    Looking for a good cam

    first got a 2013 single cab Silverado 5.3, cat back and CAI with a custom tune best time 14.4, been looking for a cam...basically something I that will give me good power and driveable with some chop. more of a street/strip cam so far got a standard valley plate and non-dod lifters, going to get rid of the AFM so any help thanks

    Something like a 222 duration.

    man that's good time for the modds, I would get headers before the cam, because your motor won't be able to push out that extra air as well on the stock manifolds

    What gears are you running? I agree with canada4g63, I'd get some long tube headers as my next mod.
    * 2004 Chevrolet CCSB Z-71 5.3L * G80, 3.73's * Black Bear Autocal 91 oct tune * Magnaflow 3" SI/SO 14" case * Airaid M.I.T. * OEM airbox with open air modification * Color matched grille & lower valence * Blackened Tail Lights * SuperBright LEDs in brake lights & reverse lights *

    In the garage to be installed: 799 heads, Dyna-Tech long tube headers, Corvette servo, 2" lowering shackles, 2wd u-bolts & bumpstops

    It's usually awesome to have LTs with any cam however I have seen plenty of guys pick up over 50rwhp from a cam with stock manifolds.

    there are quite a few guys running 220/220 cams in the older 5.3s making good power and they sound awesome but that maybe a little wilder than what you want, i know the stock ls6 cam pushrods and valve springs will fit a 5.3 and are making good power and the price on them isnt that bad either

    there is a wild 220r cam? there days small cams are killing that cam and huge cams are making better power than ever... that cam honestly is so like 6 yrs ago. custom grind all the way... itll be built for your truck and how you want it to perform!
