Looking For Camshaft for 9th Gen!!

Hey, whats up guys. I'm really looking to make the 9th gen impala what it should be but I need help. The video is of my Impala 3.5 V6 and I am really looking for some performance parts. Watch the video and let me know what you think. Let's have a discussion https://youtu.be/t22owfm2nG4

Didn't watch the vid no time.

My understanding is the 3.5L is a Gen 8.

I don't think for the cost of a cam, hassle and cost of installation, then tuning that new combo is going to be money well spent on a 3.5L.

Camming a 3.6L, 8th or 9th, requires a tune, and I've only ever seen small tuner shops doing this, and not off the shelf grinds and tunes offered as a package for mail order.

Buy '13 and up (3.6L) Gen 8, get a tune, and save yourself a lot of disappointment.

There not much out there as far as any performance parts. Besides the exhaust upgrade there is a throttle body kit, the JacFab Intake spacer, a build your own simple intake and a tune. That's about it.
