TSP 229/236 cam Dyno'd

Just got my car back after getting a tsp 229/236 112 lsa cam. Also got a tap underdrive pully kit. Dyno tuned at newtech performance. Got 452 hp / 422 tq. I told em to keep the tune safe as this is my daily driver. It's pretty loud with muffler deletes and long tubes, but I'm real happy with the sound. I don't even wanna keep it in gear anymore, I just wanna idle down the street lol. Already ordered some magnaflow bullet mufflers to help quiet it down some. I'll post better videos and before/after once I install the bullets. Thanks to camaro5 for all the help as I researched my setup.

-When I'm driving 40 and I let off the gas and put it in neutral, the car revs up 1,600 rpm's or so then drops to idle (900). Is this normal?

-Getting a little bucking/surging in 1st gear sometimes around 1100 rpm's in a parking lot, normal with a cam?

That's a healthy cam. You'll get a bit of low speed bucking.

'Sounds normal to me, based on my experience. It takes some getting used to but you'll love it (I can tell already).

cam are suppose to bounce around a little. mine doesn't get that high though for most of the time. it will bounce around 1k then settle down. but not every tune and cam is the same.

give it some time & make some notes, you can give your notes to the tuner & I bet he can help that 1600 to 900rpm surges!

No, needs more tuning work.

At very low RPM in first gear, a minor surge could be in the tune, and it actually could also be in your cold air intake...some intakes cause a little bit of air turbulence around the MAF sensor, which results in a buck...sometimes even with the stock cam.

It may be possible to make it a bit better with tuning, but 1100 RPM might never go away.

Yep. I had that exact same problem with my new era intake so I switched to a CAI --problem solved.

Well I talked to my tuner and he said that revving up to upper 1k rpm's is something to avoid the car turning off but it's set too high or something. I dunno, gonna get it cleaned up in a few days. Is it safe to drive around with that. I assume it's not a big deal.

I'm real happy with this cam and love the sound!

need to get some tuning work!!! A good tuner will be able to tune the biggest cam with little to zero surging...takes time and lots of expierence but can be done!
