I donít know why everyone gets so hung up on Dyno numbers. They are all over the place numbers wise and all kinds of things effect the number. They are simply a tool. Never even had our car on a dyno. No real need if you can tune at the track.

That being said the SS4 is an amazing cam. I have one of the old versions of it in my wifeís car and itís been 10.7@128. Also understand youíre NOT going to get a full weight 5th Gen cam only car into the 10ís. 10ís are not a walk in the park. Youíll need more power, or a lot less weight. Took me many trips to the track to get my wifeís car to where it is now. Making more changes and going for 9ís next season.

Thereís a guy on YouTube Nasty2SS that inspired me to cam it.With similar mods ,I donít know about his cam specs but he says he made 491 whp in his 14ss. So 485 to 500 would be great for me. But if I was going FI I wouldnít care either lol. Hopefully I can get it done this weekend and tuned the next so I can post some results.

If/when you guys have any videos, please post them. Would love to hear how this cam sounds!


I too have a 1LE and bought the SS4 NFC cam kit so I'm looking forward to seeing your results so I can have an idea of what to expect when I get mine installed

I did the whole n/a build.

TSP VVT 3.2 cam and see sig for the rest...

Put a Stage 2 ProCharger D1X on with 3.9" pulley and was shooting for about 650rwhp.

I was blown away when it laid down 723rwhp on 93 pump and 760rwhp on E85 with 14lbs by 6,800 rpm's!

If you go for boost, I highly recommend the D1X!

I am subscribed to him. Good, down to earth dude who doesn't pretend to know everything, and his car is badass. He was an active member here at one point.

Itís in.

I stuck it in her Saturday night. No tune and I mucked up the threads to the 2nd spark plug on the driver side. But she still fired up and I donít think the drivetrain sounded bad at all. The LTs thru the NPP is nasty and the cam untuned sound beastly. Canít wait to get to GPI and get my Rod mod intake and tuned

Listen her and let me know what yíall think.
