idle chop

Just curious as to the most choppy idle...
tsp 231/236
Vengence stage 3
Lethal stage 3

all are similar spec

Which one is meaner?

It's a toss up between the lethal stage 3 and the 231/236 cam! I have he tsp 236 cam and I vibrate windows when I park at places. Just saying!! Tsp is also coming out with a new bigger badder cam, it also has to do with the way it's installed and tuned as well!! Good luck, but is it the sound or performance you are looking for? If you can get in touch with Darin Morgan he has a way with custom grinds to match you set up that hit and perform!! He will be porting my heads next year!!!

Vengence & Lethal will definitely give more chop than TSP... Depends a bit on tuning too..

Here's a list of a few other good ones...

Why not consider the g6x3 if you want to go all out?

On a Mustang dyno 449rwhp, 459rwtq. Convert to a Dynojet, 510/520 ish. Love the cam..... insane powerband above 3000rpm. Getting 3" Dynomax VT's installed soon. I already blew the baffles loose in both stock mufflers

Yes, mild cams, stage 1, or most cams with low lifts have smooth idles.

I would have definitely chosen this one if they would have given me the specs... I like to know exactly what I have. I bet the specs on this one were very close to the LG as I know the HP gains were.

Sounds just as nasty as well..

I think my cam sounds pretty choppy and put down some really good numbers as well. Im at 442 rwhp 416 torque on a mustang dyno as well so i would be right at the 500 mark on a dyno jet. here is the video

yep its called stock cam, they come with the engine. In all seriousness you want a stock cam idle like, there are aftermarket cams that will retain a stock idle but the whole point of a cam in my opinion is making the car sound mean!!!and kick arse power

here is Lethal Racing's Night Fury cam. its dyno proven that it makes big power on the dyno when tuned properly. between 470-495 rwhp with headers on LS3's. you can let it idle in a parking lot in 1st gear and no bucking!



feel the lope!


230/242 113 6xx/6xx

Stage 1 cams have a softer idle. But less power made.

There are many cams that will offer those numbers if tuned right.

i don't blame you. that's bs that a shop wont tell you what they are putting in your car...

If you want a great cam that doesn't sacrifice low and mid range check out the tsp 229/236 cam. The 231/236 has a little more hp up top but the 229/236 has a better torque curve and believe me it drives great. You can also have either cam cut from a 111 to a 114 las I think.
