Default TSP 233/239 vs TSP Torquer Rev2

I've been looking at two TSP cams:
TSP 233/239 .598"/.603" 113 LSA Camshaft
TSP Torquer Rev 2 232/234 .595"/.598" 112+2 LSA Camshaft

Seems to me like they'd produce similar numbers, but the Torquer R2 would make more midrange power. Which one would be better with PRC 2.5s and a SSF 3500 for a street car?

I have been reading on these 2 cams as well over the last couple of days. Planning on getting the H/C package from TSP, as I'm sure you are too. I think with either of these two cams you really can't go wrong. I'm more leaning towards the T2 (232/234) cam myself.
Sorry I'm no help though..

Im having the same dilema right now with the sale they have going on....will the 233/239 with with your typical milled heads or would the T2 be better for heads in the future.

i talked to jason today about the torquer II and the prc 2.5's - i aked what it would take for an 11.1:1 CR with the graphite head gaskets - he said that would require .015 to be milled off the heads but he wouldn't recommend more than .010 milling for P to V clearance with the Torquer II - i'd imagine that margin would narrow even more with the 239 cam

With the 62cc combustion chamber, the PRC 2.5s with the graphite gasket give about a 10.8:1 CR. Still pretty solid. I'm thinking the T2 and the PRC 2.5s would be a pretty nice combo for the street, considering the Torquer 2 has only 9 degrees of overlap at .050".

Jason told me that the PRC 2.5 5.3's could not be milled at all with the TSP 233/239 .600/.605 Rev2 camshaft..

233/239 is great from 4000-6500. That's the only one that I have tried.
Read the mods in my sig. Heads and compression. It's a lot of cam for a driver.

Here's a crazy idea:
Spend $200 to flycut, so you can run whatever compression you want.

What's the potential issue that would keep you from daily driving that cam? I don't get what the big deal is with daily driving it.

I went with the Torquer 2 after looking at the various cams. I wanted a slightly lower rpm band and the Torquer fit the bill.
We'll see how it compares to MS3 and MS4 (on the street) somtime soon

I drive daily with PRC Ls6 heads and a 233/239, 113 LSA. I like it. I think it comes down to preference. Good luck with your decision.
