    That would be a very nice street cam.


    Average tune and that car will idle and drive damn near stock.

    I reckon it is a very streetable cam, especially with heads. I'm putting one in with slightly higher lift on the intake lobe, very soon

    Cheers,

    Thats a nice street cam, but just make sure you might wanna go a little bigger, like 228, so you dont regret it, i have a tsp 228r 114ls1 and i love it, it wont sound stock it thats what your going for, but its great for a daily driver

    thats the exact cam I'm thinking of getting and I have a thread labled streetable heads/cam in which I've been trying to figure out the best combo for streetability and power gains and I believe I'll be very happy with this combo...

    That cam will have GREAT street manners....should have a relatively smooth idle and it should make a good bit of low to mid range power in addition to the gains up top.

    AFR are probably the best heads for are cars. but you will pay for them.

    The OP's cam choice is a little smaller then mine and has a 114 LSA instead of a 112. I have found mine to be extremely streetable. My car usually sees at least 1000 miles a month and is my DD. Only bit of trouble I get sometimes is on a cold start and I just need to let it idle till it settles (usually less then a minute). Should be a great street cam, the heads might affect your gas mileage, but with the cam alone I have not noticed any change in my MPG except for that I like to use a heavy foot more often because it is just fun now
