LG Motorsports 2010 Camaro SS Super Pro and G6X3 dyno results

As part of the Camaro group that came through LG Motorsports, we just sent the second happy owner home today.

Morey's car had a bit more work done to it. We included the full exhaust front to back, K&N cold air system, the full LG Super Pro Exhaust including mufflers, Underdrive pulley, and LG G6X3 cam kit. We finished it off with the LG Short Shifter!

Baseline numbers seem a little on the low side to me for a manual car, but after numbers are close to what I would expect with the given modifications. As shown we picked up 122 HP and 96 TQ at the rear tires over the shown baseline. I would expect most to baseline around 385 RWHP so a gain close to 90-100 at the rear tires.




Thanks Morey for dropping in the shop and letting us build your Camaro!

Those Mods really helped that car, man that baseline looks horrible...

Good job guys. Saving my Pennies for that same cam.

No piston to valve clearance issues with the G6x3?

No valve reliefs required?

Any graphs of same mods plus some decent heads?

There are no clearance problems with the G6X3 and stock unmilled heads.

Intake, Exhaust, Cam and the car picks up 122 HP and 96 TQ....

There's a reason why we stand behind LG's products! Nice work Anthony and the Team.

Those are fantastic gains and look great all across the graph.

Bump for awesomeness.

Camaro 5 needs more LG in it's life.

Other vendors/sources beg to differ.

I am cautious about it to say the least...but definitely open to some information on the subject.

That source has yet to prove there is a problem. The source only cares to pop into threads about the G6X3 and add his comment without proof.

Strange they dont offer larger cams if it wasnt a problem. They could do that just as easy as anyone else.

Though they may be ok for most for most of the time....
What about long term risk, over revs etc? I am just skeptical that they might be too close for comfort. I wish I had some solid data.

Ill be doing h/c eventually and having a hard time with the choice...

There are a boatload of guys who have been running the same cam in the Vettes.

Go over to vetteforums.com and do a search there as well. In certain applications, I'm sure there might be a problem.

But I'd challenge that a big portion of those "issues" were in applications where somebody went the "cheap" or performed an "untried method" and ended up slappin metal.

LG wouldn't be having the success that they have had with this cam if there were P/V issues with it.

Oh, I'm not trying to convince anyone. I'm thinking that time will be the barometer of the ordeal with cams in the LS3s. I just have my own personal confidence in their G series of cams from our experience with them.

Everyone is different.

There are cams out there with even more aggressive duration numbers that people are putting in cars without P/V issues or flycutting pistons.

Longevity will certainly play a role, but with "race" engines, there are things that wear faster without a doubt.

I'm hoping that we'll be able to have some news to share on this front soon as well as we're actually working with a customer on something very very rowdy. (read: Mucho Aggressive Cam)

I'm actually surprised that more people with LS3 Camaros aren't rocking the LG cams.

I installed the G6X3 into OrangeChevyII's car at 2100 miles. After 4k miles, 75 ish track passes shifting at 7100 and 10-15 overrevs at 8100 rpm (bad clutch) the valves NEVER hit the pistons. If there was a problem you would hear about it from someone other than the "source".

The cam made 495rwhp with stock heads. With LG stage 2 heads, FAST 102 and a NW 102 tb it made 536rwhp.

Those are great numbers. I seen them before. 530rwhp na is nuts. Supercharger territory without the extra weight.

For a moslty street car wouldnt a smaller choice be a bit better? I have heard they surge bad under 2k.

Decisions Decisions....
