    They are going to feel like basically the same cam the split just might make a tad bit more on the top end and carry out just a tad longer. However everyone is going to tell you that you need to do stall first. I'm not its your car do with it as you please. But why don't you want to add a stall?

    do a're gonna dislike driving a cammed car on the stock stall very much. If anything do the stall and not the cam.

    Take the advice, do a stall first or pick a much milder camshaft.

    Those cams will have a slight chop at idle, and with a stock stall the car will try to push through the brakes, act like it struggles to idle, poor vacuum etc....
    It really makes for an unpleasant car to drive around town. You can fiddle with the tune to make it idle smoother, richen the idle, dial in more idle advance to help smooth things, and even install the cam advanced to help smooth the idle.

    In the end this is all just a bandaid fix for whats really needed,,,,,a looser converter. Not to mention the LS1 is a bit high strung anyway even with the stock cam.

    What's up with all these posts lately of people wanting camshafts and no stall converter???

    I agree w/the above!! ls1 car w/a stock cam & aftermarket converter will usualy be faster than an ls1 car w/aftermarket cam & stock converter!
