    Don't blame you on going with the dual springs.
    I did as well when I had a .575" lift cam. Just insurance.

    The Comp 918's are great springs, aside from that crap batch that made it onto cars.

    Right I had not realized that Patriot made the exact cam that I was thinking about, just need to make sure I like their lobe design (wanting XE-R). BTW Griller really liked getting to see your videos, gives me good hopes for a small cam

    I have also been talking some with A guy from another shop that has suggested a 224-228 .581-.588 on a 112 any thoughts about that one compared to the 226 ?

    From what ive talked to Gunnar at Patriot my understanding is that its ground on XER lobes...Its a Fairly similar cam anything that close wont make a big enoug difference in performance unless ur adding say nitrous....If i remember correctly a durration split and lift in that 224-228 cam would favor the use of spray more so than the 226 yet i dont think the change is drastic enough to make a person regret either cam.....

    here is a link of a memeber on here...its a 226 cam but with 595 lift....

    I really like Patriot, but I wouldn't run one of their cams.
    The LSx shops tend to have better 'off the shelf' grinds.

    Custom for your set-up will always be best. I plan on doing a custom bumpstick in mine next winter. Up it a little. Maybe go 254/258 630/640 111.

    No doubt that custom will optimize performance but he is trying to custom grind a cam that already exists.

    Ahhh.

    Haven't researched it that much lately. I know several places that can do it. TSP maybe, along with a set of custom length pushrods. I need 7.318" pushrods, running 7.325" right now.

    Made quite a few phone calls to various shops about cams today, swear I just keep coming back with more options. Think I might have it narrowed down to

    225/229 .585/.590 114 lsa (patriot)
    224/228 .581/.588 112 lsa

    and still my
    226/226 .585/.585 112 lsa

    comp cams... if you call them they will be cheapest custom grind... anywhere else pretty much uses a comp cam grind so you can eliminate the middle man and order through comp... if you order tsp... they are calling comp and saying we need a 22x/22x they send it to them for x amount of dollars... they jack up price... send to you... end rant

    I do believe a custom grind is same price as off the shelf.

    yeah it is... but if you order custom through a company they will probably charge extra... off the shelf is what they can offer same price.... but if he wants custom grind you go through comp rather than through another company

    Really seems to be six and half a dozen, custom grinds cost as much as their off the shelf cams. Just a matter of how much they mark them all up. Sure some of these places get their cams though for a cheap enough rate to cost almost the same as getting one from Comp.
