Can someone tell me, what's the largest Cam?

This is a discussion on Can someone tell me, what's the largest Cam? within the Internal Engine forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; I've seen whereas people have knocked SLP products. Why Is that?...

    With all bolt ons, I was making 346 HP after putting in the TSP228R and getting a tune I am at 411 HP with stock heads. I wasn't expecting that high of a number, especially with an automatic. Overall, very happy w/ the cam!

    Outdated designs, terrible customer service, overrated power gains, pricey.

    Airbox lid and a quality catback. I recommend the SLP lid and a Magnaflow catback.
    Headers would be next. Budget buy I would go with Pacesetters.

    Before getting into the internals, get all the bolt-ons first, otherwise you won't be taking advantage of the cam and heads potential.
    this is verey tru i have done the lid and magnaflow cat back and am verey happy the subframe connectors are a must and would be a good idea befor the cam

    I really don't think sub-frame connectors are a must, there are alot of people that don't have them including myself and are fine with it. They may be a really nice upgrade and worth the money but I don't think they're a must until you start getting the front tires light. Also the same with the 12 bolt. Unless your planning on regular trips to the track with some DR's or slicks, you should be fine with the 10 bolt as long as your cam only.

    I have seen stock LS1 cars that have the rear quarter panel dimples from chassis flex.
    Subframe connectors will take care of that, and really stiffen the car up.
    Worth the $120-200 (depending on which ones you get) to me. More so if it keeps the body straight.

    That's the first time I've ever heard of that happening. Must be pretty rare. What happened to your T/A?

    Nothing.
    Winter time...hibernating.

    I have seen several cars have the dimples. I LOVED the difference the subframe connectors made. Worth every dime.

    I'm just worried about ground and exhaust clearence. I guess the weld ins are the only way to go huh?

    Weld in is more sturdy. Clearance isn't a problem for me, and I am on the ProKit springs.

    Think of it this way. To make the most outta the cam, ull want the car to breath very well before swapping in a cam. The better she breaths the better the cam will work. Youll need a full intake/exhaust setup before thinking about internal engine modifications. I have read stories about people putting a cam in a 98 stock z/28. With just and exhuast he dynoed 330. After LT's, Lid, Intake and tune he made 395!!

    I was told that the intake manifold on a 2001 TA WS6 (RAm Air) is actually a LS6 intake; not a LS1 intake. Was this a true statement?

    With that said, I'm thinking the LS6 intake is more than adequate for the TSP 228R bumpstick; or is there something that much better to justify the additional $$$?

    Additionally, I'm thinking, the 10 bolt rear should be adequate UNLESS, I plan on spending a lot of time at the strip or dumping the clutch at 4g's.

    Dumping the clutch on street tires isn't going to hurt the rearend...it won't get abused much. You will spin the tires...hooking is what tends to kill the rearends.
    I ran around (even raced on) my 10 bolt with 450RWHP for a while. Held fine, but I didn't attempt to hook at the track.

    LS6 intake is a very good intake...for the money it would work very well with that cam. FAST would be worth a couple extra HP...but not really cost effective with the price of that set-up.
    The FAST works well on H/C cars, and strokers.
