There are thousands of options. I would get one spec'd out for what you want. There is no one best blower cam. What you want out of the cam determines what you need. How bad of idle do you care about? Surging? Rev limit? Motor size? Compression? Fuel? Fuel?

Get one Custom'd to you specifically in my opinion. None of those listed are bad options, I just think you getting one tailored to exactly what you want is a better option since they run about the same price....

FSP can spec a cam to your liking. PM me or Matt@FSP.

If you just want super aggressive and the most power then you can probably go a lot more extreme than any of those cams.

Assume this is a 6-speed car as you didn't mention a stall, but didn't see an upgraded clutch listed in mods?

I agree. Money well spent to have a cam spec'd for your car. Pat did mine and I'm very happy with the results.

And with the OP being in DE, I think there is even a good shop out there that does badass LSX work. Hmmm, who could that be.

Seriously, just call Fran@RPM and he can spec you a cam.

i went with the texas speed blower cam knowing there was no PTV clearance issues and theyre good guys. put a lot of development into the cam. its right in the middle. little choppy idle, decent street driving manners and lots of power from just under 2k and up in any gear/speed! still havent dyno tuned yet, just efilive and im very happy. but i would get one specd if you got a bit of extra cash.

Custom grinds are really not much more..Most pay $350-400 for an off the shelf grind (which are completely fine and proven), a custom grind tailored to your goals and driveability needs run about $400-450, some even cheaper depending on the shop.

East Texas Muscle Cars stg 2 blower cam. They average 475 rwhp on a m6 ls3. No surging or bucking at 1000 rpm. Great DD cam IMHO

The "best" blower cam is the one that gives you a great bump in power, yet still gives the guy tuning your car a good shot at getting it perfect. A 238/250 112lsa will yield you a bunch of power at 10psi. A 222/234 116lsa might not give you a dyno graph equal to the bigger cam at 10psi, but it will give you as much if you bump the boost up just a little. Manners can be stock type perfect with the smaller cam. If your "tuner" tells you he can get you stock type manners with a big wampum blower cam, run away and find you another guy to tune your car....and find you a guy that can spec you a very tunable cam. There's no sane reason to run a huge blower cam on the street.

You can get any Comp Cams custom grind delivered to your door for 375 bucks.
