    Texas Speed 228R Camshaft
    Item#:
    25-228R


    The Texas Speed 228/228 .588/.588 Camshaft With Your Choice of Lobe Seperation.

    This camshaft features Comp Cams XER lobes! The XER lobes have been proven to make big horsepower & torque thanks to their aggressive ramp rates & healthy lift.

    1600-6300 RPM Power Band; This is an excellent performance camshaft with a smooth idle! Custom tuning for automatic cars required

    This camshaft typically gains approximately 40rwhp!

    http://www.texas-speed.com/shop/item...d=167&catid=44

    generally you want to stay under .600 lift.

    i have a slighly smaller cam, 224/224 581/581 114 lsa,
    long tube headers, ls6 intake, volant cai, hooker exhaust, sub frame connectors, 3000 stall and computer tuning.

    you will be right around the 400 rwhp mark.
    with a smaller cam im at 380. now if my car was an m6 like yours, my car would be putting down about 390ish, but because im a stalled automatic,the converter eats some h.p

    so with this cam and the mods that are already on the car and the headers i should have about 400hp then...

    once again I have to agree with NHRAFORMULA. That is the cam I plan on going with. Not sure if he said yet or not but you will need new springs and chromoly pushrods, LS2 timing chain or one of your choice and possibly a high flow oil pump.

    Stock springs will not support the lift. You could run Comp 918's they are rated at .600 lift or you can go with some Dual springs rated at .650 lift. I believe the stock Ls1 springs are rated at .500 or .550 cant remember. You need the hardened pushrods cause you dont want to bend one or at least you want it to be less likely anyway. Timing chain is weak on LS1 and oil pump can be junk too. I figure better safe than sorry. If your oil pressure is pretty good now then you may not need the oil pump but I would do the timing chain for sure.
