    That kids car is sick fast! Put down somethin like 420/394 through an auto with a 4000 stall (10 bolt though) and ran like a 10.86 or somethin close to that. I'm hopin for near 400/400 ish through a 9" with 4.11's (when I put it in).

    What was your tq like and I'm assuming you can run pretty good times with an auto, 12 bolt, and sticky tires?

    I always comment went you 2 start talking about this cam cus i cant wait to get it in. Just came in the mail today so im waiting to get back from school to get it in! What were your numbers before the cam John? Cus those are solid numbers through an auto and 12bolt. Thats def over 400 on in an m6 but yours would still be faster haha.

    To the OP, 224 on a 114 lsa would be perfect. But most people wanna step up a couple sizes once they have had that cam for awhile.

    Yeah his and my numbers are similar because his converter was locked which is good for another 15rwhp and he has an 85mm lid and maf that he atributes to an additional 10rwhp as well as a custom ram air. I wouldn't say his #'s would be typical but if you follow his setup you could at least be close but you can't make up good DA if you don't have it....which he has! lol

    I'm not completely sure but I wanna say around 330rwhp but that was through a stock converter and 10 bolt. I know I'm losing some power due to the 3:73 gears and probably the stall.

    I'll be running at Cecil County Dragway and they usually have awesome DA. Track is almost at sea level and they get nice cool air and tailwinds, but remember, I'm slow cause I have an m6
