    That cam is on a 114 center to attempt to make it a bit more civil for people who want to run it in a street car.

    Do you mean streetable as in daily driver or weekend toy? Also, are you and M6 or A4?

    If you have an auto, you'll want a healthy stall to make that cam work properly without fighting you at every stop light. How streetable that cam is depends mostly on the skills and patience of your tuner.

    the 114 is relative to the duration of both lobes. you look at overlap to see the differences. a small cam can sound like a big cam. both of these cams will sound almost the same even though durations are different due to the overlap.

    DUR @ .004" 284*/284*
    DUR @ .050" 216*/222*
    LIFT .531/.531
    OVERLAP 56*
    LSA 114*

    DUR @ .004" 286*/ 290*
    DUR @ .050" 224*/ 228*
    LIFT .551/.551
    OVERLAP 55*
    LSA 116*

    for giggles, here's a sound clip of this cam in a 408 motor
    DUR @ .004" 290*/ 294*
    DUR @ .050" 228*/ 232*
    LIFT .551 / .551
    OVERLAP 68*
    LSA 112*

    here's what happens when you go from a 112 LSA to a 114 LSA given same duration numbers. it changes the overlap by 4*.

    DUR @ .004" 272*/280*
    DUR @ .050" 210*/218*
    LIFT .531/.531
    OVERLAP 48*
    LSA 114*

    DUR @ .004" 272*/280*
    DUR @ .050" 210*/218*
    LIFT .531 / .531
    OVERLAP 52*
    LSA 112*

    this cam ground 4* advanced. it's pretty radical for a street cam. but, like everyone says, streetability is dependant upon your tolerance.

    Depends what you consider streetable. I would highly recommend trying to find some people with cammed ls1s and have them take you for a ride.

    personally, thats a bit too radical for my tastes.

    Since its ground 4* advanced, it should put the intake lobe centerline at 110* but the Lobe Separation angle should still be 114*. The overlap would remain the same, but the intake valve closes 4* sooner to help build cylinder pressure at low engine speeds.

    Advancing the cam should help it gain back a bit of its low end, but as others have stated, it is still a bit on the wild side.

    Yeah...
    But your idea of a streetable car is a full-out drag car on street tires.


    Streetable is all perception.
    Daily driver material is also one to look at.

    I am running a 248/254 629/622 113 in mine.
    Streetable...yes.
    Daily driver material...no.

    is the +4 any good, also how would this work in a blower or turbo setup

    If you are wanting a power adder, you should really select the cam last. You would want to tailor the cam to work with a blower or supercharger, and both have different requirements. You'll want to go smaller than what you started with to to build cylinder pressure and torque at low engine speeds.
