Default Thinking about f13 cam install

I have decided yhat i want to do a cam swap as my next modification on my 2002 camaro. I have looked and dont really know what i want. I have been looking at the f13. What i want to know is this an ok cam for a diily driver? I dont drive it everyday but i want something that is reliable. I want a lopey idle and decent hp gains. I know a good tuner that can tune it for me. What kind of gains can I expect from this cam with tsp long tubes, ory,air lid and 373 gears? Any Ideas?

I peak'd at 407hp @6400 and 370tq @4800 with the f11 cam. Used 91 octane amd speed density tune. Supporting mods were fast 90/90, unported 243 and kooks 1 3/4. So your potential is there my friend. Have fun. Oh yeah mine is a m6 w/ 3.42.

I used to run that cam. It works fine for a daily driver. Great lowend and awesome midrange.

I ran the F11 and make over 400rwhp. Plenty of friends ran and run the F13 and they all run great. I have a custom grind from Futral now but any of the F series cams will accomplish a specific goal one of trying to reach.

I loved the f13 cam when I had it. One of the lobes was wiped so I ended up replacing it with a torquer v3 and it picked up 18rwhp over the f13 on my a4 car, I was pretty shocked.

Not bad at all, I couldnt tell a difference between the f13 and the v3. The car is currently my only car and I drive it everyday and I also use the a/c pretty frequently. It never tries to cut out on me unless I crank the a/c within seconds of starting it when the engine is cold.
