You should look for some vids of the magic stick at idle and on cold starts...It's not usually a cam people choose for something they drive every day. That cam will have a rough idle, hurt your MPG, and your car will be close to 500 whp...that's a pretty hardcore cam from what I understand...however if TSP knows you will be driving this thing every day and that's what they recommend, more power to them, and you.

    To clarify, it's not that you CAN'T drive a magic stick every day...but from the way you are writing it seems like that cam would be too much for you and you wouldn't like the driveability. Just trying to help
    That is a hardcore cam. I wouldn't recommend it for everyday use either. But if they do, then more power to them, literally.

    i love what i see as far as the idle, but i've never actually driven a camed car. Also, since i have automatic transmission, i can't imagine how the drive would be that much different... maybe you guys could offer some of your experiences?

    this is what a pull looks like and a faster than normal pick up with a 4k stall..
