    Need ideas for Cam on my set-up

    Ok guys heres the situation...I'm in need of some specs on a good cam for my setup. I want a cam that has good low-mid range power b/c the cam I have in it right now(C1 hammerCam) has no low end power. Some people have mentioned the LPE GT2-3 cam but I'm wandering if a custom grind cam would be the better way to go. I would like a cam that isnt very loud but loud enough to know its there. I'm planning on running around 10 lbs of boost after the heads/cam are installed. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
    I'm planning on running the Patriot Stage 2 LQ9 heads with the cam. These heads and cam will be run on a forged 347 if that helps any.

    thanks for the help guys,
    chris

    If you want something that lopes, take the GT2-3 out of the hunt. Its as stock as stock can be at idle. But it is a good cam if you're running boost.

    I'd go custom as that will tailor exactly with the mods you plan on running.

    We did a 226 220 .570 .564 on a 115 and midrange was great. It was on a car running 7.5psi.
    There wasnt much lope at all though

    ok cool....
    I had a D1SC on my car before my new turbo setup.
    I have always loved a 224/230 on a 114LSA .570/.580 lift.
    now i ran a 230/236 on a 114+4 .592/.602 with no problem with an A4.
    You can hear the lope better with my cam then the one i said.... but the 224/230 will still sound about like you want.
    I know Futral Makes one... the F7 if i rememebr correctly.

    Will the F7 make good low-end power??? Well, I'm going to call cam-motion/futural today and get a custom-grind or the F7 perhaps...thanks for the help guys...
