    It does have the LS6 intake.... and possibly the LS6 block... but as far as number... with saying a custom grind cam, a pulley.. etc.. its too vague to give a real good estimate... plus the transmission makes a huge difference. But either way you'll most likely be above the 350 mark at the wheels.... As I'm 342/355 at the wheels with stock engine and suspension....just a couple bolt ons...

    A 'custom cam' leaves a lot open for interpretation. Cam specs will be useful.

    Thats a pretty big cam! umm maybe around 430rwhp, not sure, not to many people i know have that cam or one that big. most guys go a little smaller cause they are daily driven.

    You plan on driving this car on the street? Because if you are, you won't like yourself very much.

    X2. That cam is going to be all top end. Also adding to the confusion of giving you a ballpark guess is the computer tune that that cam will need. If this is going to be a mostly street car and the engine not spend most of its time around the redline then I wouldn't recommend it. I don't remember which magazine it was in recently, but there was a huge section on cams and getting one that would be the best fit with the mods you have not just a cam to try and build the engine around. I believe it had the contact info for lunati and comp as well as maybe a few others. The custom grind amount is usually close or the same as the normal amount for something like the MS4 and I think you would probably be happier.

    best all around cam and good under the power curve would be a 224 cam ranging to 228, to 232 max for a daily driver. i have a 224 cam now: Comp 224/224 .581/.581 @112lsa, and it's awesome. however i want more power/pull and bought a TSP 231/237 .598/.595 @112+2 lsa.

    click on the links in my sig. hope this helps. if you get a cam, don't forget the other upgrades you need to do as well...

    Thank you for posting the name of the magazine. I saw it once and went back and couldn't find it. Now I can stop looking like an idiot for pointing people to a good article without knowing the name of the magazine in which to find the article.
