LLSR from Cam Motion 242*/250* LSA Specced by Kip, or
Speedtigger. ( I would lean toward 112*+3* )
With your bottom end you can peak @~ 7000 and shift
~7500.

What do you do with the car? Drag?. Roll racing in Mexico? Road course? Drifting? Dyno Queen? Beat it like you stole it?

How much rear gear and how tall of a tire?

Do you care if it bucks at low RPM like in parking lots or slow traffic?

The Titan King is an excellent choice for what you are doing. It is 236 intake duration, 244 exhaust duration with 112 degree lobe separation angle on a 109 degree intake centerline. It has .621" intake lift. The Titan King was made for max effort stock bottom end street cars.

Since you have 11.8:1 compression and good pistons with valve reliefs, for your combination I could do a custom camshaft of 239 degrees intake duration, 247 degrees exhaust duration on a 110.5 intake centerline on a 107.5 degree intake centerline. If you have stock rockers, I would typically make this camshaft with .621" intake lift, but if you have the knowledge to make sure your rockers arms are set up perfectly correct, I can make it for you with .646" lift.

Custom camshafts are no extra cost.

If you have any other questions or are ready to order, just give me a call. My extension is 7004

The custom cam sounds good.

I have after market rockers and don't have a problem adjusting them.

What would the RPM range be on this cam?

The upper RPM range will be more limited by the FAST long runner intake manifold than the camshaft. I would suspect it will like to be shifted between 6700 to 7000 RPM.

Since you have aftermarket rocker arms, it opens up some options to consider. You could run even more lift to make more power if you choose to do so. It just increases the cost of the necessary valve springs. For example, we sell the Brian Tooley Racing springs that are good to .660" of lift with titanium retainers for $299.00. We sell the PAC 1208x springs capable of .750 lift for $399.00. There is also the option of going with one of our LLR low lash street solid roller camshafts. Our customers report that these LLR solid roller street cams seldom need adjustment and have been producing outstanding results.

I personally have the Cam Motions Titan 5 Cam in my WS6 and I have nothing but great things to say about it. In comparison to my MS3 cam in my SS it has greater performance and had better manners in my opinion. 112 LSA
