    GM Hot cam kit.

    Im wanting to install the GM hot cam kit in my car over the winter and I was wondering if any of you guys have used it and what kind of performance you got with it.

    That cam has a spec of 219/228@.050 525/525 which has the same spec of the LT4 hot cam. I think GM came out with that cam for warranty purposes if installed at a dealership. But 35thz28camaro is right. There are better cams out there. Depending on your set up, with stock interanls and intake I would lean toward a reverse spit cam.

    Whats wrong with the GM cam? I want a cam to pick up power and torque but stay driveable for long trips. You guys got any suggestions? Ive got a 80mm BBK TB, SLP lid, K&N filter, SLP MAF, cats removed, and flowmaster muffler. I want to add a cam and some long tubes to my combo. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    the 224 cam would be a good fit for you.

    i had the 224/224/0.563/0.563/112 cam and it was very drivable no issues at all
    i got a 236/236/0.590/0.590/112 cam now and it is still very streetable occasional bucking at 1800 rpm, but I believe that is a timing issues i gotta tweek

    the 224/224 cam is the most popular cam out there because of its tame street manners and good power bump.

    i have a hot cam. if i hadnt bought the car with it installed, i woulda gone with a 224/224. makes decent power over stock. with ls6 heads/ls6 springs/slp lts and slp loudmouth catback it made 370.

    Hotcam is a decent cam...but since you will be in there anyways, might as well get the most out of it.
    That doesn't mean go huge, means get what you want so you don't have to change later.

    I like the 224/224 or 228/228 cams for a street car. Mean powerband and great manners.

    Agreed. Reverse split should make the best power on stock heads theoretically.....if ported heads then it is a different story.
