Love the cam. No loss of low end at all. It picked up 20 ft lbs off idle or so. When the car is warm I even get some lope when I let off and decel but none at startup since the idle is a little higher. It's very mild but it's nice to have a little reminder once in a while.
No, it's not lopey. It's hard to quantify the exact increase due to the cam alone, since it synergizes with other mods that improve flow through the engine--CAI, porting, headers, etc. But the ballpark sounds about right. The other characteristic not mentioned is the engine continues to make power right up to and through the stock redline, so the rev limit can be raised nominally with better valve springs.
Automobile(s): 2010 TG sedan, 6A,LPE 650, and a few more mods.

Did you read the entire string?
Also, don't limit your research to CTS-v, as you should also look into LS3's with 1900TVS blowers on them, like in Camaro's and other vehicles. Just stay within the LS3/LSA/L92 engine family, or at least with these heads, to get a reasonably close comparison.
