    You really need to give more information - transmission is just a starting point.

    Is this a daily driver, weekend playtoy, track car thats trailered?

    If its a daily, how important is drivability. Smaller cams are much easier to tune and live with, but they give up power that a bigger cam can provide.

    Choosing a cam is all about compromise. Anyone would need to know what you are doing to recommend the right cam.

    Something in the 230/236 range would be good. 231/239, 235/240. Around 600 lift 112-114 LSA. These are not too big, but big enough. Still streetable if need be.

    i have a MTI X1 cam 230/227, .591/.571 lift with 112 LSA. I drive an auto and this cam is perfect for DD and track.

    I guess it depends on what your baseline was and other mods you have. I got lucky and dynoed 323RWHP with cat-back only.

    I plan on going with the tps torquer. Would that one be good for nitro, being a split duration?
