    why not go a little bigger? 224/224 or something like that. the one your talking about has less duration than a gm hotcam, which the hot cam is like a redheaded stepchild of cams. what kind of lift does that trick flow have?

    GM ASA cam is a good compromise for a driver and weekend warrior. I don't know about the low 11's, but it will make a big difference.

    Good Luck

    i think i would go a touch bigger, a little more duration, i think that asa cam has the same lift as the hotcam just more duration. the tr224 has a decent lope to it and makes good power from what i've read perfect dd cam in my opinion.

    well, the 224 cam has a better power band all together and is very daily driver tame.

    Just to put another option out there I have talked with Trick Flow some and wanted to make sure my cam choice would work well with their heads, and they said it should be great. I also have alot of worry about going to aggressive with my car since it is a DD, but I have settled on the VRX3 which is a 226/228 with .585/.588. Just putting out another option, should have some results here by the end of the week.
