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.2000 WS6 TA #2946 - A4, Best 1/4: 12.5s @111mph.

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.
