Default ASA Cam Questions

So Iíve came across a great deal on an Asa cam stock GM low lift. Iíve seen the dynoís of the flat torque curve and Iíve researched it a lot. Iím still hesitant to use it. Going in an 02 Escalade LQ9 with 243 heads and 1 7/8 long tubes to true 3Ē duals. I havenít gotten a stall yet until I plan to run it or not. Was going to use a 216/224 and tb stall but then came across the ASA. Will this can be great for 2800+ stall in this truck or even a 3500 stall or is it too much cam?

I think for a heavy vehicle like the Escalade, the ASA cam will be too much. It was designed for racing in much lighter cars where low end is not important. In your case you will have a very soggy bottom end. It will be no fun to drive under 2500 RPM where most street driving takes place.

Yea my biggest worry was just around town driving. I know when I get on it the stall will take care of it I just don’t want a 3k stall and it still try to push thru the brakes at stops. I know most of that is in the tune I might just switch to the hot cam/btr stage 3/ Vinci trucker.

Definitely not right at all for a heavy truck.
Stay much lower.
The tsp stage 3 high lift would be a great option and run a much better spring.
569 for cam springs and pushrods. great sound and great bump in power.
