I think Crower seems to be the most popular brand. People will argue between the 62403 vs 62404.

What kind of power are you looking for? Do you have some set HP goal, or E.T? Camshafts will give you a slight increase in power, depending on their design, but to fully get their real power you new cam gears, and head porting, maybe some valvetrain components as well, depending on the apps. Turbo cams vary from all-motor cams as well, I have friends with Skunk2 cams and they swear buy them and I have a friend with JUN IIIs and that thing is unbelievable.

Do you expect this engine to be streetable? You are really pushing it for 220- 240 whp! I would say 200-210 at the most... and this is with a b20 bottom end/ crazy compression/ biggest cams possible/ excellent portwork/ and a standalone fuel management system.

I would say the best cams for an LS motor are Crowers. If you are looking to get the most power out of your engine get the Crower 405's. These are not the 405a's these are the 405's with .502 lift. You will need to get your head machined to allow cam clearance.

Crower or Crane, i say make the best cams for ls motors. They are made from billit cores, not regrinds.

404's are the usual but all motor LS making that type of power you'd better upgrade.

I had the Crower 403's with the duel valve springs before on my first LS motor and it ran good.

The idle on it was a little ruff but it ran good. Back when we had emissions I never passed so depends on your needs.

I tried it for turbo and it did not work for me plus Crower said that it have too much overlap for FI. (just letting you know)

topped out my car at 134mph at 7200rpm with it.

i had 403's when i had an ls. I ran it with my stock valvetrain and it was great. It would idle like stock also. But eventually got bored of and would have went with 404's. If you plan on getting springs and retainers, i'd say 404's all the way.

The most commen cams I have seen used in b18b1's are the crower 403's or cranes that are close to the duration and lift as the 403's
