Right, just do the 305/45R18 and your car wont know the diffence driving to the track and back. Of course you wouldnt want to DD like that but will be fine to and from the track.

I am going to get my car on the Dyno this weekend with my current mods- RotoFab intake, TSP LTH, FLowMaster 3 inch AMT cat back, and my JRE tune. I will post up the results.

I am Leaning Towards 3 cams
1-the "545" Cam
2-The All Mighty "Night Fury" Cam
3-And the Latest and Greatest from TSP Texas Speed LS3 235/239 .639"/623" Camshaft

Leaning Towards the Brian Tooley Plat Springs--Already have the ARP Bolts, 3 bolt cam car, ls2 dampner, GM Gaskets, and melling oil pump.. Also will pick up a c5r chain. Not sure if I am going to do the rocker arm upgrade. Some say it is needed some say it isn't.

What I like about TSP is they test there stuff on a engine dyno. A few of the guys I know run there stuff. Cant Deny the Night Fury's results, and that 545 cam doesnt get the press like the others, but looking at it and the results seem solid.

I'm actually getting my cam installed by PCM of NC next month trying out their '545' cam with my setup. all of the dyno sheets and videos I've seen on it seem solid and a great streetable cam with good power. As for you, I wouldn't "lean" towards the BTR springs or trunnion upgrade, I highly advise you to get them. I don't know Who told you upgraded trunnions weren't needed, but they are trying to set you up for failure.

I know my advice may seem old school.....but take a closer look at the dyno sheets on some of these cams you like. Your useable tq doesnt start till 4k rpm. My assumption was you wanted useable tq. For these heavy cars we want our tq to start a lot lower in the curve and stay there, ultimately, to 6k rpm or so. Many get so hooked on big hp #'s......thats not what gets you there fast. Also, when you get into the high 230's low 240's duration and super high lift, you run into other issues.....stress on the valvetrain and driveability. I would suggest a cam in the 226-232 duration and under .600 lift. Keep the lsa tight.....108-112. In this range you will find all the tq you could hope for. Good luck.

Ill tell you a good cam to use for good all around power that will make right at 460 and will make good power up to about 6700. The LPE GT1 cam. Easy to tune, easy on valvetrain, as a matter of fact, with only 560's lift, it can be ran with stock springs. Id recommend 918s, but the stock springs are good for .570.
