IIRC, you can get a custom grind for ~$350 or so. stock pushrods are capable of .650 lift, so that money could be spent elsewhere
Yeah, but doesn't the Crane 227 hold the cam only record for LT1s? That was the main reason I was looking at it. Sure, its a bit more expensive but it seems to be a proven part.

As for pushrods, I don't mind reusing the stocks I just figured since I was thinking of upping the rev-limiter to 6500 and the car has 114xxx on it, I might want to look into hardened pushrods. I think I might remove the crank from the parts list also though because upon further consideration, an aftermarket cast crank wouldn't be any better than the stock crank and I'd have to get it balanced anyway. Might as well just reuse the stocker.

P.S. - I can get the cam here for 335, which seems to be as good a deal as any of the other cams.

I thought I had taught you better than that. is your car going to be the new LT1 cam only record holder? the 227 is a good cam, in fact its one of the best OTC cams you can find. but remember that just because it works in a pure track car doesnt mean it will work as well for a weekend warrior dd


As for pushrods, I don't mind reusing the stocks I just figured since I was thinking of upping the rev-limiter to 6500 and the car has 114xxx on it, I might want to look into hardened pushrods. I think I might remove the crank from the parts list also though because upon further consideration, an aftermarket cast crank wouldn't be any better than the stock crank and I'd have to get it balanced anyway. Might as well just reuse the stocker.

P.S. - I can get the cam here for 335, which seems to be as good a deal as any of the other cams.
As for the pushrods, IIRC, 93 and 94’s came stock with hardened pushrods to begin with. And as far as hardened, the only real benefit for hardened pushrods is if you are running guideplates. Because the pushrod hardening is to keep the outside of the rod from grinding away to nothing against guideplates with NSA rockers.

you can up the rev limiter to 7k if you want. the stock bottom end of these cars is twice as strong as most people give it credit for.

Here’s what I was running in my 94Z with 12.5 cr
230 / 240 - .544/.576 - 110 LSA
with a stalled A4, full bolt-ons, handported heads/intake, and some spray
IIRC, I paid around $350 for that cam (somewhat custom grind) 4 years ago


another option
http://www.lingenfelter.com/sites/li...mationv1.3.pdf


and another option is Comp Cams XE 230/236 if you can find it. I've seen some here an there used go for less than $200



also, you need to get some good springs/hardware to compliment the cam as well. I was running 918's for a while till they started having failures (not my personal ones, but Comp started farming out the manufacture of their springs and less quality came about). I switched to PAC 1518s that are good to .650 lift. the 1218s are good to about .600 lift and the 918's are about .625 lift.

I didn't see anything listed on the springs you had selected on what their max lift was.

also... you should do this in the 4th gen section. lol

and find some heads or have yours ported to maximize the cam.
