Default Thrasher Cam

Finally installed it. If you have the time and $ cam beats rockers hands down. Killed the mileage around town, but the highway is almost the same. Now the next thing is exhaust, stage 2 heads and beef up the trans. Poor tires just smoke and the trans scratches the trires pretty good on the 1-2 shift with the thrasher shift kit on the #2 setting. It even pulls hard in the upper rpm range in 3rd gear.

I hear great things about this cam - assuming the valve train is properly upgraded. I noticed your signature lists a Thrasher trans. Do you have a shift kit or actual heavy duty performance transmission from them?

Thrasher cams kick serious arse. My buddy just put one in his Regal GS this past winter, I love it and so does everybody else. The numbers he puts up on the dyno and at the track are just insane!

That is a great stock time! Did you post that that even better time/trap might be opssible witht the car?

The white with the tint is looks awesome too - are those stock wheels for 2003?

I am partial to black on black/grey -both my GTP and SSEi are this color scheme

If you have stock heads 3800 performance has an install kit. Has special retainers, seals and springs for the install. Love the cam, just need the idle bumped up alittle. Very lopey and sets the check engine light for misfires. But the pull in the upper rpms is great. And that didn't help the stock trans. Which is why I now have a thrasher thans.

Yeah, I'm really happy with the stock ET'* this car put down, I know I can knock it down more and I almost had a line on some Hoosier Quick Times last weekend, but that didn't happen. I probably won't get it to the track again stock. :(

I actually don't have tint, it just looks that way from the picture, I probably won't get tint until some time next year, I gotta put my money in the motor first. Yep, the wheels are a stock option on 2002-2003 SLE'* and SSEi'*.

I love the lope of the Trasher cam, the misfire codes it sets are just halarious, my friend had to have his idle turned up too, if it was me I would have left it. I like a cam that lopes so bad it sounds like the car is about to stall! The power that cam puts up top is just nuts!
