texas speeed LS3 231/236 Cam

me and my workshop in new zealand have decided when i want to go ahead is to cam my crate LS3 in my HSV GTS with the above cam cost about 1500 NZ to buy all parts from TSP. Now my car is a manual 3.9 diff gears, long tube header, twin 3'' now this cam will it sound nasty? and whats the downlow torque like say traffic light battles ect any experience be appreciated.

cheers

If this sounds nasty to you, than yes... it sounds very nasty.


driveability is great with this cam. with your better gearing, it will be fine.

The tsp .231/.236 gets alot of praise from the guys who have it. Seems to make excellent power even with stock heads and intake and have good street manners. If you've got 3.90's then I'd say you're golden.

Yea ive got the exhaust system all done and sounds ok for a stock LS3 Engine but the resonance in the cab gives me a headache im running lomg tubes 3'' no cats delete 3'' pipes into a twin 3'' looking at some 14'' magnaflow mufflers in after the headers to sharpen up the note and resonance and with the 231/236 it should sound awesome

I'll agree that the 231/236 is plenty street friendly once tuned!

Be sure to check out our cam package sales we have going on through this Wednesday (April 14th) to save you some money!!
