    I have a good feeling that he is meaning 218/228 and .525/.525 @112---translation: Hotcam(LT1)

    Hard lope! Sounds wicked.

    youre better off getting a 224 cam with a 112 lsa.

    Honestly, I have to agree with nhraformula. If you are JUST doing the cam kit....go bigger, like above^^ You wont get much of a gain with the cam, alone.

    No, I mean, if you get the cam without the LT4 heads and intake, the gain will not be worth the trouble. If you are JUST installing a cam with the stock heads and intake--go bigger.

    That is a pretty mild cam that sounds great. It has more bark than bite you could say. As for aggressiveness, it isn't. It has real lazy lobes and a slow ramp rate.

    i'm guessing by the posts so far, it's not for the car in your avatar. if it's for a LT1 car, then i can tell you about a guy that put the whole LT4 conversion on his LT1 camaro and picked up 100 rwhp. now that's uncommon. the norm has been 70-80 rwhp.
