see my thread over in engines...110whp gain on a GPI vvt grind...but I'm guessing you have an LS3...your loss.

You guys with custom grinds have more cubes right. Im still stock. Im not sure im at the level that needs a "custom" grind. Im sure all these companies that have blower cams did there homework and didnt just pull #s out of thin air. And when you get a cam specced for you is it going to be more aggressive than an "off the shelf" grind? I dont want to be replacing valvesprings every few months. Also how much detail do you think these people that spec out cams go into. Lets say this guy has 2" headers, 12 psi and someone else has 1 7/8" , 10 psi. Are the cam specs going to be different. I doubt it

There is more power to be had with a custom grind on any size motor, 400+ cubes or not. A custom grind is typically more aggressive than off the shelf, but that is becasue I would argue that most custom cams are going in cars that want that. A custom cam is just that CUSTOM. It can be ground anyway you or the builder wants.

The cam specs will be slightly different between those two cars if you are going to maximize the setup. But they would be damn close, yes.

Off the shelf cams are good, but custom costs the same. Why put a universal part on your custom build?

You guys do realise that all the cams listed are "custom grinds" right?

if you have a ECS blower setup why wouldnt you work with ECS or someone like FSP that has a ton of experience with their own blowers? im sure a ton of R&D has gone into it.

To the OP...you need to talk to your tuner and see what he likes and wants to tune.

Good tuners have a lot of experience to draw on, and know what works best with the driving style and power desires of the owner... You have to be honest in discussions about the power desires and driving style with them though...

All the above mentioned cams will work just fine but I really like doing custom grinds if the customer will allow it. Isn't a money thing from a business standpoint but it provides the best gains per the combo and goals of the customer. We use Ed curtis for all of our custom grinds and his name easily speaks for itself.

I know a custom grind will always make more power but are we talking 5hp or 50 and at the expense of valvetrain life?

It depends on the setup, and how much more aggressive the cam grind is. I for one couldn't get the same characteristics from an off the shelf cam, does that mean that my cam is much more powerful than an off the shelf? No, but it suited my car better. Again, Valvetrain life can be better with a custom grind, just as an off the shelf cam can be hard on springs too.

If you want that sound, get used to doing valve springs. Anything with high lift and a lope at idle will be harder on springs.

The ecs and night fury have both made 800+rwhp on stock blocks so i guess cant go wrong with either.
