    Max Lift for CAM

    Anyone know whats the max lift the stock springs can get for a cam?
    Its for a Ls1 04 Gto!!

    Im looking at this cam my boy is selling here are some specs!
    ---Mild 525 intake and exhaust lift with 218/228 split duration on a 112-lobe separation angle.


    I really want it, its pretty much BRAND NEW!!If you all can give me some info, I really dont want to change anything else, just the cam..No springs, lifters or anything else!!Would this be a good Idea..



    Brand : GM
    Part Num. 12480033

    Stock Springs=Stock cam only.

    Looking for a lot of trouble if you keep the stockers IMO

    joshie is right. you NEED to change your valve springs if you go any bigger than stock cam. look on ebay and get yourself a set of comp cams 918 springs should find them for around $100.
    I swaped mine out the other week and it only took about an hour and a half start to finish

    Always change your springs/retainers when upgrading a cam. Always.

    it all depends on your build. stage 1 is 1K stage 2 is 1500 stage 3 is 1800 and a stage 3+ is 2500. dont let the price scare you though. You can call around to anyone that does had P&P and see that we are way under what others charge. Its good to just do it right the first time!!!! we dont CNC the heads actually we REDO alot of CNC jobs, or should i say clean them up.

    I've got the stock 241 heads. if I pulled them off and gave them a good port job would that make a good difference? I can do my own porting and kind of enjoy it
