Int: 286
Ext: 299
Dur @ .050: 231 246
lobe sep: 115.0
valve lift: .640 .631
Cam installed with BT spring set, 7.75 pushrods, Ktech timing chain, Ls7 8 rib pulley, NGK plugs, 10 qts. Mobil 1 0W/40, tune. Done in December 2016.

Picked up 44 HP at rear wheels.

Slowhawk also did the ARH long tube headers, NGK plugs, tune. Picked up 30 HP (and great sound).

So, Cam and headers together, my Z picked up 75 HP at wheels, 42 ft. lbs of torque, and very, very badass sound.

I recommend it!

I like those specs for a big cube N/A cam. Don did my first custom cam back in 05 for my LS2 402 stroker project. Ran 10's on motor (drove it to and from the track) and had great driveability (A4). He's been doing LS stuff for a lot longer than a lot of these shops combined and really know his stuff and understands cam lobes very well.
