I have done a few 6.1 regrinds with some pretty impressive results. So I had Dan fix me up a 5.7 regrind.

Before and after the reground cam, same dyno. No springs are needed or a TC. So the heads can stay on, cam only install...... Tuned by S.T. MotorSports the guys that are doing all the Kenne Bell set ups.....

what did you regrind it to?
I can't give away that info sorry.

We ground it so it wouldn't need a TC and by the looks of the Dyno we are right where the stock cam was before 3000. We didn't lose anything there, but we picked up quite a bit after that.

So your now running a custom 5.7 reground camshaft?
The cams out of the 5.7 cars and 5.7 trucks are exactly the same specs 196/185 490/490 This reground cam is in my Daytona

Half of the 5.7 cam shafts I have seen are billet, the other half were the welded type and we just threw them in the round file.

Haha I asked if 5.7 cams were worth regrinding around the time I met you Lonnie lol. Man, that was a long time ago. Everyone said, "Why hell would you want to that?"

Congrats on the new find...

LOL, that's funny... Yeah, I live in Oklahoma City right now but I was raised there, Broken Arrow actually. The weather here is STILL ridiculous, couple weeks ago we had a 50 degree drop in temperature in about 12 hours. 70 one day, the next we had snow on the ground... :WHT:

Certainly miss that Northern California sunshine!

Yeh, the wide LSA is the main short coming from regrinding stock cams. The 5.7 cams are cast though not billet the other ones are steel DOM tubing with pressed on lobes.

Good numbers on the cam Lonnie.

They are cast. It's not a problem regrinding them though as long as you don't go under the heat treat. But these grinds are minimal enough in changes that it shouldn't be an issue.

Lonnie. Stu and I usually agree on more things than not. Inertia is on top of their game as well as us. I consider Inertia Motorsport's even steven with Sharadon Performance. Both sponsors pay to be on this site. Both sponsors provide the best services to their clients.
