Carbureted LSX forum - opinions on my cam choice?
02-24-2012, 01:51 PM
I have an ISKY 234, 248... 600, 609 on a 108 in my stock bottom end ls1... stock pistons were fly cut to clear. 241 heads, Vic Jr intake both ported by a reputable local guy.(Killians Porting Service). The heads were ported in 2009, all I remember from the flow numbers is the intake was 308 @ .600. Holley street Hp 750 with mechanical secondaries. The motor is in a 98 s10 and I am running sanderson 1 5/8 shorties.
I was just wanted to get some opinions on my setup how you guys think the cam will perform?

Sounds like one of those warner robins boys to me. :D

Yes sir Warner Vegas boy all the way.

Sounds like a pretty good combo. What compression will you have? The cam sounds more suited to an L92 set up IMHO. Eric L

My question is , auto or stick?

the cam is a little big but I have plans of upgrading to a 408 bottom end and keeping everything else the same next summer.
Its an Th 350 with a tci ssf

the compression ratio is same as a stock ls1 car.

It dosent seem that big for a carburated car. Eric L

Why such a big split? Because of the small tube headers?

TCI super street fighter will probably stall a little low, just because low end torque is going to be a problem with your set-up. Upside is that tail-light S10 will probably hook with it, and when that LS monster gets in the power band it will make up for it. I like the set-up! shouild work good on a greasy friday night test and tune at the dollar.:secret2:

I actually got a good deal on the cam. Its an off the shelf cam, supposed to be ground for use with a Carb.
The tci converter should be OK for now. A friend of mine had it brand new in the box for a build he never finished so I don't have much in it either. The truck should be ready for the silver dollar soon. And your right slip and slide Friday nights will definetley put my suspension to the test.

Everything sounds good in the motor but the headers, otherwise, it should run great.

I paid 230 for the headers, but I really want some long tubes just haven't been able to fork out the 700 them. I will though soon as I can.
