    Great Cam thats easy on Gas and if you were to daily drive it, great power as well.

    Are you looking at getting heads as well?

    I wasnt sure if the heads are different or not. The guy i bought it from said that they were 853 heads. But i don know why they would put older heads in an 2001. So im not sure is there a way to look at the engine and tell?

    on the driver side on the bottom right side of the head if you will is a number, it should say 241, let us know,

    as for the cam i guess it all depends on what you want, i would say in my opinion that the 228r is a lil to big for street driving with an auto,

    i would look into the highest duration being a 224, but there is the voodoo cam and i think its only like 220, really streetable and great mid range power, .

    if you plan on heads i say the 224 for sure or maybe higher if you get some afr;s

    I was in the same boat as you at first with not knowing too much about cams, all the numbers and everything. Well here's a link that can probably help you on understanding what you should start looking for. Here's the link www.ls1howto.com click on the f-body cam and valvespring swap link on the right after the next page comes up there should be a chart under selecting the right cam for you. Hope this helps out.

    that link is a perfect write up on the cam swap, used it twice I had the TR224 cam and loved it, awesome street cam, i put out 383 rwhp with it

    but ended up putting something bigger in and went with MTI 236/236/0.590/05.90/112 and it is insane. But Note you will neeed some tuning to correct the idle, and with yours being an auto I am sure there are other things to tune for the tranny to operate correctly
