Hey guys. I have a bone stock 2002 6.0 from a 2500hd. I'm going to put it into my s10. It's a 1995 regular cab short box 2wd. Turbo 350 trans. I have 2 rear ends for it. A 373 and a 4.10. My question is what is the best cam I can swap into it? It's going to be a carbed motor. My plan is a daily driver but it will also be a weekend track truck. Thanks any help will help a ton. I'm new to these engines.

I'm using an LQ9 in one of my Malibus...very similar to your LQ4. Just a bit more compression. I researched quite a bit on cams and I chose the GM hot cam for LS engines. Comes with 16 LS6 springs and with mild head work, I followed a "recipe" from either Popular Hot Rodding or Car Craft, but using identical parts, their motor made 525 hp. That's enough for me! By the way, I'm selling a brand new Edelbrock carbureted intake and MSD ignition controler you could use for the engine, too...check my posts if you're interested. Good luck with your build
