not trying to come of bad but if you look in tech or search there have been alot of very recent "cam" topics with alot of discussion that might help you out.

It's also a top end power cam. I find that it really doesnt pull hard until after 3000RPM or higher. DOwn low, it's a little "lacking" in torque

Kinda why you shouldn't put one in a heavy car or an AOD.

Picking a cam strictly for lope is like marrying a woman for her chest. It's gonna impress your friends, but in the long run you'll pay for it.

Depends. List your entire combo. You gotta choose your cam based on the combo and car. Is it a 5-spd? What gears do you have?

TFS1 is a good cam, but there are other good cams out there as well. Nothing wrong with the B303 if your car is a stick with 3.73's out back.
