    Which cam to use?

    I've been thinking about installing a cam in my car. Has anyone installed a cam with a supercharger and if so, which one and what were your gains? My only consideration is emissions, Delaware is a real pain about inspections. Here is a list of upgrades so far.

    ATI Procharger w/ 8 psi pully
    SLP Longtubes w/ cats and Y
    Corsa Catback
    McCloud clutch
    SLP Subs
    BMR Strut tower brace

    I have a Lingenfelter GT2-3 for sale ($300 shipped) with 1000 miles on it. It is a good mild cam that works well with superchargers. 207/220 .574/.580 117.5 lsa.
    You should see a 20-25 rwhp gain.

    Save yourself a fortune and install a smaller blower pulley.

    You don't want to go much higher on boost if you have a stock block. Unless your ready for a rebuild. A cam will drop your boost down slightly. Might lose a lb. Then you pulley down to get it back. Fun shit!!!

    Exactly! The only problem is finding a cam to do what I want without blowing my emissions all to shit.

    I am planing on the Gt2-3 as well. Great blower cam, almost near stock idle. Should work fine for passing emissions.

    I've started having doubts about the GT 2-3 cam. After talking with some people who use superchargers I would only see about a 20 hp increase. I'm going to do a little more research on this before I make up my mind.
