    That's a baby cam. I wouldn't use it myself when a 224 cam has perfect drivability.

    Agreed.
    Barely bigger than an LS6 cam.


    Honestly...ANY cam will require tuning. The smaller the cam, the more you can slip by, but I wouldn't recommend it.


    TSP's 228R is a great daily driver cam. Same as the Thunder TR224.

    Baby cam. Get a 22x intake and exhaust duration cam. The 224 is a good one that retains driveabliliy.

    All cams benefit from VE table precision, even the factory cam. It goes hand and hand....

    go with a 224 or 228 cam you will love the midrange.

    Read this Comp article for some results with the XR265HR - http://www.compcams.com/Community/Ar...ID=-1044516358

    Blokes over here have run this cam and it provides plenty of off-idle and low-midrange torque, which is good for a street car, but it is outdone up in the higher rev-range by the larger cams.

    I reckon the 220/220 .581/.581 @ 114+2 lsa cam will do what you want and it will be almost stock-mannered. You can - just - get away without a stall converter in an auto with this cam.

    No matter which cam you choose though, I'd recommend a proper tune to get the most out of it.

    Cheers,

    Macca
