    Hi Deplorables,
    I'm thinking seriously of following now-banned uber Poster, Pir4te's, advice from long ago and pay for a custom cam advice from PatG in Trumptopia. Then get his recommendation custom ground by Texas Speed shop and shipped here.
    Rather than read endless Cam threads everywhere.
    Thoughts?

    Up to you mate but there’s hundreds of cams out there off the shelf I’m sure you could find something suitable without having to go for a expensive custom grind unless you are very fussy and have very specific wants

    Is that Sizzle red, vr304?
    :)
    Yeah, good call. But I've never hotted up a fast car before.
    And I want to make it unique. Camshaft is expensive for me. L77 manual.
    Damn you, Holden!
    So my thinking is why not? Let's get this guru's recommend. And give it a go.
    Gotta have Faith!
    :)
    And Texas Speed sound awesome.
    I'll have to put a Lonestar sticker on her ass.
    :D

    US$25 seems a good investment, PFA

    It's gonna be Au$755 to my door including PatG Cam specs.
    Texas Speed also do the whole Cam kit w/DOD delete gear. Price looks comparable to GM motorsport kits off the shelf here. Perhaps even a little cheaper.

    Hey imoengnr,how's the Motorsport going?
    I read that whole thread over the holidays. Good stuff. Lots of laughs too.
    The MRC sounds like the shizzl.

    Don't have a Motorsport, just a Magnum, and they aren't fitted with MRC...

    Wondering whether you pulled the trigger or not?
    What core and which lobes? Who is going to make it, TSP or Cam motion?
    What is the full spec? Is it installed straight up or degreed?
    Any recommendation for other work like ^CR etc?
