Need help with a cam spec

Looking to do a cam swap. Can anyone recommend a good cam spec? Of course I want to max my hp but I am more into the sound! I want it very lumpy and old school sounding. I currently have ram air induction, 4:11 gears, most of the rear suspension upgrades and corsa cat back exhaust. I plan on doing the headers and port the heads at the same time as the cam. I have heard that the cam manufacture can make a difference in the sound and I only want to do the job once! All recommendations appreciated.

I would contact Ted at Jannetty Racing. They have several cam packages available: http://jreperformanceparts.com/gm/20...s.html?cat=276

I love my TSP 231/236. Jannetty 470rwhp, TSP and the G6X3 are all great choices. You can listen to the 231/236 in my build thread in the sig.

You're right in Rochester, home of New Era Performance so just ring them up and have them get you exactly what you need.

Just FYI,

A guy on LS1 tech selected the same cam with LS3 heads. With no milling he cam out with .018" intake PVT and no issue with the exhaust. Look into that just to be safe bro.

TSP 231 236 here. Made 454 RWHP and sounds nasty. the LG G6X3 is wicked too. . My car sounds like an old school 1st gen camaro. I love it

Give us a call & we can get you lots of data on camshaft choices. You can also checkout our website, it gives detailed engine & chassis dyno data so you can compare our camshafts. We'd love the opportunity to discuss your camshaft selection with you, we're the largest LS camshaft retailer in the country & spend thousands of hours engine dyno testing & developing our packages.

Not too much bigger. The 231/236 has a bit better street manners though.
