CompCam designed by Katech Trimmed .600 sec off my Quarter mile at Norwalk Raceway Park here in Ohio last Wednesday /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
Sounds great too coupled with the Borla XR1 Race Exhaust. Did ya ever hope the light turns red just as you approach the intersection so you could listen to the Idle?

Chris at Katech specified the cam/springs and titanium retainers...the engine specialist here in Norwalk took about 25 hours labor. Kind a funny when checking with different engine shops, most were under the impression that you had to pull the intake and the heads...Not true didn't have to pull either. Easy modification.

Hello all. I am new to the forum but I am also planning on adding the Katech LS6 Stage II head and cam package and have also spoke with Chris at Kateck. I would be interested in your cam specs as well as the actual et and trap speed that you are now pulling. With over a 1/2 second increase you are well into the 11's. I also would like to know if your redline has been raised and does this upgrade effect your gas mileage and day to day driveability when driving normally?? I know many questions from a newbie, but I am in Germany and have the only Z06 that I know of and with these mods I will be the Autobahn king up to a certain speed. Also did you get a good dyno before and after your mods. I plan on autocrossing at Nurburgring as well as many high speed runs on the Autobahn. Red Corvette in Germany will help me with some other mods I am looking at; i;e custom 6th gear for total power at high speed runs.

Thank you for the information, at least I know of others getting this same mod and getting great reults. Thanks for this forum also.

Nick

What were your times? Ill bet you have 380 or more at the wheels. Whats the cost for the parts? Did you have to reprogram the computer?

Doug, there is a lot of hp to be found by doing the heads, and with a cam it is well worth it, and as said above by the computer being reprogrammed. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Carl,

I believe the mods are about done since I have a bid in for the 50th anniversary Corvette, order spot #23 at Spitzer in Amherst, Ohio. Thats only 1 Year away. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
Just don't tell me how much better it would be with the heads... /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif For some reason the temptation is greater every time I visit the Forum... /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Doug, my engine builder is flowing a set for my 02' Z06, I do not know if we will use them on the engine in the car or on the 427. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif I will not tell you the numbers when we get them. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Can you posts your times, i.e. 1/4 mile, 0-60 , etc.?
And how much it costs?
Thanks.

How does it idle? I heard the idle is rough if you just do cam only.

CompCam....is that the same as Competition (Comp) Cams? If so, I need to make a phone call - they are one of my sponsors! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
