    Need opinions on this

    I need opinions on this setup:
    XE 227/233 cam with a 560/569 lift on a 1.6rr (114lsa)
    7.2 Hardened Pushrods
    Pro Magnum 1.6rr

    I may buy this but I want opinions from people that know more than me! This is my daily driver so I'm not looking to kill gas anytime soon. Also I'm not planning on building a major drag car or anything, I just want a nice lope and good power. Hopefully better than a hotcam too. I already have Mac Mid Headers, Magnaflow Exhaust, and Moroso CAI to go along with this package. (There is also some other little bolt-ons and suspension stuff but I won't go into detail) Let me know your opinions on this and what kind of numbers it will make.

    make sure you change springs, retainers, etc, also. And most important, get it tuned after install! That's a fairly aggressive cam, and with a good tune should drive and idle pretty well. I would guess in the range of 380-385rw

    I am (right now) putting in a XE-R 230/230 on a 114 with .591 and expect 390-395, assuming you have an 01 or 02 LS1. I have most bolt ons, etc

    You mention 1.6 rockers and 7.2 pushrods, is this going into a LT1?
