Generation III Internal Engine - Thinking of a good cam for my new 6.0 that I could actually use later?
05-07-2012, 02:05 PM
Alright.. so I was thinking originally of taking my old EPS cam out of my LS1 and putting it in my LQ9 that I've bought, with my old 243 heads too.
But then I started thinking I'd rather have a cam that's a bit bigger... but I don't feel like waiting 6 months for an EPS custom cam again.
Are there any off the shelf ones I could go for? I want something that can work with bigger valve heads down the road.
My mods list is below:
FAST 78 INTAKE
Right now I'm making 390 to the wheels with the EPS cam and LS6 intake.
I'm hoping a cam change, some more cubes, and the fast will push me to 410??
Suggestions on a cam?

Trick Flow or Comp cams 238/242 .595/.595 112lsa
I had this cam in my 346 with a 4,000 stall and loved it, even though it was on the big side for stock cubes, but then dropped it in my 408 and it was on the small side....in a 6.0 it should be just about right

You know what would be really cool.. if I could reuse my springs that I currently have.
That would mean lift should probably not exceed .6 by too much. I know that kind of rules out of some of your guys options.
What would be even cooler would be if I could use my pushrods too.. but I won't push my luck.

At the time I put the 238/242 cam in mine I did have my heads milled
.020". But I was running 7.400" pushrods....but, always measure :)

Take a look at the TSP 233/239, and the Torquer V2 (232/234), I'd go with the 111 lsa.
Both these cams(XER lobes) will allow you to use your current valve springs.

I have a TSP 233/239 with 5k miles on it for sale for $250. I mainly drag race and for me it was a bit on the small side.
