    a 224 on a 114 would idle like normal with a good tune and a 112 would be a little choppy.

    what is the rev limiter on the stock car?

    do you have to reset it to get to that cam's powerband?

    what about other valvetrain parts. what needs to be replaced with that cam?

    i think its right at 6k, i dont remember.
    the tuner resets everything needed for a aftermarket cam install.
    youll need, new springs, retainers, hardened push rods, ls2 timing chain and a ported ls6 oil pump (optional)

    Okay so let me get this straight?

    224 (first number) = is the intake lift?
    227 (second number) = exhaust lift?

    .569 = intake duration
    .571 = exhuast duration

    and 114 LSA = Lobe seperation?


    am i right on the money or am I just a smacktard

    I am fairly certain you are very close just switch the intake and duration numbers.
