It is so hard to tell the difference between all these cams without getting the detailed specs for the ramps, to tell side by side how much lift at what point in the rotation, They are all so close, when just looking at max lift/duration/LSA

Does anyone know where I can get his information?

You can have two cams with same max lift and similar duration behave differently, I would not say extremely differently, but I would say materially differently.

When I got my Crower for my other car, they went over the details with me on the phone and we matched my Cam and the Ramps, and everything exactly to my Dart Heads, their intake runner size, flow numbers, engine, bore to stroke ratio, everything I feel determines the powerband and resulting performance. I credit that due diligence for above average performance and hp/$ that my other motor, a 383, makes in my 79 Camaro.
My $3,800 383 w/Iron Heads, cast steel crank, factory rods, w/hydraulic flat tappet at 3680 lbs. w/driver and small headers, stock ignition, 3.42 gears ran [email protected] when I first dropped it in back in 1998 or 99.

Looking forward to seeing some results of these cams with and without their heads.

Back from the dead but on topic. I finally got my car running and I will be getting it tuned shorty. I have the largest of the 3 grinds. RX7. stock LS6 heads and intake. Pulley. 1 3/4 long tube headers. Anyone care to guess what kind of power it will make?

Given the relatively low lift numbers compared to the duration, I would say that the lobes are not very aggressive. However, I do not know that for a fact.

Although I am not at liberty to disclose who grinds those cams, I will tell you it is major camshaft grinder out of Tenn. (not Comp) so the quality is good. The camcard is a dead giveaway since theirs is unique . I know the lobes are not nearly as aggressive as the xer's. When the engineers at TFS were developing the cams they wanted camshaft's that made good power with no reliability (valvespring) or valve float issues that could lead to warranty problems

I am very pleased. Made some pulls. Cleaned up the idle. Realized that my little air filter was too small and was creating a restriction in the MAF. Open headers.

After the tuning the pulls settled in the 405-408HP range with torque around 400.

I am pretty happy.

Those seem like good numbers! Did you use the stage 3? How does the cam idle? Im thinking about a cam package from texas speed, but this cam is 120 dollars cheaper.

A very helpful person at TEA highly recommended the trick flow cams. Very, very smart guy. He told me don't beat myself up over a few Hp, that there is not one "magical" cam thats gonna make 50hp over everybody elses. If you pretty much know what area you want your cam to be, they will all be pretty close. Then he let me know I'm letting about 45hp go due to LQ4 pistons and 70cc heads. Getting back to the topic, they liked the TF camshafts for the buck.

Thinking about putting this cam in my stock lq4. The TFS-30602003 is the same as Jegs 200582. To those who are running this cam, what gears and stall are you running with it?
