    PP stg 2 heads and cam question

    Lets say I get PP stage 2 heads, whats the biggest cam I can run lift wise to avoid having to fly cut the pistons. I know claying them up would be the right way to find out, but if anyone has some suggestions, that would be nice.

    The biggest camshaft depending on where you buy it from, in my case I wanted a Texas Speed Performance camshaft is the Texas Speed Giant Camshaft for Big Cubic Inch LS1's. If you are not going that rought considering that the Patriot Heads Double Gold springs are good to .650 then the magic stick 3 camshaft is the next biggest camshaft you can run with those heads.

    Bigger isn't always better.

    You won't know exactly how much clearance you have unless you clay.

    im making 437/404 with Patriot Ls6 Style Stage II heads (59cc), Comp 224 .581 112lsa, and a ported FAST 90/90, LT's/ TSP TD's...(not re-tuned for the TD's)...

    prior to swapping ONLY to my TD's, i was sitting at 444/395 with an SLP LM catback system...

    best of all, no flycutting...
