I have Money......

you can look at my sig to see the mods i all ready have. i GOING to get LT's and a tune from Tri Star i guess that will cost me 2 grand installed?. i all so want a small cam that will give me same mpg and about a 30 rwhp gain. not looking for a heavy cam something light. what cam will i need? to net me 30-50 extra rwhp ontop of the LT"S and tune with my other stuff? trying to get to 400rwhp with this set up. not looking at support mods for the cam. plan on getting her stroked in the future. give me some advice. iam i going in the right direction?

05 is the man to ask! I wouldn't have made it through my cam debacle without his help. I would still upgrade your valve springs and pushrods nomatter what cam you install.
Your mpg is dependent mainly on your tune. I thought for sure i'd lose mpg's after my cam install, but it actually went up from 20 mpg to 21 mpg after the tune. My guess is the re-tuned PCM is running the motor more efficiently than the stock tune with stock cam did.
