    TV2 cam

    well, ordered the TV2 cam for my 02 TA. it has been running the 224R cam for almost 2 years now. cant afford to build a 408 yet so dad is putting my old cam in his car and bought my car a newer larger cam. i have no complaints at all on the 224R it ran great with the set up i was just wanting to upgrade to a larger cam anyone know what kinda power they actually get to the wheels? i have patriot stage 2.5 heads that were port and polished again after i bought them. still running LS6 intake and a port/polished throttle body.

    I lost alot of torque down low on mine with mods in Sig! Now when I say Stage 1 LS6 heads, I am just guessing as I had a local shop do mine. They are 64CC mill with gasket matched port and polished. I am on a Frost tune and need a dyno tune ASAP! I hope to gain back some low end torque with a tune


    EDIT: Thing screams on top end

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

    That sounds about right.

    I can drive mine on the street fine, yeah, it's not stock feeling, but you'll get used to it.

    sorry forgot about my post. got the cam in and started up thursday night. thing sounds so much more like a monster now. i think the cam really works well with the heads. i always thought the other cam wasnt quiet big enough for the heads i have, and i was right. untuned and stock converter and this thing just screams. i have the pics on my phone and need to transfer them to the computer. give me some more time. i am currently intsalling my 224R cam in dads GTO.
