    T/a Ls1 Cam questions

    Ok so, Ive had my 99 trans am for about 2 years now. its "was" at enough power for me but now i am getting ideas about some cams and what not. i have a local tuner that specializes in Lsx motors. But i want your input on what is good and what is bad. Im just getting into Ls1's so i know nothing on the "best" streetable cam. i currently run a stock bottom end,heads vavle train. only mods are Weiland intake, ported Throttle body, and MAF. headers and full exhaust, no cats, no muffler and 4.10gears. Mainly driven on good days...and raced. I run 12.80's with this setup. I just want somthing streetable..you guys say all these cams and such...which i cant find online..so would someone show and explain to me what cam is good for a streetable application but yet help on the track...

    I really can't.
    Non-sponsors. Google 'Texas-Speed'

    LMperformance will have the springs and the pushrods though.

    An average stall (3400) with that cam would be killer.

    if you have the cash I probably would. As long as the car is torn down that far it's a switch worth making IMO. So is the timing chain. I also did an underdrive pulley too when I did mine. None of it is probably required but more like cheap insurance.
    I run that 228 on a 114lsa and it pulls pretty good. Pretty balanced cam for a sunny weather/occasional trip to the track car. I also have a 3500 stall.

    Well it does have a about 40k on this motor...but i never freshened it it was done by my engine builder. So im more than likly going to drop the motor this winter and go threw it again and makes it easier for installing the cam and vavle train..and i need to throw in a new pan gasket because it leaks a little. I mean i think 12.80 is a good time for a fairly stock ls1. and i run with the traction control on so i think if i have this cam and then also got a moser rear end in mind, so i could actually hook with some slicks...
