Best cam for stock heads

I am looking for a decent cam that does not require me to upgrade the heads. What cam will do the trick for me?

Please don't pick a cam because of the sound that it makes, thats the worse thing to do.

I agree Comps Thumper line just seems rediculous to me. I can't believe that they would have a demand for sound based cams.

When Texas-Speed was tayloring my custom L92/LS3 heads-cam kit, the LAST thing they asked me was what I wanted it to sound like...... oh wait, they NEVER asked me that either......
