Looking into buying a cam.

I was wanting everybodies opinion on buying this cam from comp-cams. do you think it's to much for the motor or should I go for it.

I will be installing it in a 3.8L supercoupe motor with less than 65,000 miles on it. If you all think it will work good.



Xtreme Energy(Tm); Camshaft: Hydraulic Roller; 1500-6000 Rpm; Advertised Duration 265 Intake/281 Exhaust; Valve Lift .500 Intake/Exhaust; Lobe Angle 115 Degrees

Re: Looking into buying a cam.

What other mods do you plan on installing on/with the motor?

Nothing really some underdrive pullies, CAI, 10-15% overdrive pully on the supercharger and of corse better exhaust.

Re: Looking into buying a cam.

Imo. It seems a little too aggressive. Don't those engines peak in the high 4000 low 5000 rpm range? I would check out supersix motorsports for the right cam.

Re: Looking into buying a cam.

Yeah but would like to be able to hear the cam lope a little. I don't want it to be extream or anything just sound good with added horsepower.

I think you would be satisfied with this setup.

The more recognizeable specs for this cam are. 210/225 .50 115 LSA its not a big cam at all.

Re: Looking into buying a cam.

The thing is I can rebuild just about any motor you set in front of me but I have no clue about buying cams do you or anybody have a suggestion on what size cam would sound good but not kill drivability on the street.

If your talking about thumper cam from comp they only make it for the v8s that i've seen I could be wrong but havent seen it. If you're talking about supersix then only cam I seen they reccomend.
