Just got back from HPE in Houston Texas. Before my trip down there my car had: K&N CAI, SW Catless LTs, Corsa Cat Back. The car baselined at 360/360 while still on the stock tune. I had HPE install their C-Cam and a ASP UDP. The car sounds absolutely amazing. On the way home I got 4 compliments on how the car sounded at stop lights, lol. Ill get into the good stuff. Chuck made 415/387 with the car. The car gained 55 hp and 27 ft. lbs of torque. Overall im pleased with the car, it did exactly what I was expecting out of it.

Big thanks goes out to Mike and Steve at HPE. These are some of the nicest guys I have dealt with. I called 2 days ago and they made this happen that fast. Also they took me to my hotel and picked me up the next morning. Huge thanks to the guys at HPE. World Class Customer Service!!!

Here is a pic of the before and after cam!!

Where did you get your cam from? Cost? Will this cam be big enough when you go with a serious set of heads?

HPE was running a special for the month of September. For the cam, springs, retainers pushrods, install , and tune came up to be $1500.00. Awesome deal if you ask me. Two thumbs up to the guys at HPE!!

I just wanted to add that im really happy with the car. Everytime I start the car i get a big ol SEG on my face and it never stops. I dont even listen to the stereo anymore, lol. In the past 2 days ive gotten so many compliments on how the car sounds then I have since I bought the car. Every LSX car needs a cam in it!!!

Was this the new C cam grind, or the older one?

Based on the graph and how recently this was done, I'd guess the new one.
