    CompCam

    Ok I need some help with info
    I'm looking at a XER-287HR-12 cam from well you guessed it compcam
    I need help on what the LSA is and what the duration is at .050
    All I know is that the duration at .006 is 287 as it states, but even on the compcam site it says no further info on this cam
    And also does anyone know a good valve spring setup to make this work on stock heads
    And ONE more question
    What about push rods?

    I bet that cam would be pushing the limits for a stock cubed motor.
    DESCRIPTION:
    HYDRAULIC ROLLER-Xtreme Energy XE-R design for larger cubic inch LS6 and LS1
    Patriot springs, Manley springs are both great.

    darn i was afraid it would be, but i heard that cam before and it has a nice sound... are there any others with a low lsa with nice choppy sound that you can think of that will fit good? and btw ur the second one to recomend patriot so im thinking about going that way

    check out ls1sounds.com. There's several different set ups on there you can listen to. Do you have an m6 or a4 and do you daily drive your car?

    There are several grinds that you can get much lower LSA's on. I got a MS3 (havent installed it yet hopefully it will be next week) but I had the choice of 110 to 114 (I went 114 for a more undercover lope and better nitrous use). Look around at different manufacturers for their specs many have options. An besides my cam may have been spec'd at Texas-Speed and is called the "magic stick 3" it's a comp cam. Came straigh from comp with the MS3 specs.

    There was a magazine article a few months ago that the writer talked to Comp, Lunati, Crane, etc. They said they like people to call them with cam questions. So I checked and it says their customer service number is (800) 999-0853. Hope this helps. Good luck

    with an m6 you can get away with a lot more cam than an auto but if you're daily driving you have to understand what you *may* be getting into. Who do you plan on tuning your car? That is the single most important question you should answer before picking out a big cam.
