    can't decide between two cams. HELP!

    I'm going to get one of these two. They are both Comp. Cams..........228/230 @.050 571/573 lift 112LSA PT# 54-428-11 or this one....224/228 @.050 534/537 lift 112LSA PT# 54-418-11.......... Will the smaller cam have the lope that we all like? I figured you guys have heard about all the cams out there so what do you think. I have an M6 so I don't have to worry about a stall.

    Not sure if they are there, but LS1Sounds.com has a lot of cam audio files you can listen to if you are not aware of it. They are both on a 112 and will likely have the same lope, but you need to figure out the overlap to be sure.

    it is recommened though not necessary i believe to upgrade your pushrods. I upgraded to hardened pushrods 7.400".

    NHRA would be able to fill you in more i think...

    both cams are nice. one will be slightly more topend pwr the other maybe a bit more torque. the higher durations will net more topend. 7.4's are recommened and will work as the base circle isnt too far off. the only sure way to know is to use a PR length checker.
