If you want a decent size cam, you will need to upgrade your springs.

Contact CMS about their Stage 2, anything about that requires Valve Springs.

if you want a cam you can see the specs on then try wade cams and look at the 1673 or 977b, the 977b is the largest you should use on std valve springs

Mate, no offence at this stage, but can you use some punctuation. It makes it so much easier to understand what you are trying to say.

All I can get out of that is...... No they won't give you the specs, but they will do the grind for you, $180 exchange.

The rest, well......................

Thanks troyman. Ive done some research on the 977b with a LS of 110 i think it was? Would that work with my ecu?

Hmmm ok then might stick with 112 LS. Whats the pull like when it opens up? And whats the range?

Im realy just after something thats a little lumpy and realy punchy like boost allmost hahaha.

i think the 977b is @ 114lsa as standard now. thats what i had first. run okish on a standard ecu, but didnt like cold starts and ran a bit rich. i now have the 977b@110 and i dont think it would run on a standard ecu without a tune.

The lumpy that you want starts at 110*LC...... :)
