They make the new 1.9 rockers, lifters and i think most of the cams for the big speed shops.

I'll confirm that.... the VS cams from ZZP are Comp Cams. Check out their website.

And a further question.... since I know nothing about cam numbers, could someone tell me how well this would work in my L36? Some of the stats listed about the Ebay cam seem a little incomplete, but here'* a comparison of the cam on Ebay vs. Intense Stage 1X cam:

Comp Cam on Ebay: .512 lift, 115-degree lobe separation angle, 210 degrees of intake duration and 220 degrees of exhaust duration

Intense Stage 1X: duration @ .050": 212/216, lobe lifts: .327"/.321", valve lifts with 1.60:1 rocker arms: .523"/.514", lobe separation angle: 113, intake centerline: 109

So how do these compare? Looks like the Comp Cam has fewer degrees of intake and more degrees of exhaust, but what does this tell me? The valves are open longer?

Twister, I'm a little confused about your post... the stats I listed for the Stage 1X cam were the normally-aspirated cam..... I just wanted to know if that Comp Cam would work in an L36, and how it would compare in performance to the Intense unit. I don't really know how to interpret all those numbers, so I need a little translation!

BTW Twister, I don't mean I'm going to steal that Comp Cam out from under you if you were planning to bid on it. However, I might make a stab at it.... I've wanted a cam for a while, and if it works in an L36 I'll try to pick it up.

Zoomer works with Comp Cams on all his cams and all of them are made by comp cams too.

Bignews, I dont plan on purchasing it, but you should, and tell us how it works in your car. An L36 is going to be Natural Aspirated, so yes it will work in your car. Im just saying there are different levels of Cams you can get, to compliment the different mods you have done to your car. But most likely, you will have to get the tid-bits that go with this cam for install and to beef up your internals.
