    Magic Bumpstick?

    Is anyone here running a TSP Magic Stick 3 (or 4) camshaft? I'm seriously thinking of going with the the 3, any ideas or thoughts on that?

    Of course I am going to beef up the valvetrain to handle the extra lift.

    Lemons has a ms4. I dont know if you have to flycut the piston or not with em. I dont think so.

    he should jump on here and say something when he sees this... but most likely hes banned

    Please explain why you want such a large cam....



    'Peaky' cams aren't always the best for a set-up.

    Ms3 and 5.3 heads are a good combo though...

    Call comp and give them the specs of the ms3 and see if they can't do a custom grind that may be better suited for your build?

    From what I have read, as long as you are close to the stock CC on the heads you wont need to flycut. When I went to my local dyno and talk to him, he also said that it should be fine. And unlike some other dyno places I hear about this guy sure did know his shit about LS1's. He also showed me a project he was working on with an LS7 in an 69ish Camero

    with the 5.3 heads but not the ls6 stage 2, you have to flycut those, thats what they said.
