    Going built

    Im picking up a complete LS1 engine on tuesday and plan on stripping it down and using just the block to build a 383 stroker. Its gonna use a Callies Compstar rotating assembly, PRC stage 2.5 5.3 heads, FAST intake. And I wanna be able to add nitrous eventually. The car is not a dd and is only streeted once or twice a month. I want to have a very nasty street car that can more than hold its own on a dragstrip which is primarly where it will be used. I need help choosing a cam though. It needs to be a good N/A cam for street use but respond very well to nitrous. I may stick with stock displacement though, havent quite decided on that yet. When nitrous down go on it will most likely be a direct port system around a 200-250 shot. My converter will be set up once i have a final build plan. Any opinions are greatly welcomed

    ms3 and ms4 cams are good, I suggest calling TSP ( Texas Speed and Performance) and telling them your plans and they can give you direction and more often than not all the parts you need.

    had looked at the MS4 and VRX7. The VRX is less lift but more duration and they claim its a great nitrous cam.
