    I Finally Got My Cam!!!

    Bout time i got my cam.. Just got delivered thursday and been working like an animal the whole weekend so i couldnt post it...It's nice and sexy and shiny lol.

    The specs on the cam is it's a Thunder Racing 231/236 .593/.602 111LSA custom grind... It should be a monster powerband is 2400RPM-6800RPM which is very nice plus i ordered a set of 4.10 along with comp dual tit springs, tit hardened pust rods and more so hopefully when i get it installed after the new year the car will have 400+ RWHP thats what im hoping for!!!

    Anyone know how the drivability is of a big cam like this in the dead of winter is?? Any different from summer??

    I also talked to the guyz at TT Performance who are going to help me with the install and do the tune for me... they estimated they can squeeze 425-435RWHP out of this cam and get it to idle like a 224/224...sound realistic???

    Like they say, "There are tuners, and there are tuners". Horsepower sounds very realistic, provided you have the right bolt-ons to compliment you're new cam.

    Would love to hear it when you're finished, what part of New York are you from? I myself live in New Jersey, work in Manhattan... and am back and forth to queens the majority of my weekends (although, not much of any street racing during the last two months).

    Lemme know if you hit Englishtown, too...
