drivability and gains have a lot to do with who is tuning it.

With a good tuner I would expect for that cam to run strong, and your car will definitely sound cammed...

Speed Inc out of Schaumburg, IL?

If so, could you do a little review of how your experience/install went? I'm going to cam my GT soon and can't decide on wether to go w/ a Stage 1 from Livernois or get a cam spec'd from Pat G/Rick Crawford and have Speed Inc, Modern Muscle, Straightline Performance or my uncle in his garage do the install.

Thanks

Awesome thanks

Did they spec the cam for you?

Where do you live? I'd like to meet up sometime so I can check out your car and maybe go for a ride and see how the stall is.

Good to know, Whats everyone's best guess at the WHP? Im hoping around 450+
How much difference would ported intake, heads, TB make? if I decided to do it down the road?

Should be a decently drivable cam. Crunching the numbers, it has 6.5 degrees of overlap, so it will definitely have a choppy idle.

However, a good tuner can tune a 110 LSA cam to not lope at idle. So your tuner should be able to tune this cam to drive nicely with that converter. You should have no surging when cruising (converter locked.)

I got a 230/242 114 LSA with no stall. I was able to get it smooth idling down to about 750rpm. Off the cam it has a little more power than stock with headers/ cai but at about 3k, hold on...it's like a shot of nitrous. Lot of people say it's too big without a stall. It did buck a lot in the beginning but like i said i was able to tune the bucking and smell out of it. It still has plenty of vacuum for the brakes, and the idle definitely makes a lot of people think twice.

I have my supersports, and then the stock wheels with some ultra high performance tires (cant remember the name, kind of off brand but its what came on them)
Im not sure which to run, the supersports are better grip and a 275 tire (20") and the stocks arent as grippy on a 245 tire (19")

Thats a LOT of cam to run without a stall, but it sounds like you've got it dialed in pretty good.

Neither one of those sets of tires is going to be enough for your new setup. Better plan on getting some drag radials.
