it's supercharged ls1 in my vy clubby, 6psi, 42 pound injectors, standard headers and a 2.5 x force exhaust. currently has 303kw at wheels. looking for a awesome cam for good power and nice note on idle. any suggestions on what other people have done, what extra power approx it will give me?

Blower cams have a wide LSA because overlap kills on a blower motor... too much and you send the gas mix right out the exhaust. It will work but usually you don't want to go tighter than 114. A cam for a blower motor then consider a blower cam with reverse split duration or twin duration and lift about in that range.

So something like 224/230 0.574"/0.580" LSA114 - 230/236 LSA112+4 0.596"/0.606" or even 236/243 0.600"/0.618" 114LSA but make sure you do the pushrods & Double Valve Springs rated greater than >0.620"

Only problem there is that IF you you make a decision to remove the blower that cam should be change out again... So it's up to you, even an even type cam would be OK'ish in the high 22x/Low23x but keep the LSA @ not less than 114 I have been told, heard and personally driven.

Have fun....

P.S Any "decent" LS1/LS2/LSx tuner/builder/shop worth their reputation should know about this or they are not worth it.

As Darcon suggested above, the 224/230 @114 cam is a great blower cam and also a great NA cam too. With my HTV1900 blower I'm using an Isky Racing cam 224/230 @114 609/612 lift. This is in a 3k stalled auto. I used this cam for about 12 months before the blower went on and was awesome NA. But speaking to Hi Torque (and other reputable tuners) would be your best bet so they can work out the exact cam to suit your needs.
