Best Cam for good torque curve

Im torn between Night fury, Vengeance Kaotic and TSP 235/243. This is not my daily driver its my cruise around looking for good street race car. So chime in on what cam you have and why you choose it. I dont care about peak hp its overrated i want the power where i use it the most.

Smaller cams will give you power and tq where you need it. Larger ones will move everything up the rpm range. Example: 224-228 will give you all your hp/tq from about 2,000 rpm to about 5500-6000. 230 + moves the power band up to around 4,000 rpm to red line. This is just a general guideline, results may vary.

NF or Kaotic for me in that order, either wont move the band that much higher and both come from two awesome shops that are in relentless pursuits for customer service.

What RPM range do you want to focus on? Of course most of the larger cams are going to push power up in the RPM range....

To build a lot of low end grunt, that is what a good set of Long Tube headers are for.....mid and top end power, while it needs to have a good exhaust not to restrict it...that is going to come from the top end, mainly cam/heads/intake.


Stock LS3 M6 SS vs LG Super Pro's, G6X3 cam, milled heads, underdrive, 3" mid section, LG Velocity CAI




Don't have a before but this was our 'One Lap of America' SS with our G5X3 which is a slightly less aggressive lobe pattern.




We do have other cams too, but these are by far the most popular.


Stock short block LS3. LG G6X3 cam, LG Super Pro's, 3" mid section, mild ported heads (before graph had a set of 1 3/4 LT's on a stock car)

A wider lsa will give you a broader powerband, the problem is you have to go with a smaller intake duration to get an early IVC and it opens the exhaust valve earlier as well. So it's a trade off, what rpm power band are you looking to maximize?
