    is 375 rwhp possible with this setup??

    i currently have 325 rwhp with slp lid, bellows, LM II catbackm, and dyno tune. I just got my pacesetter ceramics and ory pipe. Also going to install the ls1 hotcam kit. so do you think this will put me around 375 to the wheels. Also going to port and polish my tb soon, and get a ls6 intake, and asp pulley. where do you think all of this will put me??? maybe 390????

    awesome, i just want the reliability of the hotcam. im pretty sure thats what im gonna get but might change my mind to a 224r or 228r cam i dont know. i just want reliability with stoplight to stoplight power

    if you have a six speed car, get the 228/228 cam.
    if you have an auto get the 224/224 cam.
    both make great power.
    also if youre an auto, get a stall converter in the 3500 rpm range.
    as for 390 rwhp with all the bolt ons and hotcam, dont count on it.
    btw, i have a 224/224 581/581 114 lsa cam and its totally reliable.

    I used the Comp 275, and it netted me what you see below. It idles good, and the gas mileage difference is unnoticeable.

    Check out this cam comparo...

    I don't think you will make 375 at the wheels with the Hotcam. If you want to make real power, I suggest you put an FM13 cam in there. I prolly would have netted 10 or more rwhp if I would have slapped that baby in there. From previous small block experience, I thought the 275 was a HUGE cam, maybe too big, but the LS1 is a completely different engine than its siblings. I think it could have taken that FM13 and kept on smiling.

    Bottom line, I like the cam I chose, and I can't justify going bigger, especially since it was an all-around good choice. (low-end torque, driveability, idle, top-end power)
