    Torquer guys come in

    Ok been thinking about it and I want a larger cam. I'm gonna bite the bullet and order a stall sometime soon,Prolly around a 3600. I want a cam that is going to make 400+ heads,cam,and bolt ons. I would like a powerband similar to stock,don't wanna rev to 7000 to make power ,also car is a dd so I would like to hear from people that dd cams 22X and larger. I've read mixed things on the torquer,I would like to hear some feed back.

    Finally saw the light, eh?

    Like I said in your older thread, you won't be disappointed with the Torquer V2. I loved mine and "daily drove" it on nice days. I made 445rwhp/395rwtq with some budget 5.3L heads and a FAST90 intake.

    yea mine is nice as well, its in a LQ4 and the power really comes on at about 3500 all the way to 7 grand, it was making 486 with open headers and lS6 stage 3 ported and polished heads, like 440 something with the 2.5 inch cat back on, tomorrow though i am putting on a 3 inch magnaflow with resonators and tips i picked up for 50 bucks on CL, complete 3 inch sytem. anyway though, i like the cam in my 6.0 not sure how it will do in an LS1 though.

    If you get the TV2 ground on a 111 power comes on sooner and it will pull to about 6500 rpm.

    If a professional tuner can't tune a 111LSA cam, they should find a new job.

    My MS4 is ground on a 111. It is also a daily driver. It pulls to around 6500. My tuner didn't have trouble tuning it. Seems I'm running faster NA than you are with a 150 shot. But you do get better milage than I do. Like I said get a TSP TV2 on a 111. Maybe you should meet my tuner!

    I run a 227/231 111lsa +2, it starts pull hard around 2400rpm on up past 6500( rev-limiter set at 6500rpm), if I'd let it.

    I would suggest going with atleast a cam the size of the TSP Torquer 2. I believe the specs are 232/234. That is a good all around size for a daily driver. I have never rode in a cammed car, and my cam is an 230 cam. I have a vigilante 3200 and it drives great. Very civil. I wish i would have went with just a slightly bigger cam and stall. I think the TSP Torquer 2 and 3600 stall will be a great setup.

    IMO, If you really want a cam like the V3 but without so much lift then go with a custom grind from tsp with LSL lobes, at least on the intake side. 231(.617" lsl)/ 234(.598" xer) and a 110-113 lsa. And it won't cost any more than a shelf grind.

    Another very good (better) option is 231(.617" lsl)/231(.617"lsl) with a 110-113lsa

    I thought you might like some other possible option.
