Yes, but for the automatics you will need to add one of our custom torque converters in the package.

That is why we offer several different packages ranging from a $3k-CAI/Headers package to this street stalker package for $6k, our supercharger package(includes several other mods) for $20k, and all the way up to our LS7 440ci Punisher package around $30k. I promise if you search on these boards and read the fine print of other tuner shops you will see you got alot more for your money with us. At the same time you get what you pay for. So you need to look out for deals that sound too good to be true, usually means its a small shop with no overhead and not alot of experience and thats why they can charge so little for their work. People do not mind spending a little extra money to get it done right the first time, other wise you will end up spending twice as much in the long run.

To answer a few more questions I would recommend installing the U/D pulley and thermostat when installing a cam shaft. The reason being is we have to remove your stock pulley and thermostat for the install anyway, so for no extra labor charge why not install the U/D pulley and T-stat at that time.

If you do not have the money to go with the entire Street Stalker Package I would recommend starting out with our CAI/Headers/Tune. This way you get the performance gains you are looking for as well as the killer sound while driving down the road/track. After that we can install our custom grind cam kit along with the U/D pulley to get you around that 500rwhp marker

Hope I answered everyones questions, if not feel free to post up or always feel free to give me a call at the shop to discuss our different packages to see which one fits your goals/needs the most.

Looks Great! Now if we could only see some real world performance stats, it would seal the deal for me. C'mon LMR, run it down the track!

It seems like in every post they side step the question and just ignore it. If they don't want to give any information, they should just say so.

Sorry guys, but there is going to be many tuner shops out there trying to come up with the same results as us. Giving away cam specs so early in development is kinda shooting our selves in the foot. Anyone interested in our packages can feel free to call me at the shop. Every customer has a different goal/needs for his/her car so the cam selection will be determined by each car with the setup.

No shops give up there cam specs right away, One thing I can tell you and Steven can correct me if I'm wrong LMR's dyno is conservative.

LMR has long passed the status of filling anyones void.

Like I said before, telling someone 23x/23x on a range of LSA doesn't give away anything...You have to know IVO/IVC EVO/EVC cam lobe design, etc...I think it is a fair question to tell folks a general idea of how much duration it is taking to achieve those hp/tq #'s. For those of us who daily drive their cars, it is helpful, because there are cam size limits some of us have, for daily drivability.

That's cool that you don't want to share the info, I appreciate you telling us so we'll quit asking. I'm just glad to have so many shops working hard to develop quality performance parts. I'm just giving some customer feedback that we'd like to know what general size ranges make how much power.

Thanks!

I understand completely. Our stage 2 cam is around 22x 23x duration and close to .600 lift. Hope that helps a little.

Yes it does, that's really pretty streetable (depending upon LSA and lobes) for a 6.2L motor...it will chop a little, but with good tuning, should be reasonable on the street.

Thanks!

Exactly, that is what we were going for. Our stage 2 cam will be for the everyday drivers that want great mid range power and a choppy idle without having to sacriface any drivability loss. Driving this thing on the hwy in 6th gear at 1200 rpms is no problem. This car drives absolutely GREAT! Never have to worry about rpms jumping around on you when coming to a stop.

MTI in houston was a great facility, but they were known for more of just bolting on parts instead of custom fabrication work and real race car stuff which we do quite a bit of including our normal street packages.

You would never see cars like this come out of their shop...

LMR...how much more hp can be made with a "hotter" cam? To give up "some" streetability, can a much bigger hp number be had? That cam there sounds VERY nice!
