Generation III Internal Engine - help me pick a cam!

im looking to cam my 01 formula that i daily drive.
i plan on doing cam/springs/converter. dont want to get too radical with the converter due to it being my daily.
i dotn want to pull the heads. so something that requires fly cutting is a no go.
id love something that sounds like it barely runs! lol

My advice is get with Pat G. He does custom cams and is great at it. I ran two of his customs after cams from top sponsors and his gained over thers. To gain the most and get what you want,thats what i would do. Good luck to ya.

Something around a 228 duration, .595 lift with a tight, maybe 111-112 lsa would get you there plus a 3,600 stall....don't be afraid of a high stall, I daily drove mine with a 4,000 50+ miles a day

TSP228R with a 110, run the idle low enough and it WILL barely run

you want something with a narrow LSA,like mentioned above a 228r at 110* lsa is a nice choice .

I had a 236, 240 610, 612 111, made 405 rwhp. I never did gears so slow speeds it did not drive that well.
I now have a 230, 238 600, 600 113. It drives near stock and most likely will make more power, I also have cnc ported heads.
I originally was going to go with a Pat G cam, he reccommneded the same exact specs that AI sent me.

NICE! Still haven't put mine on the dyno (scraping the cash together) but that time is rapidly approaching.
My cam is plenty driveable with a 110; idles rough enough at 800 that you know it is there, but not so bad that it shakes the car apart.
Keep in mind that if you keep the lift at .600 or less you can run a beehive spring, which is considerably cheaper than doubles

Mine will be back on the dyno, not sure what it will do with crap headers and BBK intake but hopefully 430 rwhp
