Should run great in your truck. Run the yellow ('02) LS6 springs, they'll be fine on that lift.

wow thats really no lift at all. More lift on these motors is like free HP. but that low of lift will be really easy on your valvetrain because you will have low ramp rates. Should make good power in that 6.0

Its what was available on a budget (used cam). I don't think its bad at all.

People get to caught up in lift numbers. I had one idiot believe since he was getting a cam with .680 lift he would see a minimum of 500 rwhp because its what he read online :pow:

edit: the cam was a 224/224 on XER lobes and custom ground to his specs.

:shake: Agreed, but more lift is supposedly like free HP for these LSx motors. Glad he found a good deal. Some of the ones I pointed out to him looked good.

Nope. He's on 4.10's and 35's. He runs a superchips programmer and it's almost all highway. That's probably why.

Yes the lift is low, but the gains aren't huge in terms of CFM from 0.500 -> 0.550 -> 0.600 so I don't think there is too much being given up.
