    Need Help with selecting a cam

    What has worked for you guys cam wise? i have about 4000 to spend and i want to stay n/a, 1200 of that is going to body work. Iam getting a fast intake and 42lb injectors, ud pulley, ported oil pump, and iam porting my heads (thats free). I just need to know a cam and what i need for the cam. Iam also a A4 but i have a 3500 stall already so iam good in that department.

    I was thinking about this combo
    Torquer V2 114 LSA
    COMP 918 Springs
    Heavy Duty LS6 Ported Oil Pump
    Gasket Kit
    Double Roller Timing Chain
    TSP Hardend 7.400 Rods

    What do you think?

    I've seen more people go with 112 too. That's a decent cam choice.

    I have to agree with this. I went 113 LSA (228R cam) and kinda wish I had done a 112 to get more chop.

    personally. i dont like it too choppy. id go for the 114 or 113. you will probably lose power up high though

    Get a Lingenfelter Oil pump, out flows the LS6 P&P and is $60 cheaper. I have it and my oil pressure is 75 PSI at idle.

    The T2 on a 114 will chop plenty in an automatic.

    The double roller isn't necessary for a cam only car. Throw a $45 LS2 chain in it and call it a day. I've used LS2 chains in 500-600HP builds with no problems.

    The rest of your parts list looks good.

    why is that? is your cam more aggresive? or is the 228r?

    no it's smaller than the 228r. now I went with a 3,800 stall and am really thinking about going to a 236/242 which is bigger than the 228r

    at the time i went with the cam I have it only cost me $110 so I can't complain at all
