NEW for 2019! Tick Performance proudly introduces our Economy Series of Camshafts designed specifically for 1999 and newer GM LS Truck Engines! Similar to our Elite Series camshafts, our Economy Series of Camshafts are all manufactured by Cam Motion and are updated with a new version every time an advancement in valvetrain technology becomes available, so they're ALWAYS cutting-edge! The beauty of our Economy Series of Camshafts is that they are low lift, therefore they can be used with factory pushrods and lower cost drop-in valvesprings, such as GM LS3, PAC 1218 or 1219 or COMP 26918. These cams are designed to maximize power, reliability and valvetrain longevity.

This is a brand new camshaft grind for 2019! The torqueMAX Stage 3 is part of our brand new ECONOMY Series of Camshafts for 1999+ GM LS Truck Engines.

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.
