    Default Cam too big

    Would a 242/242 609"lift not sure of lsa, could be 112 be to large for a stock 5.7L engine. Got a friend who had one fitted and is definitelly not happy with the end result.

    its even worse to be bullshitted to by a supposed tuner/workshop as well. And then be left in the lurch.

    I have done numerous cams like that and have owners want them roughed up more. Certainly can help remotely. Thats a big part of my business focus.

    from what I understand the tuner has just whacked the biggest cam he could into this car. then done a CLSD mafless tune. This car does not like stoich. Seen this car on dyno at WOT, shocking AFR's as well.
