i locally found a cam for this engine build. it is edelbrock brand cam and lifter kit w/ edelbrock double roller timing chain and gear set. for $120. it is in194- ex214 dur. in.398 - ex.442 lift. lsa is 112 but it sounds like the right cam for my setup and its cheap and name brand. is edelbrock cams good? the numbers sound small on the intake but maybe 1.52 rockers would help a little? as long as geometry is good? would this cam be compareable to or better for my build goals than the summit #2 cam i was considering? the purchase value is with the edelbrock in my eyes. dont want to make a mistake.

Later this year I'll be starting a CTSV build and it may be in the 10 second range, but that's not really a goal, my main intent is to provide a reasonable clone to a SCCA CTSV except with a full interior.

I don't go to the 1/4 mile track much so I build for the street I do drive on. Many people on here think that's stupid and I understand their POV but I'd rather have a car I can use anytime I want than a trailer queen.

Just jabbing ya I do drive the 69 all the time but I can appreciate trailer queens also. Seems the older I get I like them all.

I even find myself liking the ricer stuff with the turbo's.

nice price tag too!

I'll be using a 06-07 model, right before the price got outrageous, still an LS2 and 6 speed which isn't a bad base to start with- and 4 doors and leather (without a truck bed).

I'll post pics in a few days, I cant upload pics from the ****ty phone I have but I should be getting a new iphone 5 in a few days so I'll take pics then and maybe a video too if I can figure it out.

My car list is:

'78 Bobcat in 4 colors with a "semi circle track" engine that is running lower compression for 87 octane. (9.8SCR, 140lbs cranking compression), when it gets warm I have all the parts to swap EDIS on it as well as "bike carbs".
'78 280Z in black epoxy primer (waiting for warmer weather to sand and paint) currently has a modified stock L28 and 5 speed, working on a sbc 302 and T5 that is about 2/3's done
'72 Cutlass has a rebuild and modified TH350 mated to a rebuilt and modified Olds 350, only thing it needs is to be stripped down to steel and repainted, which I'll probably send out to have done.
'09 Silverado 2500HD 6.0L 6 speed auto- the only thing I have changed on it is the tires, wiper blades, and oil (my "I dont have time to mess with it" car)

My new job starts Monday which came with a 18k/yr pay raise which will help fund the CTSV build but I'll probably trade the truck in for it when I buy it.

Save some money for rearend mods. The 1st GEN CTS-V's have glass rearends. Nice cars though.
