This sharp LS3 Camaro had visited our shop before for the 5th Gen Camaros of the Carolinas events…and finally couldn’t ignore a cam install any longer! The car already has several unique appearance mods, and it was time to back up the looks with a better sound and more power.
We added our 545 camshaft, wanting to install something that sounded mean but also drove very well. We wanted to make sure it would turn more heads at car shows – so we also added QTP electric cutouts to amp up the sound and make for easy opening from inside the car. To go along with the cam, we also added our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install Kit, along with a Melling 10296 oil pump to ensure it would have appropriate oil pressure. To combat the normal oil consumption issue that the LS’s have, we also added one of our catch can kits – not only will it trap oil, but it is also a great looking show piece also!
Baselining at 377rwhp & 388 ft lbs of tq with an intake and headers gave us plenty of room for improvement. We were able to find another 90 rwhp & 43 ft/lbs of torque with the 545 camshaft and tuning as well! Not only did this make a huge difference in power, but the sound really gets your heart pumping as well!
“Hey Kelly, The car is AWESOME!”
