistons lasts not turned up...……. your stock pistons rings are not meant for boost or the slugs so good luck there and remember to upgrade the catch can system with valves also. Not that others have not done it, but there is always the ls9 head gaskets, new lifter baskets, new TTY bolts required along with new lifters and pushrods. Then there is proper maintenance over time, and me I use br30 for a break in and ls30 driven racing oil to drive.

Why not just wait and buy it all at once and save on labor time having to take the engine apart twice and tune twice?
