    231/235 cam in L76/L98

    Hi guys.

    Looking to put a cam in my L76 Holden Calais (Australian)
    Its a 6.0L motor, basically the same as a L98.

    Just wondering if anyone here has done something similar, and any information on how it went... problems power etc etc.

    Ive been told that it will fit without flycut pistons (this better be true)

    ATM plans are to do "DOD Delete" and Cam install.
    Current supporting mods are 1 3/4 headers and a dual 3inch exhaust. Plus a CAI-OTR. And 3.73 diff gears.

    The gearbox (4l65e) is currently broken/slipping/etc.. but will be being built. Did have a 4500 stally. But might change the stall speed depending on powerband of cam.
    Also considering a 4l80e... but this might be overkill.

    In the future i might get the heads done.. but in terms of power im pretty sure i wont be going any future.

    Cam specs as follows >>

    *also please, if you have anything similar to this cam.. dont be afraid to add a video of it. Love cammed goodness throbbing!!

    Duration plays more of a roll then lift when determining flycutting. I don't have personal experience with that camshaft but looking at the numbers, I don't think you will have a problem. Before firing it up, you should hand crank it over (Use a socket on the crank pulley bolt) and you will know if the valves will hit the pistons.

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

    Also for your transmission, Google ( monster in a box transmissions) it will give you all the good stronger parts for around $800, plus get the Raptor input kit for around $450.... this will give you a VERY strong transmission
