    I am running a 230-236 dur. 580-590 lift on a 114 LSA. I chose mine because I was willing to sacrifice some driveability for a larger cam and the cam was ground the way it was because I wanted a cam that would do well with my bottle.

    vinci 099

    DUR @ .004" 294* / 302*
    DUR @ .050" 232*/ 240*
    LIFT .551/.551
    OVERLAP 64*
    LSA 117*

    i chose it because it fits my needs. big enough for my 408 without the tuning hassles associated with close LSA. i may sacrifice a little peak power, but i'll get a longer rpm range of usage.

    I run a MS4 cam. But I can't recommend anything for you because you need your Signature filled out even if your stock so we can see how your cars setup.

    What kind of gas mileage are you guys getting. I want to get a cam down the road but as this is my daily driver I don't want to go to extreme. I have heard that 224/224 is a good starter? I want to run nitrous down the road but don't want my cam to only work well while on the spray. My car is stock now minus the y-pipe dumped over the rear axle, and the free ram air mod.

    Those numbers look nice, I would be on stock LS6 Intake and stock heads... so I doubt I would be anywhere near those numbers. Did gas mileage drop significantly?

    I am running the Vinci 056, 216/224 0.551/0.551 115 LSA. Nice sleeper cam, idles good and isn't a bear in traffic. Nice flat power curve. I would have liked a cam with more lope to it just because I love the sound, but this little cam has met my needs thus far. I was also trying not to go too wild so my wife would still drive the car.
