Import Performance Parts (IPP): http://www.importperformanceparts.net/imports/ippwebcam-cavalier2.html has what they say are billet forgings, but they are actually cast steel, but that is good enough for these applications. A couple of people on J-Body.org have reported that they are decent.

I prefer to design my own from a manufacturers master lobe profiles. I've gotten very good reports from those who have used my profiles. Regrinds are the least expensive ($150 typically + S&H), but require either a usable cam core or having you truck/car down while the cam is out getting reground (usually about a week). Regrinds are also limited on the amount of lift and moving of the lobe centers, but I can still get some really good cams from a regrind.

Crane did the regrind five years ago,that I'm running now. It's a single pattern design on stock lobe centers. On my N/A motor it's better than the stock cam, but kind of flat compared to my designs. It has a moderate lope to it, but the PCM isn't tuned. They should have tightened up the lobe centers for a better performing cam. The stock L/Cs are so wide it's killing the response on a N/A motor. It would work great in a turbo motor though.

I have another regrind that was done through Jones Cam Design, it's a radical grind that requires aftermarket valve springs and tuning. I need to do it soon, my timing chain doesn't have much longer before it lets go. Maybe between Christmas and New Years, I've got a week off then. I will also be putting on my new head with the L92 valve springs, +1mm valves, surfaced .035" and my own P&P job. I will have to make arrangements with my buddy up in Jax to come down and tune the motor. This motor will definitely have a lope to it.

I would recommend just doing couple basic external bolt on before going with Cam.

However, if you want to get serious about getting 2.2 moving quick, look into doing boost and that will set you apart from others. :cool:
