Default Cam help

I'm doing a ls swap in my c10 and looking at cams.Ive got a 2004 lq4 and looking for 4l80e. The last NA 6.0 I put a texas speed v2 in and it pulled and sounded good but was looking for something that sounds more aggressive if possible without killing power down low or the drive ability.The motor is stock I'm going to get the heads worked and maybe shaved some for comp.It will have a stall and 411 gears.I called texas speed and they said that the torquer v4 or the tusmie v2 would be good. What do you guys think I'd like it to sound pretty mean and run good.would one of these cams be good or just stick with the v2 like I had before or get a custom grind from someone?Thanks for any suggestions.

Beautiful Truck! If you're open for suggestions, we'd like to throw our Summit Pro LS Truck Stage 3 and 4 into the mix. The Stage 3 Truck (SUM-8713) is a 222/231 112 + 5 .545/.545. Intake opening is 4 btdc for a strong idle and closes at 38 abdc for killer midrange and torque. The Stage 4 Truck (SUM-8714) ups the ante by a few degrees at 226/230 112 + 4. Intake opening is a degree earlier, but we extend the exhaust closing to 41 abdc to extend the rev range and make more power up top. Both have excellent lobes and will pull hard past 6k with inexpensive LS6 valve springs.

Depending on where it's advanced, a 111 lobe separation Tsunami opens the intake valve around 8 btdc. That's going to make it lope harder than our Stage 4. It's closing point is around 46 abdc which is why your low end torque and mid-range aren't quite where you want them.

If you're looking for more driveability, you could drop the idle down a bit with the SUM-8714 Stage 4 and it will still make more low and mid range power. It also allows you to mill the heads a full .030 for more compression. Compression will make it stronger everywhere.

Another option if you're looking for a "Tsunami-like" idle with more bottom end is our Cca-SUMLSGT102 cam. It's not one of our Pro LS cams, but it's made for us by Comp. It's specs are 230/234 111 + 3 and .600 lift. I/O 7 ( Strong idle), I/C 43 (more torque), E/O 53, E/C 3. It sounds a bit closer to what you're looking for if you liked the V2.

K I'll check them out I definitely want it to sound at the least like the torquer v2 I had did.I know it's not all about sound but I do want it to have a healthy sound.I'll see if I can find some video clips of you pro series cam.

I wasn't able to find vids for you on that particular cam but searching for 230/234 cam did net some good results
