Basically I'm getting tired of my set up. I have a pretty big custom grind cam, full exhaust, FAST LSX intake manifold, Volant CAI, Meziere EWP, Yank SS 3600 converter, TransGo shift kit, tranny cooler, yada yada.
The drivability of the car with the big cam was fun but now is just getting annoying. The car has to idle high (1100-1200 RPMs) so it will not stall. Which makes it a mother to drive in traffic. Also it surges, etc. Which I'm tired of, I want to get drivability back. Also it seems I need to swap my PRC dual valve springs for Comp 921's since the PRC's have been having valve float issues in other cars with the same cam.
Anyways I have a few options. My bud's shop that sells the cam is willing to give me their cam a step down from the one I have and install it for free for their cam back. The smaller cam will pretty much drive like stock besides a nasty lope at idle . I will lose around 15RWHP but gain around 10RWTQ and have a much nicer power curve. Of couse it will also stop making power 500 RPMs lower than the cam I have now. To make up for the power loss (since I will not be happy with a smaller cam) I will add milled AFR 225 heads and Comp 921 springs. Looking to make 445-450RWHP with this set up. I will also add a 150 shot of nitrous on top of it later.
My other option is the shop is willing to give me a Procharger at cost, afor free they will also throw in a custom grind blower cam in exchange for their cam and a boosta pump for the extra fuel needed. This set up has been proven to make 500RWHP on every car they have done it to. If I want more power for $200 extra they will throw in a set of 60lb injectors to make 550RWHP.
If I want to go with the ATI set up I need to get a built tranny first. If I go with the head/cam combo I could just do that now and get a built tranny befor I add some nitrous. The H/C combo will be $2000 less right now... though as I said later I will add nitrous.
The H/C combo is looking good now since it's cheaper. Though the ATI set up is a smoking deal. This will be a few months off so I can save up some more $$$, but I'm for sure done with the big cam... I have a brand new car that's a PITA to drive and I'm sick of it.
