Over on camaro5 site, just a heads up. Testing will take place tomorrow and through thursday.
Good points.I can understand this in a GXP....maybe.
But the work and money involved in doing a cam swap/DoD delete in a GT, I'd jump for more stick for another $250-300 give or take.
If this LS9 cam added 50hp I would maybe consider it.
I would think this would be a great cam if your considering a blower/turbo.
Just not enough BANG for the low buck.
I do all my own work. It just seems like a waste of time to me. These cars DO NOT need to be loosing any power below 4K. They are heavy bitches and need all they can get. Mine makes 500ft/lbs and it still could use more... The LS9 is a cheap cam but what about the tune, fluids etc..? Your going to pay for a tune the same as if you did a custom cam. So why waste your time and a saturday to loose power down low and make a measly 20hp up top when there is a dozen Cam choices out there that will destroy the LS9 cam? Man up and spend another couple hundered and get a bigger bang for your buck and dont use a cam designed for a blower on an N/A setup..Turbotank,
I completely understand your view. And this argument had been made before. May I ask, do you do all your own wrenching?
See my point of view for a second if you will. I for one love wrenching on cars. I am a complete gear head. I also am super cheap! If I can do all the wrenching, have a fun time doing it, and gain 20 hp for $100, doesn't that sound like a good deal? I don't mean to stir the pot. I see your point. I'm just showing you mine.
Hell, some guys spend a couple hundred doars on a intake and don't get 20hp out of it.....
