Camshaft Time

Okay guys I am ready for a cam. I have had my truck for about 6 hours . I signed papers after lunch.

What do you guys think on cam choices I have a few good ideas of my own but I was wondering who if anybody has done some testing. I want more midrange myself.

Also does the Vector tune lock your computer if not I will buy it if so I will not.

Your best bet would be to check with other (LS2) forums, or any Corvette guy that has spent some time with the motor to see what they have tried and what does and doesn't work. And of course, let us know what you find.

Welcome to the site.

The LS2 at least in the C6/GTO comes with the same cam specs that the 2001 Z06 came with , not sure if the SS LS2 is any different , the key to making good power will be to match the cam specs to the characteristics of the truck intake that is used on SS LS2's , the intake is designed more for low to mid range so it won't make sense to put a cam in it that makes power way up top , with a cam , and headers we could probably pick up at least 40-50 RWHP , like the C6 LS2's are making .

Vector will give you a tune locked or unlocked, your choice. They're great like that.

Contrary to what someone else has said, as far as a cam goes, I would not seek advice from car guys. We've got 1,500 lbs on a Vette or GTO, and also have the auto tranny to deal with.

You can do something just a little better than stock, like Lingenfelter's GT2-3 which specs out at 207/220, .580/.580, 118.5. This is a little better than stock in the duration department (204/211) and better in lift (.525/.525).

Comp has an old standby that lots of guys like - 212/218, .559/.563, 115. That will probably give you the right amount of high-end without losing low-end, requiring an aftermarket torque converter.

Then you could step up into the 220/220 region or higher, which will likely necessitate getting a new converter.

What are your goals? How will you be driving it? Will you ever tow with it?
