3 new cams from lunati for ls3!

So after my months of beating my head into the ground on a cam for my car, I finally found the one! Lunati just came out with 3 grinds made just for ls3 heads, they are not on the web site yet but are available. They have basicly 3 stages and I am going with the middle one.

218/228 @05 .549/.566 112lsa 108icl RPM range 1800-6400

This cam is way off from the normal cams being run that I see, but I am pumped to try! Will be running this on the stock ls3 springs as well. Tech told me this cam will have a some what lopy idle and make allot of mid range power with a good boost in top end. I was going to run there 222/228 and was informed by tech that cam is ment more for an ls2 and would not run as good. I am hopping for about 450hp at the wheels with a sick torque curve with this little cam . Hopfully next month the weather will start to break and its going in, cant wait

Good Luck!!! I went for a small cam as well, I got 442/417 to the wheels with the power right off idle.

I love Lunati, I have tried a ton of cams, and I like them the best. Well in old school cars. Not to sure about the LS3, But now you have me wanting to do a LS3 conversion just to have another lunati cam.

Yes I trust lunati, they did me good in my olds! I have been reading allot of threads were guys were trying to run bigger cams with a small split and not getting the performance they expected. 2 guys ran 218/226 cams and said they out performed the 226/232 cam all the way till 6000rms. So I think lunati has done some home work on this!

Not sure on the specs as I really don't claim to have any knowledge on camshaft specifications but I am running a Ed Curtis Lunati custom grind and I am plenty happy with it. It may not pull the peak numbers others are seeing with the larger grinds but I will say if drives better than stock has a nice lope and great below peak curve.

I would suggest you upgrade the springs.
