    its definately a decent size cam. I am looking at getting one that has about the same duration but 110 lsa is a bit close. it will be pretty choppy at idle and low rpm. you mite want to look for a 112 lsa for a street car and maybe even a 114 if you have to pass emissions.
    I'm not an expert on this just been doing a lot of reading lately, looking for the right cam for my car.

    Like said above, it's gonna be a borderline cam for a daily driver and will have a choppy idle. I'd push for a larger LSA though. Prob a 112-114 if you still want to have a choppy idle. I'd go a little smaller cam if you want to have a better DD with better low end torque.

    the ( +1 ) should be the amount of timing advance built into the cam from the factory if you put the cam in strait up without degreeing it. (1 degree of advance)

    I'm running a Comp Cams 223/227 .637/640 110 LSA................was VERY choppy and hard to keep running when I would first start up the SS.
    Had it dyno tuned recently and the tuner pretty much got it smoothed out and it starts up and runs fine now..........................and really liking it now.

    fxgs, ur running way more lift than he is though. the chop is a byproduct of the total overlap which has to do with all 3 measurements. i would tune anyways, but i think that cam is more streetable than you guys think. i run a 232/234 595/598 113, with the extra lift and duration mine chopped pretty good but smoothed way out after some tuning
    also runs way better once warmed up (idle that is)

    You are correct...........after my tune it the chop really smoothed out, the idle was much better and the SS is even more fun to drive.

    I think that is an accurate comment. What some people live with, others may not.

    Personally, I reckon it is gonna be a fairly rough cam to get going nicely on a daily driver. Sure, it will work, but it won't be anywhere near smooth.

    Also, cams such as the XE-R lobed 220/220, 224/224 and 228/228 will make more under the curve, especially low-midrange than this cam. It will do better after 6000rpm though, especially with a FAST90/92 and better heads/exhaust.

    Cheers,

    Macca
