    Lots of torque but it's like <280whp or something meh...

    I always thought this one was badass (ls1):

      LSx Cams are cheap, which will take care of that 280whp problem real quick.

        Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall, torque is how far you take it with you. Which would you prefer to have? lol

            How about adding a cam and getting more horsepower AND torque?

                No, but the cams are all interchangeable. Same engine, slightly less displacement.

                      It is an LS1 dyno, but that same cam would have a similar effect on the 5.3L While you wouldn't hit the same peak numbers you can expect about the same gains.

                      What I'm really trying to show is that you can get both HP and TQ gains by switching the cam.

                            That's a pretty badass cam. How does it idle? What gas does it run on? Any other tuning done? That's pretty insane... I guess a fast intake would net a good 40whp or something crazy like that on on that if it's only a cam and everything else stock (that cam specifically) thats massive gains and absolutely insane... Anyways I'm definitely set on an ls1 in the future no doubt....
