    My cam is similar to the vindicator cam (mine is 240/244 .608/.615 on a 113 lsa) and I love it. The car has 799 heads, a Vig 3600 stall, 4.10's, and supporting bolt ons and I drive it everywhere. You'll need a good tune but you should have no issues (Frost tuned mine). Once I get my new tranny (slipping bad in third), I'll get some dyno numbers and times.

    I'm slipping because of the new power....I can DD the car fine, it's when I go WOT that it slips. I have 0 regrets with this cam and will definitely be installing one in my other car....it doesn't buck or surge like some larger cams do (this is mostly due to a great tune). Like I said, I can DD this car anywhere without issue. I left the 799 heads alone aside from some patriot extreme springs and have no issues whatsoever (even took the car to 7000 rpm once by accident). Before adding this cam, make sure you have all the supporting mods (full exhaust, ls6 intake or better, 36lb injectors, etc). I'm running ebay stainless headers with 1 3/4 primaries, 3" catted y, and Magnamouth exhaust. I'll try to get a video of the car tonight if I can get all the snow off of it.

    No flycutting needed on mine but you should always check just to be safe. Like I said, I even took it to 7k once by accident and it was ok (if it was close, the valve prob would have kissed the top of the piston at that point). I'm prob between 400-420 rwhp and maybe 385-400 rwtq. The car feels very strong and pulls hard which is what matters to me (that and track times). Once the new trans is in (after tax return), I'll have dyno numbers and times. Also thinking of switching to a fast 92/92 setup (the ls6 is probably holding me back a bit).
