    just to let you know "higher stall" is not going to do shit for you... you need to stall match your cam... which by no means do i have ANY advice or know how on how to do that.. i just know that no matter what stall you pick... it wont matter unless you match it good ... have someone on here that knows what they are doing.. or rpm match one for your cam when you pick one

    what you want to do with that situation is find out where you cam starts making power and get a stall to match that at all costs

    ok i suppose i am getting a lil too unrealistic haha...ill definitely do the cam within the next few weeks though and slowly work on converter and gears...making sure to match everything respectably

    anyone have an estimate on difficulty or price of installation?

    cuz ur car will stall out too much.. i mean you can get away with not doing it.. but you reallllly have to know what to do... its safer to say you need it at same time..

    so now i am somewhat lost as to what i should do...i dont want to perform a task i will regret...like cam problems...is getting a converter first a better idea? somewhere around 3600 stall and match the cam up to it eventually?

    "TRak" - 231/234 .640/.590 112 LSA..good cam or still a little too much?...maybe i should settle for a little less intensity from the cam...maybe like a 230/224 .575/.563 111 LSA ?

    try and stay 112lsa or above... you go any other smaller lobe and your getting into chopsuey... the trak is slightly milder but by no means... mild... stick around a 228 @ 112 i think you will be happy with that.. and get a stall with it.. = perfection... btw check with zboner and see if he says if u need an ls6 pump and ls2 timing chain with that cam.. im really not sure what cam needs what in that range
