    looking at 390 to 420 rwhp with the cam and those mods and the right tuner. Don't forget to get matching valve springs and hardened pushrods when you do the swap. A high volume Ported and shimmed LS6 oil pump, and new double roller or LS2 timeing chain and gears wouldn't be a bad idea either.

    A4 you are looking at a lot less than 400... m6 you could see 400.... a4 would be more like 350-360ish..

    Hey I have an M6, people on here estimated with my mods plus my LS6 cam that I have now that I have around 370-380RWHP. I have the LS6 Ported Oil pump as well as the LS2 Timing chain. I just didn't mention it lol I also would def get springs and new push rods as well.

    Will this cam be too agressive for a daily driver?

    in all honesty.... i would suggest an ms3... i love TSP cams, especially their ms3 and ms4..
    only reason i say that is because you dont have an intake to support the ms4, and you could use better heads.. ms3 would be about perfect.. i like to go fast..

    Depends on the drivetrain for HP. I never really concern myself with dyno numbers....


    That cam has a LOT of lift for a daily driven car. I would be replacing the valvesprings every 18K miles with it.

    i care nothing for dyno numbers... mine arent that impressive... my car shines at the track..

    yes it does.. but ms3 with dual springs and you should be ok for a while.. i have put about 10-11k on mine with the ms4... i drive hard...
