Just got cammed but need help

Hello

I recently volunteered to lend my car to be tested on and came out cammed
with a L99 comp cam vvt setup, just paid for discount labor and a few other things.

I have Kooks 1 7/8 headers, HF cats, CAI, Borla attack mufflers and tune.

But biggest concern is still have stock stall converter and I'm getting a small bucking slowing down from 2nd to 1st gear.

baseline dyno was 323rwhp and after install and tune 410 rwhp/392 tq, i have dyno sheet if needed.

What converter size your you recommend?

sounds sick but having a stock converter with a bigger cam shouldn't hurt your engine at all, you just get more low end power and you launch faster with a higher stall, also makes the car more street-able, but id recommend a 3200 stall that's your best bet IMO. unless you plan on FI soon.

Is it the VVT 1 or 2?

Either or I'd say a ~3200 from pro torque or yank.

Pm rhino79 he knows and tunes these VVT cams. You won't regret it either.

I would say it depends on what your car is used for. If its like most on here that sees mostly street duty and light to moderate track duty I would say run a 2800-3200. I would run closer to 2800 for the road course and the 3200 for the 1/4 mile. Good luck with your choices.

You dont have to go to a better stall. It is not going to hurt anything if you dont. But if you do not like that little bit of bucking and want one put in i would listen to the guys on here. That cam is a lot milder than mine and I run my stock converter and it does some bucking changing gears but it doesnt really bother me. Eventually i want a higher stall, but that is for me to break 12 seconds on the strip.

Did you ask them about this? They have a good name so I would ask them to double check the trans settings.
