    That's a big cam. I'd look at anyone running an MS4 or TRex cam if you want to compare numbers.

    That's a pretty stout cam! Are you looking to install the block in a car for the street or the track?

    At the end of the day, your tune will determine whether or not that bad boy has decent street manners.

    if you want the most out of that cam you would really need a bigger stall as well. Your power band is going to start quite a bit higher than 3500 my freind.

    that cam is too big for you application of spray, and street manners.

    remember parts compliment each other, you want the right cam duration for spray, and the right cam to match your stall.

    assuming this is just a bare block
    If you want to keep this cam, and short block. Build up the short block, l92 heads, l76 intake (for budget build), set the stroke and piston size to be a 400+ block....

    you will have some screaming power!


    I run a 231/237 cam in my camaro, its not a daily driver and I would not want it to be.

    Not the best cam for spray.

    Street manners would probably be pretty rough with an A4 with that cam.
    You said shortblock, but didn't mention cubes? 346?

    I'm running a TR TRak cam with specs close to a MS3 and 3500 stall and it's still not very streetable. I'd seriously suggest a cam with a 22x/22x and 112 lsa if your gonna want streetability and good for nitrous. Especially, a 150 shot. If you want streetability with power, you'll have to move up to bigger cubic inches.
