    CAm Upgrade..?

    I was recommended a 230/230 600/600 112+4 LSA Cam.

    I have a 1999 Trans Am WS6 M6
    LS6 Heads and Intake
    Pacesetter Headers
    Borla Exhaust
    SLP Lid
    tune
    Stock Rear End
    LCA,SFC,TA

    This is my daily driver. Will this cam be too lopey? Or will it be just right...?( I want to get a good bit over the 400RWHP mark)

    I think that cam would work for a d/d.
    Someone on this board has a cam very close to that if not same. Can't remember who though.

    I think the +4 is "advancing" the cam. Which should make it idle better, but might hurt the "under the curve" power.

    Can't remember exactly, but I think that's how it works.

    Correct, but I can't remember for sure if that's how it works...you can find your answers in a search...or wait for a more experienced member to chime in.

    I won't be doing my cam swap till the spring, so I forget all the details on what I need to know, but I think I am right.

    Well I can't speak from experience, but you could always put cats in (if you don't have them already) and a couple mufflers to quiet it down I bet...

    i was in a similar situation and i ended up going with the Texas Speed Torquer V2 and love it for my DD....it has a decent lope and makes damn good power.

    you can co with a bigger cam than what your looking at but always remember that you will need a tune

    if you want less lope and better idle, go with a 114 °, or a 116° lsa....also imo +4 ° advance sounds like a lot to me, I'd look for maybe +1 or +2 °
