    How streetable do you want the car to be? I have seen the MS3 put down around 400 with full bolt ons.

    I have seen a 228/228 make 440RWHP with the bolt-ons.

    Never will understand why people always lean on the dyno numbers of those monster cams. Just because it dyno's high doesn't mean it will drive nice or even perform that well.
    Those bigass cams need additional support from gears/stall/etc to perform up to potential.

    It is all in the set-up and what you want out of the car. Custom grind is going to be ideal.

    Yeah a smaller cam can make good power and run great. MS3 was the first one that came to mind since they are getting more popular.

    I have full bolt ons, with a 3200 stall, 3.73's and a MS3 and it idles good in traffic and would be a fine dd car if it needed to be. Not sure what the dyno is since I haven't had time to get the tuning tweaked and take it to a shop with a dyno but I know it's alot of fun and has to bee around the 380 to 400 mark since the car is alot faster than it was before the cam and it was at 345rwhp then.
