This "Version 2" Camshaft is NEW for 2014! Tick Performance proudly presents our brand new Elite Series of Camshafts specifically for LS1 & LS6 Engines! Using the latest and greatest technology available, industry-renowned camshaft expert Martin Smallwood was able to mastermind a complete line of Camshafts that are designed to meet every goal from mild to wild. Our Elite Series of Camshafts are all manufactured by COMP Cams and feature a mixture of LXL, LSL and HUC lobes (with a few other tricks up our sleeve, as well.) Although we suggest measuring for piston-to-valve clearance during ANY camshaft install, every Elite Series Camshaft is designed to fit in a stock engine & stock heads with adequate clearance unless otherwise noted. These cams are designed to maximize power, reliability and valvetrain longevity.

Our Tick Performance Blower Stage 1 Camshaft is a fresh re-design for 2014, designed to provide a nice mid-and-high RPM range power increase and a quiet but slightly noticeable idle in Centrifugal OR Roots style supercharged applications! This isn’t just a generic “boost” camshaft that we say “one size fits all” because frankly, one size does NOT fit all with boost! We strongly suggest the use of Brian Tooley Racing Valvesprings and hardened pushrods with this camshaft (sold separately.) Hundreds of hours were spent developing this camshaft to perform precisely the way we advertise, so as a result, changes to the LSA or any other specification of this camshaft are not available.
