Another previous customer of ours, this car’s owner fell in love with our ‘545′ camshaft after hearing it at our 5th Gen Camaro Dyno Day, and knew he wanted it as an addition. Since he is also planning a positive displacement type blower in the future, we knew the cam would be perfect for now, as well as later!
This car came in at 413 rwhp & 413 ft/lbs tq, featuring a cold air intake and a set of Kooks headers. We kept the install simple, adding our 545 cam, our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install kit, a Melling 10296 oil pump, and also upgraded the rockers with a COMP Trunion Upgrade kit.
The new cam really woke up the idle – making it sound a lot more aggressive! Final dyno numbers showed 467 rwhp & 433 ft/lbs tq, which we were happy with – especially considering the car still had a stock exhaust (which necked down considerably after the collectors). With a full Kooks exhaust, we would expect another 10rwhp or so – easy! Total gains from the cam alone were 54 rwhp & 20 ft/lbs tq.
