    All of the ls cars have roller cams and lifters. The reduced friction allows more horsepower to be made.

    Unless you enjoy adjusting rockers and such every other weekend, solid rollers are a big chore for a street car. I can see the justification of a solid roller in a drag car, but if its driven a lot, stick with that hydraulic setup.

    Mine is hydraulic as well.

    Went with Morel/Lunati lifters to make sure the cam was handled.

    thats pretty darn big. hows your torque throughout the power band, and how high is your rev limiter set?

    what rods and out of curiosity, why did you choose that lsa?

    That isn't in a stock cubed LS1.
    Torque curve is nice. Comes on real strong at 4200, but does fairly well under that as well.
    Spins to 6700.
    Rods are Lunati ProMods.
    Pistons are -12cc Mahle's.
    The LSA of 113 was perfect for me. Good powerband, not a huge lope (like that cam would be minor anyways).

    Yeah yeah Luos, we're all very impressed. Shit, we practically watched you put that thing together over the winter. Lifters on the stove...God love it!
