    Depends on if we are talking about peak or across the board.

    The cams you listed are peak cams.

    TSP's Torquer2 is a good one.
    232/234 .595/.598 with your choice of LSA.


    Thinking about it, your set-up would benefit MOST from a custom grind.

    Call Thunder Racing.

    You will have a conversation about what the goals of the car are...and they will spec you a cam.

    Not really a fair comparison.
    Each and every car is different.

    Also had my car (with nothing changed) vary on a dyno by 15RWHP. Pulls were 5 hours apart. Made sure the coolant temp was the same.


    If you need the biggest and baddest cam with your nitrous...it will be custom.

    Very true!

    How much did the trap speeds vary?

    Look at the G5X4 also. My friend runs 11.2-11.3s at 122mph all day with it cam only. It's a beast.
