FlowTech Induction CAM

so, im finally ready to get a cam and had it spec'd by Ed Curtis at FlowTech. just want to make sure i've got everything covered for the install so i can get this done all at once. im up to speed on the melling oil pump "upgrade" debate but im choosing not to go that route as i've only got 20K mi's on my car now.

i'll be doing the trunion upgrade.
a 10% UD harmonic balancer was recommended, but not completely sold on it for $550.
looking for feedback between the C5-R vs Rollmaster Billet CS1190.

FTI LSX "Custom Designed" Hydraulic Roller Camshaft Kit
Camshaft Package Include:
Custom Designed Hydraulic Roller LSx Camshaft
Lunati Micro-polished Dual Valve Springs
Seven Degree Chromemoly Retainers
Hardened Seven Degree Valve Locks
Steel Shelled Viton Valve Seals
FTI Pro-Series Hardened Push Rods

and the valve spring tool

thanks

You can remove that balancer and save 250+ for a powerbond and add a melling for 130? That comes to 380?
Remove the Rollmaster and get the C5r for the same price. Just my .2

Lol hey your getting the good stuff!
Especially from Ed!
Might as well go the whole way lol.
Cam plus full bolton's, ftw!
Don't forget to get rid of the tensioner and get the Ls2 dampner if you haven't already.

This. The ~$250 powerbond does the job just fine, have one on my own car and installed several on customer cars.
