    Cam advise for mild boost(5.5lbs) LS1

    Anybody have any advise as for a good street cam for an LS1 with full bolt-ons and a small supercharger? Im making 420 at the wheels now,but would like to get another 50 or so with a cam change,right now my engine is 100% all original internals. Thanks for any ideas!!

    Why not just keep the stock cam and change the pulley size? Is the SC not capable of generating more boost?
    It's on jackstands.

    Well,its a reworked PowerDyne supercharger,and 5.5lbs is about all she is good for. Thats why I'm looking at other options,and a cam seemed like the obvious choice since I still run the stock cam

    for the most part, so ass long as you dont get too crazy with the cam size, most N/A cams show their power advantage in both N/A and Boost form. granted thats a blanket statment, but in gerneral, as long as you keep you cam size mild, usually under 230 you engine will respond positivly. ask around sponsors and whatnot to get a clearer picture but a few guys that have had a TSP 228 cam put boost on them and said they REALLY like it. for off the shelf, 220-228 cams do very well in mild appications. i myslef am looking for a 224 or a 228 cam for myself and my turbo build. since you are supercharged, you would do better with a traditional split cam. TSP says that their 224/228 cams do great on boost specifically with SC. hope ive helpped alittle lol

    I agree with what this guy said for the most part, I'll just add to it. Great read, Guy.

    The LS6 cam is fine for boost, but in no way is it optimum. There's no reason for us who don't know the cam profiles to even give suggestions unless its from direct experience, talk with Lil jon on Tech or the Bullet(not rapper lol), Pat G, EPS, Futural, Tick etc. (Google their names). Those guys will tailor it towards your setup.

    Have fun.
