Default So I bought my cam today!!

Sup guys, I finally decided on my cam today. I bought a Thunder Thunder Racing TRex cam lol, I bought pacesetter headers, 4.10 gears, LS7 Clutch kit, Patriot extreme dual valve springs, comp cams 7.400 pushrods, gm cam swap gaskets, few other supporting mods to make life easier. I cant WAIT! No the car is not a daily driver lol.

Nice choice. There was a heads/cam (trex cam) dyno sheet that was a around 500 rwhp. It had afr heads and supporting mods. Good luck.

Get an electric cutout so you can set off car alarms when you idle around the parking lot at work. That ought to get their blood pumping. T-REXs hate car alarms!
