View Full Version : comp 44-701-9 cam

im looking to replace the stock cam in my other black 90 5spd turbo "Dantenisha", the comp 44-701-9 cam is appealing to me for a turbo setup and is actually recommended by comp as a stock replacment

anyone have any experience with this cam? i seen one member 'brianas' mentioned it back in 2005ish but thats about all i can find.


204 intake / 216 exhaust
480 lift at 115 lsa

any thoughts are appreciated

from my experience in the past you want more lobe separation on a turbo car to reduce heat generation on the street. I know the cam Ken Duttwieler specced for my turbo car (v8 though) had a lower lobe separation than stock. Car runs sweet and cool (or used to)

That cam with a 115 lobe separation isnt what Id be looking for. But ask around

what??? thats sacrelig, ideally you want as minimal overlap as possible with a turbo and lean on the exhaust just a tad to aid in spool up

...what did this feller recommend for you spec wise?

I have the perfect cam and may be willing to sell it. 206/211 112lsa 553int 562exh I believe. DD speced it for my turbo build. Billet also.

I'm not looking to spin it that high, im after torque not neccessarily power, if its done by 5k thats perfectly fine by me

Lobe separation is way too wide. They did that so that no tuning would be required (stock idle speed, etc). IMO you should at least do valve springs so that you can run some more lift. For something mild like that I'd just get a regrind so that your total investment cost including pushrods and springs doesn't exceed the cost of the new cam by itself.

Pretty sure that's the same one SCP sells as the stage 1 cam, and if so it's what I had in my car. It's too mild, made 250rwhp in my car with a ported late model and a bunch of other bolt ons. Like Dave said, swap out your springs and go with a regrind, you can get away with up to .520 lift with stock valves according to the master.
