    I probably won't get back to S.A.P. prior to the install unless we can get out there this coming weekend so it'll probably go right to RPM for the install (not tackling another cam in my lifetime cause I'm sick of it) then I'll dyno tune it. The difference is it'll be warmer and on a different dyno so no real apples to apples. In the end, I'm sure I'll go back to the S.A.P. dyno in a couple week and hopefully MSJ can be there to video it.

    Re: LS9 cam on the way

    This is so tempting. I haven't thought about a camshaft change here in CARB-land since the late 70's, but if a ZR1 can be a 50-state car, I gotta believe a tuned LSA with this stick in it could also pass smog here...

    Re: LS9 cam on the way

    An ls9 exact cam is fine to use in these cars, I just choose to modify it a little to make it better for our HEAVY cars on the zr1 "clone" cam we sell. Same as the 604 lift cam we make. It is close to specs of a zr1, except 604 lift and set up for 4600lbs instead of 3000.....

    cool. So less duration and an even wider LSA on the .604 to increase torque?

    What's the deal with the Lakers? They've been playing lousy, but Denver and Dallas are out, so hopefully they can get into the Finals, again, and take care of business.

    GO LAKERS!
