I was recommended a 230/230 600/600 112+4 LSA Cam.
I have a 1999 Trans Am WS6 M6
LS6 Heads and Intake
Stock Rear End
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.

112+4? How is it for a DD
10-17-2009, 07:29 PM #7
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.

meaning I won't gain as much hp as i would if it had a lopey idle?
10-17-2009, 07:33 PM #9
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.
10-17-2009, 07:41 PM #10
yeah well that's the sacrifice i'll have to make lol i dont want a big old lopey idle, cops around here will be all F***IN over me lol

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...
10-17-2009, 07:52 PM #12
Yeah I guess your right....lol I don't know, we will see I guess. Still have a bit of time to decide since we have winter lol

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 tune2000 B4C Special Service Package Z28 - Kooks 1&7/8 Stepped 2'' - TSP Torquer V.2 - FAST 92/92 - BDR 4000 Conveter - Xtreme Trans Stage II - Full UMI Suspension - Pacesetter LT's - Comp Drag Shocks - Magnaflow - Cutout - ZO6 MAF - FTP LID - Street Tuned -

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 °
