Hi all - Welcome back for the second time this month!

I apologize for the inconvenience of the site being offline. The site was down for technical reasons, but it didn't help that I was of offline for two weeks (camping and travel). Once I got back, it took a while to get things sorted out. That's resolved, and the site is now back up. Huzzah!

Please take a minute and read the Site News thread I've posted in the General section, and feel free to comment. Thanks!

Wondering what cam has everyone tried out.
I have a LC pro street turbo cam and revs good to about 6k rpms. I was curious if anybody tried out the Crower stage 3?

What other mods do you have?  Cam choice is just a piece of the puzzle.

Myself?   I run a Scheider stage 2 turbo cam.  Going to a stage 3 is pointless for me for a few reasons, but most notably that my auto trans won't carry the revs out past 6000 rpm.

If you haven't hit the dyno yet, you might try.  My power up top is limited by a few other things, not the cam.  Sure, it'll pull all the way up to 6000 rpms, but it's peak power and tq were 4800 rpm and 4200 respectively.

If your power rolls off before the "power range" of the cam, then a higher stage cam likely won't garner any extra power up top.  You may also lose power down low....

How much boost are you comfortable pushing?  And do you have a boost controller?

9-10 lbs right now and that's with no knocking at all. I have the turbo smart eboost controller
