    Most 'off the shelf' cams from LSx shops are on the XE-R lobes.
    Fairly aggressive lobes from COMP. But, they also allow for a touch larger cam without flycutting.

    228 will be an awesome street mannered cam. That is what I would get for a DD beast. I just dont usually agree with these monster cams. Trex, MS3-4, torquer etc.

    Peak numbers dont mean shit on a street driven car. You gotta ask yourself what rpm range your car sees, then get a cam for that range.

    the 228 is a great cam but since my car is an A4 with the stock stall im a bit worried because this is my DD car.

    The stall will hold the performance back a bit, but it will run great.

    a 228 is only 4 degrees bigger than the 224 so its not that big of a difference.
    i have a 224 on xer lobes and all is good.

    i would stall the car before camming it. much better performance gain from the stall.
