Simple question, cam or rockers?

I was thinking of taking out my 1.8 rockers and adding a cam. What one do you guys think is better?

What's better? Cam. That's a silly question. What's easier and a decent gain up top? Rockers.

I agree with eagle. Ditch the gtp and buy an f-body. Do a lid, headers and exhaust and be much faster then what you currently have.

Plus that whole respect thing you'll gain.....

I'm not. This guy seems to have no clue on what he's doing. He'd be better off running a fairly stock f-body then his modded up Gp. :dunno:


But for sure cam is better. But this guy should do rockers.

Oh he does? Didn't notice. How's he got belt slip?? He should work on that tune and get some more timing and leave 3.2 on.

Now apearing in Hanover Park
The first hit will be that he has ported exhaust manifolds, and a 3" dp listed in the sig that also has pacesetters that replace both of the above...also two tunes listed...... at what I assume your your mod level to be, I'd go cam, but reading you sig I have trouble figuring out what you actually have on the car

He has 3 tunes listed. Sounds like he's got pacesetters, ported blower, 1.8 rockers and full I/C

Well, I'd stay with what you've got and save the $$$. Take a serious look at the economy.

But if you absolutely MUST, I'd leave the rockers, do some head work (perhaps 105# springs and/or larger Stainless Steel valves with Titanium retainers). This way you can tune it. If you still wanted to do more, go intercooled or try a ZZP phenolic spacer to decrease the incoming temperature.
