Now that I have headers and 6.1 springs in place, if I ever changed the cam again
(no plans to) I would not pull the heads. The lifters lay a lot more horizontal than the old-school V8's so I would trust magnets to hold them away. I do miss the old motors where you pull off the intake and all the pushrods and lifters are sitting right there.

I'm running the cam I got from Powerwagon896 Super Spartan in my 5.7 and it's a beast! Very Streetable and a TON of torque whenever you want it!

Set your rev limiter to 6700 RPM, get those 3.06s in, slap on some 25.7" M/T Drag radials & hang on. Come out of the chute in drive, then slap the shifter left to hold 2nd gear in autostic. het that MTCM sorted out, hold 2nd gear for a 6500-6600 RPM shift to 3rd (you'll have to time this shift about 500 RPM below that point to get the shift @ 6600 RPM) & hold 3rd all the way to the traps.
If you get the car down near 4000# & your tune is right, you should be knockin' on the 11 second club's door.
i have the ss cam 112lsa with inertia performance heads and stu's tune. i just now started running it a little harder since i just got thru with the break in stage. I got a new 5.7 motor from him as well i cant wait to get it down to stu to have it dyno tuned for a peace of mind. the email tune runs great though, it feels like it has a ton of power.

What is is basically is a Comp 268 on steroids. Same basic duration but a more agressive opening ramp on the lobes & a bit more lift.
It was supposed to be 216/220, but it came out to 215/219 @ .050" lift. Lobe lift is 3.40"/3.39 respectively IN/EX netting .561/.570 @ the valve, 113 LSA & ICL is 111. (these spec's came from the cam card) There is minimal but adequate (IN) PTV clearance @ TDC on th EX/IN cycle when plugged in straight up.
The whole idea was to achieve the mid range TQ of a "bigger" cam W/O sacrificing the low/midrange TQ of the Comp 268 class cam. Max HP is @ 6250 RPM W/a flat power band to about 6600 RPM.
The cylinder cranking pressure is in the 230# range yet W/a .030" head deck reduction (.035: quench) it takes lots of spark advance in stride. (bear in mind that I run a 160* TSTAT @ the track & on the dyno to combat detonation @ the low end)
& the ICL is escapes me but there is minimal but adequate PTV clearance @ TDC on th EX/IN cycle when plugged in straight up.
By Golly 235# Was Not Far Off!
The drivability is excellent & it barely give's up the fact that the car does not have a stock cam due to a well mannered 750 RPM idle.
Fuel economy is also great W/25+ MPG @ interstate speed W 3.23 gears in the diff. It's a good moderatye grind that is a compromise between drag strip & DD performance.
The numbers in my sig were achieved W/this cam.

Im kicking myself right now thinking if I went with this cam I could be in the 11 second club......
