There is random popping. I'd get that checked out before you beat on it.

Its actually from the phone. It doesnt sound like that at all. I dont know why the phone sounds like that. I heard that too when I reviewed the video so I went to start it up again and doesnt have that popping.

Ok. Just being extra cautious is all!

Good to hear! Is there a way you could get a decent video driving that shows the surging or bucking? I can't decide between this and the 231. Both have great power and decent torque

I have a the 231/236 with M6 and stock gearing. I wouldn't go any bigger for car that you are going to drive all of the time. Mine can even be a pain some times with the bucking.

Mail tune with jason at tsp. I need to take it to get it dyno tuned with him. I just finished my cts-v I'll probably take the ss to him in august. my brother had the 231 in his ss. Imo they both drive the same. Yes it does buck hard when it gets into the rythm but for the few extra hp its worth it to me. If you learn to drive it your good. whats the point of putting a cam into a car doing all the work for something mild? Its pay to play. Either pay $$ or some drive ability learn to live with it or dont do it. IMO. But with this cam you will need 675 springs. The 650s wont handle the cam.

I also am running the TSP 231/236 cam.. So far its been a blast to have the extra ponies.. But there has been more loss of drivability then I had originally thought but it's getting better the more and more I drive the car. I've only had it for a little over a week now.

Here's the dyno sheet next to a 231/236 on the same engine, same dyno, same day!!



The funny thing is I'm testing a new lobe bigger than the 235 that also clears! LOL
