And valve springs and the bearing kit for the stock rocker arm upgrade in today. I went with a .558/.563 valve lift and .006 265/271 tappet lift as recommended by Comp cams and my machinest.

A4 and I'm thinkin of possibly having Ed Wright out of Tulsa to do my tuning or MC Racing out of KC. I have a Wieland LS6 intake manifold , K&N ram air intake, a carbon fiber power duct, putting in MSD Coil packs, MSD 8.5mm wires, NGK Iridium plugs also have Comp cams performance timing chain set, mufferless exhaust, boring out the motor ten over, having the heads redone, drilled and slotted rotors and hawk brake pads, I think I named everything now! Whew!!

Nice bump-stick. How much power do you expect to make after the install?

^ agree. that is a super small cam if that is what it is. My buddy's Firehawk has a custom grind with a duration of 254/265 @0.050. And your doing a few things backwards too. Ask any LS1 owner, never go with MSD coil pacs. They have a history of going out. Stock is best. Also if your going to spend the money on a manifold why not do it right and go with a 92mm FAST or since your boring the motor why not a ported 92mm-96mm. Seems like a waist of money for the Weiand.

I have already owned the Weiland for quite sometime now, it was by choice back when I got it but now wished I'd bought the Fast. I was originally gonna do a 585 lift but when I spoke with comp cams and told them what I wanted to do they recommended this cam, I will still get a nice sound thru the exhaust because I am voiding cats plus have no mufflers. With what I'm doing I was told I would see anywhere from 450 to 480hp at the crank which is fine with me right now.

Well my plans are to sell the Weiland and get the Fast and I have a three month warrenty on the Coils so I'll try them and if they don't work I'll get my money back.

Def do not install that cam...it is very small and the 115 lSA is barely going to give you the cam lope you want. Personally I would Go with a Texas Speed and Performance or Thunder Racing cam in the high 220 to low 230 duration and in the upper 500 or low 600 lift. Ls motors love a bigger cam profile and even the stock heads will work well for the power range your looking for. I have the TSP 233/239 .598 intake .603 exhaust on a 113 LSA and here is a quick idle video...

You dont need a gaint cam to have a fast car. I have seen cars that have a smooth idle and that kick ass.

Congrats on the parts man. That cam is on the small side but it all depends on what you want from the setup as to which camshaft to go with. I know it is hard to blelive for some people but bigger is not always better. GM high tech did a install on that cam a long time ago and if I remeber correctly it still picked up like 23rwhp over the stock cam. The stock LS1 cam is only 196/207 @ .050 on a 116 LSA with .467//.479 lift so his is still a big step up from that. I would really look at going with the Fast or a ported LS6 iintake though. But if you have the other already it does not cost you anything to use it.
