    Sounds like a good combo, I'd say around 410 at the wheels.

    Right on fellas!!! My tuner is damn good, but he won't predict the outcome of the mods in RWHP. Guess he doesn't want to disappoint me or himself

    so do i ...... and when i passed smog my tech said i could have gone with a bigger cam!.....

    if i had to do it again.... i might have gone a tad bigger.... maybe a
    226/226 .580/.580 112 and if it didnt pass then just do a little de-tune before smog.

    Could have gone with a 224/230 .581/.588 but wasn't sure if it would pass smog and neither was my tuner.

    hi I have basically the same cam too except I am at .561/.561 but at 114 LSA---I have Stock mildly "Cleaned up " LS6 heads---I changed only the cam (from stock 98 vette) and gained 27 RWHP on an A4--I was rather disappointed and if I had to do it over--I would go BIGGER---Chose this cam to pass the smog police in Calif--It passed fairly easy--so I am thinking something like a 228 to 229 around 113LSA if they make it woud pass smog--and maybe net me 35 to 40 RWHP instead of 27---The Head work you are having done is the unknown here--If you gain some compression you will gain some HP---unsure about angle milling results on a LS1--
