Cam

What size camshaft is the best that won’t make my car die at a stop light but will add a decent amount of power?

Automatic? (L99) or
6 speed manual? (LS3)............ Either way, a new cam should be tuned anyway.......... PLUS replacement of the valve springs. any cam replacement should also include new valve springs. regardless of cam size. Even if replacing with a factory cam...... new springs. All factory engines are tuned with a balance of performance and fuel mileage. All factory engines can give a performance increase with just a tune.
