    Have a question for cam guys!

    lift .566/.568 dur @ .050 224/224 lobe sep. 112

    Is this a good comp cam. Have mods in sig plus LS6 Heads that will be P&P with milling. Will this cam make good power with some street manners.

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

    Personally, I think you could go bigger, but that also depends on your goals. My cam is a 226/228 .585/.588 lsa 112. I drive my car roughly 1000 miles a month, and don't really have any problems with my cam (getting a good tune is very important). I could have even gone bigger, but I did not want to be going through springs every year.

    Well my tune will be from LS1Speed so I should be good on that aspect. My goals were roughly around 425-450rwhp. I know numbers don't matter, 1/4 mile time does but thats what power I am shooting for if that helps.

    It is a very good cam. Much like the TR224-112 I am running. Great low and midrange and stays strong through 6200 rpm. Many will tell you that it us too small. That's for you to decide. I like the street manners and power under the curve. If I need more, I re-jet the N2O.

    Good cam. Period.

    Would my power goals be attainable with that cam though. My car is a weekend warrior now but still want it drivable on the street. I also don't want to be going through springs every year as posted before.

    if speed inc is doing your tune, call and ask larry what he would recommend based off your goals and driving habits.

    I buy all my parts from speed and they do my tuning! excellent shop.

    my cam is 231/237 6xx/6xx 112lsa speed inc grind.

    I wouldnt recommend going that big for a daily driver. My car sees about 3000-4000 miles in the spring/summer and thats it.

    SI3 224/224 114 or 112lsa
    the SI3 with 112lsa will have a mean lope in the exhaust and will be noticable in both fumes smell and sound. higher the number for LSA smoother sounding/running cam and less fumes

    if your car is a DD stick with the SI3, its a great cam, makes strong numbers through the rpms.

    Last 2 years my car has seen around 4,000 miles for the year (after 5 years of DD) I think I will call speed.inc since I have bought from them before and its the closest shop I trust to dyno my baby. Thanks for the help, maybe a custom grind. I just found this cam for dirt cheap and was wondering if I would be pleased with it.
