    Torquer V2. Are these springs good enough?

    I ordered the Torquer V2 cam kit that came with single beehive springs and pushrods from TSP. The springs it offered were the comp cam 918's that were rated to .625" lif. But PAC racing springs could be substituted in place of Comp 918's. It never said anything about what the PAC's were rated to, and I didn't want to assume anything. So, I got the PAC's, are they good enough for the cam? The spec's are 232/234 .595/.598 112 LSA

    I used PRC Double Valve Springs for my Torquer V.2.

    Doesn't PAC make the 918's now?

    I run the 918's with a lot more cam than that, shifting at 7k, so you'll be good to go !

    I'm not sure, I just know you could choose between the Comp and PAC

    Also, along with this cam and a 100 dry shot, should I get some injectors? Between 30#-40#? What would be a good brand and where would a good place be to I get some from?

    Wet or Dry Shot ???
    Dry shot, I would upgrade, but a wet shot, it sprays it's own fuel.

    Thank you. So, I'm looking at the 42# injectors, is that too much? Also, will they just fit right into place where my OEM injectors are, with no adaptors?

    No, 42#'s are not too much. Thats the exact injector im running. They are a direct plug and play for the 98-02 Fbody with no extra adapters needed. You WILL need a tune badly after installing these.

    Um, so? Why buy the 39's, then buy adaptors? You come 40 bucks less then 42 #'s? Here what the basic cheap way of doing the table for 42#ers looks like in lbs.

    45.69800 45.69800 48.67426 48.67426 48.67426 48.67426 48.67426 48.67426 48.67426 48.67426 48.67426 48.67426 48.67426 48.67426 50.59643 50.59643 50.59643

    So now I'm all kinds of confused on the injectors. I was told by my tunner that 42's were a bit over kill, I dont know, I may just go a little less.

    01 T/A, how's it sound? I went with the 112 LSA for a little more chop

    42's will be great for you !!! I run 46lb'ers at 65% duty cycle or better with a 150 dry shot. Had 30lb'ers that ran 96% duty cycle...
