    I got a Magic Stick for u MS3 is also a great cam a bit more radical, but is a proven performer.

    From what I understand Predator Z and Patrick G are the cam guru's. I know what u mean though...

    In most cases you would wants a cam less than 230 to be a good DD driveable cam. The Magic Stick 3 specs out at 237/242 .603/.609". The powerband is alot higher also from 2300-6800. With smaller cams they can produce power starting from 1400 rpms.

    The Magic stick has great peak numbers. Sometimes smaller cames can be faster with lower peak numbers, but better under the curve numbers (torque). Most people use this cam as a SERIOUS street/strip cam. Has nice mean loop to it with lower LSA.

    I have seen MS3 setup with PRC 5.3 heads making well over 440RWHP.

    What kind of an idle do you think the Predator Z cam will sound like?

    Its gonna sound mean with a 111LSA and the duration is decent so its gonna give you a great sound. He quoted me 60-65 rwhp and id rather expect those numbers than 70 cus if i dont get 70, after ive been expecting it, im gonna be upset. Now while the street warrior intake is overhyped in a thousand different ways, Pred knows his stuff whether you like him or not and i personally think his cam's are very well thought out. He does have a bunch of nut huggers over there on tech though..

    I doubt you will b dissapointed on the idle and performance of that cam. Theres some viedos on you tube, and alot of guys say that Chris's car hits harder than their larger cams.

    After all this, my buddy has a comp cam he will sell me for only $50. So it is very tempting to do that. I've heard this cam in his LS1 before he did his LQ9 swap, so its a good one.
