    114 or 112 LSA?

    I'm thinking about going with the TSP 228R cam. I know that the 114 LSA idles smoother than a 112 LSA. But, is there any difference in performance? I am going to run a 3200 stall so a rougher idle shouldn't hurt me (I think). I do love the sound of a good camming car. What would you guys do?

    I wondering the same thing. The 112 sounds better but the 114 would probably get better mileage for a dd. Im guessing the 114 would also have better bottom end torque than the 112 also.

    I have a 228R on a 113, kinda wish I had gone 112 now. With a good tune a 228 cam idles pretty well, so 112 is not that much more lope.

    The power/torque curve will be a little peakier in the RPM range than stock with either LSA.

    I have the 228R 114 LSA and we actually had a tough time tuning to get a good idle. I still wish the idle could go a little lower to sound more lopey, but where we ended up is good enough. I would say if you have a good tuner, and don't drive the car daily, shoot for the 112. Otherwise, the safer bet is 114. But that is just my experience.

    the rumor is smaller cams should be easier to tune but there are some that have had just as good driveability as any stock/smaller cam with a solid tune. in other words if you arent happy with your cars manners unless it is a giant cam like high lift high 23x/23x then the problem is more than likely your tune. or there is a small chance that the owner just cant be pleased. but i will bet that it is a tune issue.

    Not sure on an A4, but I dont think a 112 LSA should hurt anything as far as performance goes

    In an A4, most definitely use the 114LSA. The driveability will be much better and easier to tune.

    I typically use cams in the 113-114 LSA range, and they make plenty of power with great driveability.
