    Best Components for Sustained RPM? Drift/Road Race

    I have been Drifting and Road racing localy with my 400whp Skyline powered Nissan 240sx, well recently I crunched it up at a local event and now im building another Nissan 240sx but the new power is coming from a 01' LS1 M6 out of a 65k mile Trans Am.

    The help I need is every post I read someone suggests something different and I need something totaly differnt!

    Specs & info:

    ~What Cam should I run? This is a TRACK car only and will be run between 3500-redline
    ~What springs & pushrods do you all recommend? Rockers?
    ~What oil pump?
    ~Do I need to do rod bolts?
    ~2800lb car
    ~I will NOT be pulling the heads or replacing pistons stock internals for NOW.

    I know I will need to do a LS2 timing chain.

    Please advise with relistic advice!

    Here is some eye candy from one of our Phoenix International Raceway events:


    Thanks, Jon

    Update, I talked to TSP today the guy Jason over there knows what im looking for he recommended the Torquer V.2 cam with their new PRC Platinum spring kit with ti retainers & pushrods. Cam Specs: 232/234 .595/.598

    Does that sound good to you guys?

    with that light a car and your goals i would spend my money on the valve train to handle all of the high rpm that you are going to need. the comp 918 springs with titanium retainers are good for 7500 rpm but i would try to go beyond that in your case. i would upgrade the rockers too and shoot for 8500 rpm with a good set of double springs similiar to 921s. check the crane rockers. as for the cam i hope some one chimes in but you don't need a lot of lift for this application, you need a responsive well mannered cam not a big one based on what you wrote. If it was in your budget I would also up the compression of you heads as this will also increase the motor throttle response. good luck
