    I am uploading a sound clip of my old 226/234 554/575 112 right now.
    It was on the stock tune, so it was rich as hell.
    But you can get the idea.

    This includes the first attempt at starting...which it did.

    offering up our opinions and suggestions, since a mean sounding cammed car can be achieved with smaller cams while being more user friendly is what we are wanting you to consider. we arent asking you to walk away from a T-Rex, rather just understand what quite possibly its going to take to get you something that you will be pleased with for the amount of money you will be dropping...
    i like the way you worded that.. i want to her like sound clips of a 228 compare to the trex

    very nice Lous! especially when most of the work is done by you. I wish I had power tools and a garage where to get my hands dirty...

    Probably.
    Just lower the idle a touch.


    I will get something together here in a bit comparing the two set-ups.
    226/234 554/575 112 against the stroker 248/254 629/622 113

    T-rex cam, notice how it sounds like the engine is dieing at idle.

    mannn idk what to do... i just want it to sound sick and i figured i dont need to worry about the power because the trex while you may say you cant get into the powerband as easy.. its still going to make good power... and it costs absolutely no extra money to do a trex rather than a smaller cam

    the exhaust setup also has alot to do with the sound you are looking for as well. you have a y-pipe setup now, but if you went to true duals and dumps, it would be even louder...

    Not right off, but it will cost more in the long run.
    Valvesprings with a cam like that should be replaced every 20,000 miles or so.
    I am going to be replacing mine at 15K miles.


    You can control the lope a little with the tune. You can control the idle RPM. It also very much depends on the exhaust. Cutouts open, mine sounds like it has much more cam than it does capped.
    Hard for me to find old footage of that old cam.
    Also not leaving this uploaded that long.
