    While the 112 LSA is the more desireable for an aggressive sounding idle, and I admit I love the way mine sounds, and turns heads, a 114 LSA with give you a bit more driveability as the power come on earlier in the powerband, and isn't so "peaky". In other words, most 114 cams are ground for DD cars in mind. Just as you can buy heads designed for top end, but of course you can drive them as DD, but you'll lose a bit of the bottom end "friendliness". Same goes for cams, although it's a bit different due to the nature of the infinite grinds you can have custom done.
    If it's that great lopey idle you want..go for the 112, if it's ultimate drivability you're after, then go for the 114. Either way, you'll need a good tune.

    Those are some of the worst cams out there for daily drivers. Yeah the MS4 makes a shit load of power, but how often are u gonna rev up to or past 4k in ur DD?? Not to mention u might have to flycut ur pistions.

    320 maybe?? I think u can do 3500 but it might be to much. I actually have no clue about stalls but most run a 3500. U can chop off nearly 1.5 sec off ur et but thatll require a 4k stall

    Anybody know what the intake/exhaust flow ratio is on the stock LS1 heads at .500 lift? I hear the same duration cams work well in heads with E vs. I flow differential of 80%.
