    What stories?

    I know of about 50 cars with them... only ever even heard of one problem. One of the owners had the electric motor die after 2 years. Most of them are going and were installed back in 04-06.

    At low to moderate RPMs the street pumps move more water than the stock pump, so they help cooling for a driver.

    Pricey yes....but replacement motors I believe are only $60 and can be changed without removing the pump ie breaking any seals. Not bad considering GM replacement pumps are a pretty penny themselves.

    2002 SS Camaro

    Running that cam in my car right now and i love it i gained 55 rwhp with it. the push rods are just the standard size 7.4 i think i was. just e mail the guys at TSP they know what they are doing and they helped me out quit a bit. After the cam my rwhp was 398 and 376 torque. other mods are lt headers high flow cat true duels and a maf. You would defiantly need a tune after this cam and i now only get about 15 on the highway but i dont care i love it lol.

    Thunder Racing + Raptor cam = Power. There is a GTO on you tube that runs 11.6xs, With a "cam only" set up.

    112 is the lsa as is the 114 but the +2 is added timing from tdc.

    ordered the v2 with the stg2 ls6 heads!!! my motor is the 04 gto, whats the pushrod length? i didnt order that yet cause i wasnt sure. i know 7.400 is standard but still, not sure.
    i got the 112+0 cause they told me they test the two side by side with the 114 and didnt hear a diffence. i can always add timing later

    if you want to add it later you will need to get a Adjustable Timing Set
