What is the largest cam that you have heard being run in a LS1 or LS6 motor?
I have seen one listed that was 278/298 with .831/.811 inches of lift :eek: did not know it could be made that large.
The guy was running Manley Nextek "TRIPLE" springs with 331lbs closed and 907lbs open pressure!
That would make for some serious cam LUMP, the guy had it at 408 with forged bottom end.

must idle @ 2400 and run up to 9500 rpm LOL I've heard of guys going up to a max in the range of 242/247 or so on the street with around 0.65/0.65 lift but even that would be almost impossible to endure on a constant basis LOL

Well... ok... i'd still try it anyhow LOL ;)

I've never heard of a cam that big before.

Was that cam in a street car?

Its a strip vette to my knowledge, was worked on by Ron @ Vengeance at one time and is on his website
and was in one of the car magazines in an article.
