L99 Cam Swap

MTI Racing just finished up another 2010 Camaro camshaft swap, lowering springs, and sway bar package. This L99 Camaro came in from Alabama wanting more power and better handling, no problem.

We started by installing our Stage 1 Camshaft with matching valve springs. The stage 1 Camshaft is designed to be used with the stock torque converter and the DOD system on the L99 Camaro. This camshaft makes awesome horsepower and torque by taking advantage of the great airflow the LS3 cylinder heads, plus the added benefit of headers the car already had installed. You will get a mild to moderate sound from this camshaft. This Camaro went from 312rwhp to 405rwhp.

We also installed a set of the MTI Racing Sport Lowering Springs to give the car a more aggressive look and improve the handling by lowering the center of gravity. Combined with the MTI Racing Sway Bars to limit body roll this Camaro is now ready to carve up those mountain roads with confidence.

List of Goodies
MTI Racing Stage 1 Camshaft
MTI Racing Sport Lowering Springs

I'd like to hear this too. Good output though.

How much should one expect to pay for a cam install and tune? I have Kook's 1 7/8"'s and a Rotofab... looking for next fun mod!

Would this cam be a problem if/when I go to a supercharger?

It dynoed at 312 rwhp WITH headers already???

WTF?, THAT dude was in serious need of a fuse pull.

Were the headers installed loosely in the trunk? I'm a little confused.

I was thinking the same way. I've yet to see a cam, especially a stage 1 cam, that makes 90whp. This cam is suppose to be DOD friendly? It just doesn't add up. Even the GX6 cam doesn't give that much of a gain and it's pretty radical.

It was probably in need of a fuse pull, yes. But that was probably hurting it by about 10hp.

This is why we base line the car before we do the work, and then dyno it after we do the work.

The cam swap and dyno tuning were a great upgrade.
