Most HP/TQ gains from cam?

I'm just about ready to get a cam. I'm gonna do some research on my own, but if anyone knows more about this feel free to chime in. So which cam is makin the most HP and TQ??? I've got LT headers and CAI installed now. Thanks!

Remember...it's not all about peak power. If it sucks down low, that car will be no fun on the street....well...less fun :P

Truth.

There are plenty of "dyno queen" cams out there that are explosive at 5k+ RPM and put down big numbers, but below that RPM range have an awful HP/TQ range. They also usually have uncomfortable daily-driver aspect.

From personal view, which is worth what you pay for it, the market is still developing and it is hard to say which cam presents the best power band.

Vector and TSP both have cams out that have shown Peak Hp gains of over a 100.

Both were done on different dynos and different cars of course, but anything close to that number is phenominal where I come from.

Between those two in my opinion.

A friend of mine put the LG G6X3 cam in his 10 camaro and it sounds absolutely amazing! That thing pulls hard and made close to 480hp at the wheels.
