The shake is awesome! When Im sitting at a light, I can watch both of my legs swing back and forth because the car is moving so violently. Even my wife that is completely naive about changes in car details, can physically see the car shaking from the outside. You wont regret it!

There is nothing as sweet as the idle of a big cammed big cube engine. That's old school muscle, before supercharging became the rage.

After I installed my JRE470 cam, my 7 year old son said that the car shaking was so cool. He said how come Mom's car doesn't shake like that

Same cam as the rough idle blower cam. I have it and love it. I am lacking for a local and reputable dyno. Probably a bit less for rear world dyno, but I can only get 91 octane and I'm at 4700 feet.

When I'm at a red light, I get two types of looks. There's the "Holy crap he's cammed" look and the "WTF is wrong with his car" look. I love 'em both!

Red lights are my favorite. everyone always looks when I roll up and I get comments and thumbs up all the time. I love it when guys on harleys tell me how badass my car sounds and I get similiar comments from the saggy pants and hat on sideways crowd all the way up to old men, so that tells me I made the right decision. Still makes me smile every time I start it up and that's all that matters to me. I love my car.

Where you at in AZ? Look into AZ dyno chip. I had a car dyno'd there a couple years ago and they did a great job. Its in Chandler.

I'm down in Sierra Vista so its quite a road trip just to get on the dyno. There is a local guy with a portable dyno that I might try some day. Data logging says its running great so I'm in no rush.

Just cam, headers and CAI. Setup is ready for a supercharger, but I haven't made the leap yet.

The amount of "shake" can be adjusted with tuning.

I had a fairly aggressive cam in my 05 GTO with considerable cam shake. At my request, my tuner made my GTO idle extremely close to stock. People couldn't even tell my car was cammed (even the dealership couldn't tell it was cammed when I brought it in for service).

Gotroost, where did you get your work done? I'm bringing my car down to AZ this winter and want to do headers, intake, cam and tune from JRE as well. I need a reputable shop to do the work. Please let me know who did yours and if you were happy.

There's no tuning out the lope in my cam unless you have it idle at 1200rpm

I avoid 900 to 1100 rpm if I can as it is still choppy. Other than that it hauls ass down low and top end is absolutely mean. Newest thing I have done is 1 piece driveshaft and that also made a world of difference.

yup. i went in for a retune to clean up the tune. they lowered my idle little, made drivability much better. and make it shake less at idle. but it still sounded cammed at idle.

Honestly why spend the money on a large overlap, high lift and a low LSA camshaft and have it idle like a stock vehicle? Whats the purpose? 416 stroker + mid .600 lift and a 112LSA with 16 deg of overlap.. I would not want to waste all that money to sound like a boring stocker.
