    well it depends on what you want to do. is it a dd or track car? if you want that much horsepower ur gonna need alot more than a cam. also since ur an auto ur gonna need a stall. i have m6 so dont know much about that. i would say if you want that much hp. go with cam, heads, headers, intake and 100 shot. i just got done with my h/c/i swap. prc stage 2.5 heads, tsp 228r cam, pacesetter lt's ory, bbk intake, 85mm tb, and gonna run a 75 shot dry. i should be somewhere around 440 w/o spray and around 510 with not sure yet still have to get it on the dyno.

    I have the TrickFlow setup. Its has great drivability and pleanty of power. Just so you know though, the 515HP rating is to the flywheel, not the rear wheels. Check out my sig, with all the mods I have + the 515 TF package, I am only at 440 RWHP. The only thing I am lacking is long tubes which are sitting in my garage. But, I do have edlebrock shorties, which is better than manifolds. Even when I get the kooks installed and the car retuned, I still wont be anywhere the numbers you are looking for. To get the numbers you are looking for at the rear wheels, you will need a S/C!

    OP, you have to understand, there is no "best cam" out there...

    the best cam that would work for you is to know exactly what goal it is you are trying to achieve. what are your current mods, what are your possible future mods?

    once you have that figured out, then you can research what cam is the best for your application and goals, that when combined with all the other mods you have or plan to do, best compliment everything as a whole...

    Agreed ...on the quote "there is no best cam"

    My car is a 1999 Z28 vert, LS1 , mildly ported 241's,milled .080, comp 918 springs , comp push rods ,
    vindicator cam ground on 112 center, degreed 2deg advanced,LS6 intake, ported stock TB, 28lb injectors, smooth below,stock mass air, ported and polished' free air mod smooth lid, TB bypass mod,pistons fly cut for valve clearance.
    arp rod and head bolts, long tubes ,no cats, 160deg thermo, yank 3600, 4.10 gears, custom tuned with HP Tuners. 150 shot wet kit.

    You have it backwards.

    Dynojet reads higher

    Mustang reads lower.

    I believe its becuase Dynojet doesnt take into considers the wieght of car. The dino itself is not wieght bearing.

    But the Dynojet reads higher.

    I agree on the weight and load conditions, but I should have said most of dyno jet readings are less likely to be fudged on, on the mustang dyno I have seen tuners adjust the weight , to make it seem like they made more horsepower by making the cars seem weight less on the dyno.

    Here is the BEST IDEA PERIOD.

    Call Cam Motion and get a CUSTOM Grond cam to match YOUR Exact needs not a off the shelf universal grind.

    And do yourself the biggest favor. . . . . . . . . . Be honest with ALL your answers to there ?'s.

    OT: What's the difference between the mustang dyno and dynojet? Are they brand names, or just different types?

    This is what my local dyno guy told me...

    A MustangDyno has an added weight to the roller where as the dynojet is just the weight of the roller itself. HE implied that the mustang dyno will represent a more real world number due to the fact that when you really race you push the weight of the car. Where as a dynojet you are just dealing with the weight of the roller.
