ABOUT TO JOIN THE CAMMED CLUB!!!!!

I just got the majority of the parts i may be needing for the cam install which consist of l99 to ls3 conversion, dual btr springs, hardened pushrods, an ofcourse the camshaft! All i am waiting on now are the ls3 valves,meilling oil pump,powerbond ud pulley, 3500 t/c which steve at rdp is working on for me, and my transmission cooler. according to steve i should be able to have everything in by sometime next week so i cant wait to get this installed tuned and hitting the tracks!!

are you worried about warranty? if youre not pull the trigger in an l99 its lil more pricey since you aveto convert to ls3 for the bigger cams for me personally its costing me close to 3gs with converter valves,valves springs etc.

550hp? I made 420rwhp cammed with an l99 conversion. To motor you're probably going to see just around 500.

I broke my differential in several pieces internally with cam bolt ons. So I'd start thinking about modding it or at least putting posi mod.

thats close to mine except its a 113 lsa. have you broken anything as of yet with your current cam since i see you're hitting over 460rwhp? I dont wat to get my cam installed and have to bring it back in because something broke in my differential or anywhere at all.

Something else I did that you may or may not be intersted in is p&p the throttle body , port the intake, and maybe have the heads CNC'ed.

I think my package was a little over 5 grand with labor. Sounds like you got a pretty good deal. Is that for everything?

ok good to know, whew fastvee had me shitting bricks already lol i had gone to litle88 for advice on the majority of my build, and he hadnt mentioned anything about possibly breaking anything. I bought pretty much all the supporting mods he adviced, so special thanks to him and all the other c5.com members and ls1tech.com if they are any on here!

I'm going to RDP next month for a dyno tune! I'll be talking to him about a cam but probably not till next year. Does Steve custom grind or is the Comp cam a stock item?
