Guidance or a Push in the right direction...

I'm running a JLT, Ceramic LT's, 4.10's, Underdrive Pulleys, a Hurst shifter, O/R X w/ magnaflows, BMR LCAs, SCT Custom Tune, and I have a one piece drive shaft going in Friday. I want a cam, but no idea which way to go, they all sound great, but I am looking for a good blend of power and sound. My shop thinks the mutha thumpr stage 2 will break the 400hp mark when I go w/ cmcv delete, but I'm also considering the new C&L manifold. I want to stay N/A.

My questions are: Anyone know the cam for us with that perfect blend? Is the C&L manifold worth it? What will get me into the 11's?

I run mid 12's with drag radials.
PLease Help and thanx!

You want to stay NA, Well are you absolutely sure about that? If so I would go with the stage 2 VSR Comp cams. You would get more by porting and polishing. Yet the cams alone would be a nice gain.

I'm guessing you mean 400 to the crank?

I agree about the porting and polishing. I would do both that and cam while you have the heads out. I wouldnt consider the intake unless you were f/I. for the money its not worth it put it towards the cams. Plus you have 4:10's so you can get an even meaner cam.

yes sir, if I ever go FI, it will be a procharger. I just know that I need to have that engine bullet proof before i go with a lot of boost. the reason I would stay N/A is because I want to keep her a very long time.

I just don't know where to go with it, hence the need for guidance.
