Since every cam is a turbo cam, lol a joke that Richard Holdener often makes because ANY engine will make more power with boost regardless of what camshaft is in it, should you upgrade your camshaft on your boosted LS engine or just leave it alone and turn the boost up? I mean, more boost will make more power right? And it is way cheaper to just add more boost than it is to buy a camshaft and springs and all that. Or is it?
Watch the video and learn when a cam might make sense in a 5.3 LS with a turbo, and what the comparison is to just adding more boost.
Here is the info from Richard’s video description:
DO YOU REALLY NEED A CAM UPGRADE ON YOUR TURBO LS? IS A STOCK LS CAM PLUS BOOST EVEN BETTER? CHECK OUT THIS COMPARISON BETWEEN A STOCK LM7 CAM (WITH ADDED BOOST) AND A SUMMIT RACING PRO LS TURBO CAM. HOW MUCH BOOST DOES IT TAKE WITH THE STOCK CAM TO EQUAL THE EXTRA POWER OFFERED BY THE CAM UPGRADE? DOES THE STOCK CAM WORK WELL WITH A TURBO? DOES A CAM UPGRADE LOSE LOW-SPEED POWER, TORQUE AND RESPONSE? CHECK OUT THIS COMPARISON WHERE WE RAN THE TURBO 5.3L LS WITH A STOCK CAM & SUMMIT CAM.
