I let Tim pick my cam. There is only so much (more) lift you can get without changing out springs and such (incurring much more cost).

I'm sure you'd save on labor if you did it all at the same time.

Do it all at once if you can you will save a lot more unless you get hooked up on installs...

i like the cam Jenn from Maryland Speed has in her SRT. cam only in her car on stock heads its over 450hp to the rear. she has the "Super Spartan Max" best numbers i have seen from a cam only SRT.

now i don't know how that cam fits you if your gonna do heads later. but that is the one i am getting when i do my cam.

Heres a quick referance on how to understand the specs on a cam.



Tighten (smaller LSA number)
Moves Torque to Lower RPM
Increases Maximum Torque
Narrow Power band
Builds Higher Cylinder Pressure
Increase Chance of Engine Knock
Increase Cranking Compression
Increase Effective Compression
Idle Vacuum is Reduced
Idle Quality Suffers
Open Valve-Overlap Increases
Closed Valve-Overlap Increases
Natural EGR Effect Increases
Decreases Piston-to-Valve Clearance


Widen (larger LSA number)
Raise Torque to Higher RPM
Reduces Maximum Torque
Broadens Power Band
Reduce Maximum Cylinder Pressure
Decrease Chance of Engine Knock
Decrease Cranking Compression
Decrease Effective Compression
Idle Vacuum is Increased
Idle Quality Improves
Open Valve-Overlap Decreases
Closed Valve-Overlap Decreases
Natural EGR Effect is Reduced
Increases Piston-to-Valve Clearance


Advancing
Begins Intake Event Sooner
Open Intake Valve Sooner
Builds More Low-End Torque
Decrease Piston-Intake Valve Clearance
Increase Piston-Exhaust Valve Clearance


Retarding
Delays Intake Closing Event
Keeps Intake Valve Open Later
Builds More High-RPM Power
Increase Piston-Intake Valve Clearance
Decrease Piston-Exhaust Valve Clearance

I think the "Super" spartan has a faster ramp on the lift, keeping the valve open longer without changing the duration.

HP isnt anything if you dont have the TQ.... We have pretty heavy cars... need to somehow get them moving...But then you also have to consider wheel spin into the mix... w/ a torque monster you should have a higher then stock converter...
