Getting bored NA. How will my current cam like boost?

I've got a Howards Cams ASA cam, 226/236 525/525 110 with the right valvesprings. Getting kinda bored with the car and I'm thinking about putting a D1sc on it.

Just curious if this cam is ok, mediocre, or terrible for a supercharged application. Also have the stock cam lying around I could throw back in.

Thoughts? opinions?

What does an ideal boost cam look like?

"Ideal" depends on dozens of variables.

But certainly nothing wrong with that cam for a little blower like that, and going back to a stock cam would not do anything positive.

$25 bucks to have Pat G spec you a good Centri cam to your particular setup...

For a Centri cam you want intake and exhaust opening/closing events to be optimized to favor the low end torque of the LS3 (before the blower makes boost) while limiting overlap in the mid to upper rpm range so that little boost is blown out the exhaust (less scavenging). This cammotion grind seems to do well 228/244 .621/.604 115+5.

Many NA cams have been shown to work well with PD you can certainly use you current cam and see how you like it and change cams later if need be. Not mandatory to use a blower spec cam. It is a good time to check the wear of your cam and buy a blower cam if there are wear issues.

Cam Motion is $30 if they spec it. Free if you spec your own. If they spec'd for free everybody and their brother would be hitting them up. They need to get something for their time. That is only fair.

Years ago they charged me for my 351W turbo cam spec. The $30 quote was from their website form just today. Oh well...

Hmm... well, I emailed them directly asking about a custom cam, and they replied with a form that I filled out. I wonder if it is because I didn’t do it thru their site, and did it via email?

Whatever works... Cam Motion won't steer you wrong....

The mild turbo specific cam (228 and 540ish lift) they spec'ed out for my 351W dynoed 453HP and 447TQ (made above 400TQ from 3100 to 6100) with just the shops 750 dyno cam and no tuning. It would have been stout at 15lbs of boost from a Y2K 88mm. But I sold it before I put it in the car - got sent to Afghanistan.

The current cam is not completely ideal for an SC, but I wouldn't bother to put the stock one back in over what you have now. If you want to maximize the set up you could definitely stand to change it to something more F/I oriented! I guess it just comes down to how much power you are trying to make?

This is one we did below with our Avenger cam, did 740 rwhp, that's about as much as I like to run on a factory bottom end anyway.
