    The best "BIG CAM" for an LS1

    I am going to do a cam swap in my SS and wanted to get one of the biggest cams on the market. I was looking at the G5X3. The reason I like this cam soo much is the setup this guy has on his SS video:http://ls1sounds.com/true_duals/TDs-...ks_G5X3cam.MOV I plan on doing the same thing this guy has. I wanted to get your guys' opinions on which cam I should get. I will be driving this car almost daily. I figure with a good tune the car will be alright for a DD. A few companies I could think of are...G5X3, TSP Magic Stick, Thunder Racing T-Rex, other Thunder Racing Cams.

    H/C/Turbo....why?

    get a custom cam ground for the same price and have the tech guys line you up with one that will compliment your mods. kinda makes you feel different than everyone else having something no one else does.

    i'drule out a t-rex for a daily driver for one thing it has a 110LSA which will make it uncomfortable around town and two you will need to verify piston clearence when getting the cam because most likely it won't clear piston heads!

    The T-Rex will clear. I dont know how many guys have to run it on stock heads for someone to believe this...but it's true. Its close, but it works

    If you want a rowdy cam that will increase the frequency of your bowel movements, then T-Rex it.

    ps- whats a piston head? sounds like a halloween hat for somebody dressed as a connecting rod

    Is it ok if I ask about the price. About how much does it cost for cam and springs, plus a shop to put it in? That video was pretty sweet.

    I vote for Trex!
    Just take a look at the Cam Only list at LS1tech.com
    As long as you have the correct supporting mods;

    12 Bolt with 4.56 Gears for a M6( I love 4.56 on the street, best mod ever)
    LT’s with excellent flowing EX system

    huge cams w/ a 110-111 LSA are not very good as a daily driver, even w/ a bad ass tune. It can be done, but it will be annoying at times. If you have a beater car to drive on a daily basis, go for the godzilla cam (a.k.a. the t-rex killer ).

    Yeah, what is this?

    Thanks for the info guys, I finally chose to get the G5x3@112 LSA. This car sounds beautiful. I put catted pacesseters, and had an exhaust shop here in town to put me together an x-pipe, and run it out the back under the axle...

    BTW, I decided to go with those 12'' Glasspacks!


    Cam, install, exhaust and everything cost me $4,250. Which isn't bad considering all the custom work done.

    That sounds expensive. Who did the work?(tune, install) I'm right up the road from you in Stokesdale also. Are you a member of any of the local clubs(Triadfbody, carolina rides)?
