    Couldn't find a lumpier cam? Something that sounded a little throaty? Lol

    Nice. Very nice.

    Stock cam. That's all that will work with these flat top pistons and 58cc trick flow heads

    Nope. Had a trick flow cam and tried it. Way too close to risk. These heads come with a tag warning that you have to have aftermarket pistons. These aren't the usual 70cc combustion chamber ones you usually see.

    Just to up date this. I tore the engine out and sold all the parts and dropped a 2005 6.0L LSX into it. Team Z K member and coil over kit. Maximum motorsport Tbird caster camber plates, and more.

    Which LSX did you put in it. I deal with the L96 at work a lot, and we have been starting to have issues with the cam phasers on them.
    It's Gumby's fault.

    Have you considered an LS3 head/intake combo?
