    True.
    Everyone has their own way of breaking something in.
    Technically there is no break in time needed...other than a heat cycle.
    If you want to be safe...be easy on it. Good luck with that though.

    Put an extra clean pair of undies in the console, for when you shit yourself like Sarge said!

    Good point forgot to mention that...I got new undies J/K

    Point I was referring to is part of the $400 labor is after everything is done he empties the oil and fills it up with Mobil 1, that's part of the deal.

    Hurley, any particular reason you went with the 114 over the 112? I'm curious, as I too am heavily leaning more toward the TR224/224 , over the FM11 for my daily driver... but the 224's LSA is 112 though.

    By the way, congrats!!!

    Actually have a used 112 sitting right here if you want it. I am in Philly, I can meet you halfway. TR224 .563 112 LSA. I decided to go new after much confusion with a member of another site, only went with the 114 because TR had the 112 on back order, so I couldn't get one for awhile. Not going to make a worlds of diff, but M6 cars like the 112 better, power comes in a few hundred RPMs quicker, and it peaks a few more hp. First choice was a 112.

    Futral can be a PITA to deal with. Also TR 224 is a proven street cam, plenty of guys have had success with it you really can't go wrong with it. One other thing is from what I've read/heard/seen on dyno sheets the TR224 OWNS the F11 with under teh curve power, but it does lose out only at peak hp at high up RPMs...so you have to decide where you drive at? In what powerband?

    it will be heat cycled on the dyno when they flog youre car.
    i was there when they were tuning my car.
    it almost made me sick when i heard them make that car scream to 6500prm, lol.
    not only did they do it once, but about a dozen times

    But that's just my opinion, just hate to see someone throw good money away because of a little impatience.

    watch a tuner tune a car on the dyno. they basicly beat on the motor so they can get the tune correct for whatever set up that car has.
    its broken in on the dyno.

    is the cam you ordered, straight up, advanced or retarded??
    that will help decide where and what powerband the cam will or wont kick in.

    I just ordered a regular old TR224 .563 114, that's all I asked for. Guess that's straight up then?

    Guys, you may be forgetting there really isn't a break-in for hydraulic roller cams.

    When you break in a flat tappet cam, you are supposed to really coat the lobes and lifter faces with assy lube, then vary the rpms in a range from 1500 to 3000 or so for 15-20 minutes to get good oil circulation in the crank case. You'll generate a slight amount of metal, but thats a non issue in an LS1.

    Heat cycles for the springs = good advice.

    EDIT - didn't see that there was a second page, good luck to you Hurley - Enjoy!

    Thanks!! I'm excited, did plenty of research on this cam, and time and time again it came back to the good ole TR224. Others peaked more hp, but I don't track race, and rarely drive above 5000 RPMs and teh TR224 seemed to own other cams with the under the curve powerband.
