    Just after anyone's opinion on a 219/227 112lsa cam with +.600 lift. was set on a 220 cam but unsure now. car is daily m6. i do know stock heads prefer split duration but would 227 be too big for daily duties? Any opinions greatly appreciated

    For a manual on daily duties the 219/227 cam should be fine even ok on fuel but the 112lsa will give it quite a cammy idle if thats what you want.
    A split cam like yours would be similar 222 to 224 straight up cam so pretty close to the 220 cam you wanted.

    hey mate i got 238/240 .605 .609 112 in my VX SS daily driver and its no trouble at all but mine is an auto with 3000 stall convertor so that makes it easier to creep around town. nothing beats the feeling of a big camed V8

    I have used that cam in 4 cars now, 2 LS1's and 2 L98's all autos with stock stall converters.

    That cam is not too big for daily duties, will be good on fuel with a nice idle, good manners and pull well to 6300rpm.

    FYI it has 607 lift on intake and 614 on exhaust.

    Here is a clip of it idling in a l98
