Tick Performance proudly offers our Elite Series of Camshafts designed specifically for LS2 Engines! Using the latest and greatest technology available, we've put together 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 or Cam Motion and are updated with a new version every time an advancement in valvetrain technology becomes available, so they're ALWAYS cutting-edge! 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.
Designed for: LS2, LQ4 and LQ9 Engines (346-364ci) with Cathedral Port Heads (as they're equipped with stock) Basic Operating RPM Range: 2400-6800 Expected Horsepower Gains: 60-80RWHP over the stock camshaft in a well-optimized setup Expected Torque Gains: 35-50RWTQ over the stock camshaft in a well-optimized setup Aftermarket Headers Required: Longtubes suggested for maximum power gains Stall Converter Required: Yes, 3600RPM+ Rear Gear Upgrade Required: Suggested for maximum performance (3.73+ for manual transmissions, 3.42+ for automatics) Works Well with Nitrous: No, designed for supercharged applications Will Pass Most Smog Emissions: No
Our Tick Performance Blower Stage 2 V2 Camshaft is a fresh re-design, well suited for max-effort LS2 applications (especially 383-408ci stroker motors), 6.0L LQ4/LQ9 motors, or 370ci motors with cathedral port heads that use either Centrifugal OR Roots-style Superchargers. Idle is more aggressive than our Blower Stage 1 offering, but still not radical. We strongly suggest the use of our Tick/PAC Dual 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.
Option Guide: Do I need the 3-Bolt Conversion Kit? In 2007, GM began installing a camshaft in select LSx engines that used one large bolt to attach the timing chain gear. All Tick Performance Elite Series Camshafts use 3 bolts to attach the timing chain gear, as the earler LSx engines used. If your engine is a 2007 or newer (or if you're not sure which camshaft style you've got), we suggest adding the 3-Bolt Conversion Kit during checkout for an extra $24.99. This Conversion Kit includes everything that you'll need to convert your single-bolt setup over to the 3-Bolt setup (the proper timing chain gear and a set of 3 ARP camshaft bolts.) If you'd prefer to retain the single bolt style camshaft (not recommended), please place your order with us via phone.
