Looking for an aggresive cam setup thats just under the G6X3

Hey guys!
I have been bouncing around the idea of going with the G6X3 cam but I kinda didnít want to run the biggest badest cam out there. This car will NOT be a daily driver once the cam install is done.

Iím pretty set on going through a local tuner here in socal, because i like to be close to mine. So I will probably go with either a custom grind or bring a kit to him.

So I was wondering what cam specs/cam kits you would recommend for a stage just under the G6X3, I know LG doesnít release specs on their cams so it might be hard to give me actual specs.

So far the only cam I think that falls in that category just under the G6X3 in power level is the Vengeance stage lll cam (231/243 .614/.6.24, 115+3) Iím assuming this because it makes just a little less in power then the G6X3. ANY OTHERS?

So any recommendation on cams that are still aggressive but not the biggest and badest welcome!! Thanks guys! (specís preferred)

I would call cartek, they have the badest stock cube N/A 6 speed out there! I am shure they can get you what you want, biggest does not mean fastest, the hole thing has to work together or its just a over cammed pig!

You should put the Night fury cam from Lethal Racing in your list, It sounds badass and makes good power too!

The cam in that car is likely even bigger than the g6x3.

According to them they had to fly cut. Which is not required on the g6x3.

From the looks of it so far the g6x3 and carteks large cammed cars are indeed the fastest on the track. None of the smaller cammed cars have even came close so far.

One will run into problems with a large cam if they dont run enough compression...this will make them even lazier down low. LG recommends in the neighborhood of 11.5.1 compression on the g6x3 h/c builds.

I would go with the TSP 231/236. That cam was my second choice under the g6x3.

Very drive-able and makes ~480rwhp.

My third choice would be the JRE 470hp cam.

I love the 231-236 cam, turns heads everywhere I go and just flat out performs!! I've seen them make from 470-500 and 480/454 with 1 3/4 inch headers is great!! I can't wait to see 490/460 with the 1 7/8 stainless power!! Plus I'm hoping the 3.91's make the car feel that much torquier and put me in the powerband sooner!!

Couple things.

Your idle tone will change with the A/C active

Do not choose your cam based on how it sounds. Have your tuner make it sound like you want it.

You dont have to go supersize to get good performance.

The larger cam you install, the more you lose off the line and the larger stall you'd need.......and budget for gears to re-coop that light to light fun.

I like the LG cams. I like the 231/236 TSP cam. Id go with the 231/236 on a 112 LSA. You'll still go real fast. You'll have a little lower number on your dyno sheet ( about 10-15 less), and have slightly better drivability.

Add a FAST 102. No additional stress on the valve springs, no low end driving issues, and gain the RWHP you lost with the smaller cam.

A couple years ago, a 23x cam used to be huge. Now its like the norm.

I agree with everyone on here and just installed the TSP 231/236 cam with 112 LSA. The cam is bad A! I'll include a video so you can hear it on the dyno. It's agressive but does not kill the driveablity.

You can always build your own "custom cam" through comp cams. I really get tired of the "our cams are super secret squirrel" grinds......Get a 'custom' cam from only us...because ours are 'special.' No one has reinvented the wheel here. There are only a few companies that grind cams. All these special super custom cams come from these manufacturers. Call Comp.....browse their mast lobe catalogue.....they have a cam sheet. What I did was, talk to multiple vendors, shops, etc. Took their ideas/recommendations and decided what would work best for me......called Comp Cams, discussed it with them and ordered my own 'custom cam.'

but its not like you are going to make a cam any better or even worse. its all the same stuff if you ask me. so why not just use a cam that is already made to work. you know it will work you see people using them..


in the end cams will sound the same(you know what i mean by that ), and make same power.with right tuner of course.

every shop has there 470-480WHP cam. if you look at numbers they are all making.
