Since his start here at Tick Performance, industry-renowned camshaft expert Martin Smallwood has impressed MANY critics with both the Tick Performance Elite Line of Camshafts (that he was the brains behind) and many custom camshafts for applications that have delivered eye-popping results for everything from daily driven street cars all the way up to 2,000+ horsepower turbo racecars. If you're wanting an aftermarket camshaft but aren't quite sure what direction to go in, contact Martin here at Tick Performance for an honest, solid opinion. You'll be happy with your results - you can bet the house on it!
How does it work?
That's it! We'll do the rest. COMP Cams grinds all of our custom camshafts and then ships directly to you, the customer. This process generally takes 2-5 business days. You'll be updated via email as soon as your tracking number is available! As always, contact us with any questions you may have.
NOTE: Due to the application-specific nature of Custom Camshafts, we do not accept returns on them and once an order has been placed and COMP begins the grind, it cannot be canceled.

I was looking for a street cam that would pass strict CA emissions, run through cats/stock exhaust manifolds, retaining a sleeper-stock idle and drivability. Originally I was going to put an 2002 LS6 stock cam in but decided to have Martin design one for me.
Many folks on the LS1Tech bashed the theory that this could be possible on a relativiely stock 2002 WS6 A4 car - well Martin proved them wrong - again. Martin understands cam design from mild to wild.
Although I have LS6 heads on the car, I do not have headers or a stall. The car has a stock stall and pulls very hard through Low-Mid- High end of the power band. The car is a true "sleeper" and has suprised everyone I know. The car is an absolute blast to drive.
Many thanks to Martin & Tick Performance for helping me through the process of customizing a cam and putting a smile on this old man's face!
I would highly recommend having Martin spec you your cam. just tell him your goals and let him do the rest!

Let me start off by saying that buying an off-the-shelf cam makes no sense when Tick Performance and cam expert Martin Smallwood will design a custom cam for you at the same price. The design will take into account your specific engine details, stall speed, car weight, and most importantly your goals and preferences.
I'm very active on ls1tech.com (as "mrvedit") and read nothing but praise for Tick Performance.

Martin is amongst the gods of cam speccing. He's known nationwide and has innovative lobes that beat the outdated off the shelf stuff any day of the week. Best of all, he designs it just for you. Your needs. Your goals. Not what the general populus might want. He is, and always will be, my go to guy for anything cam (and for that matter anything LSx) related. Thanks again bud. - Brian

Martin was a great help. He helped me choose my custom camshaft and explained everything about it. Everything he said was true. I appreciate the help. Tick performance will surely be my head start to by any performance product in the future.

Martin took a lot of time and spec'd me an awesome cam, he answered questions via Facebook after hours, and helped in every way, he not only told me what would be best, he backed his reasons with facts. He is very thorough in his explanation as to why you should or should not do things a certain way. I cant rave enough about what a wonderful experience I had, I will never purchase another shelf cam unless martin says thats the best one. Tick performance, give this man a raise!
