Not sure if you noticed it or not but those RPM Outlet cams are DoD cams. The Cam Motion cams are appropriate if you are deleting the DoD.

I would delete the DoD and go with the LS3 Stage 2 cam not the LS2 version. The G8 GT has essentially LS3 heads and intake so the LS3 version of the Stage 2 cam is appropriate.

Nope. But to take advantage of the cam you will need a proper tune.

XFI AFM cams are very interesting. Never heard from anyone who has installed but looks good.
I like XFI AFM 270, no need for stall with Comp 270PHR15 which is 220 int and 115 LSA.
Also consider higher ratio rockers, is what all who have large base circle AFM use. Also consider 4 advance in a custom grind.
Here's a deal off the shelf:
https://www.amazon.com/COMP-Cams-656.../dp/B0066STV9Q includes cam, lifters, lube and instructions for $453.
