cam on the way

By donman

Filed under: 2002 Pontiac Trans Am (CETA8)

I found a good deal on the GM Perfomance ASA cam. So it is on the way. I have a ways to go before I will be ready to install it, but I love the way it sounds..Tuning scares me the most, I am not by many tuners that I know of. Might have to tackle that myself also...

Received the cam, and have the valve springs ordered...slowly but surely...Also purchased a couple of books on tuning the PCM..

What a small world this is....we both have Collector TA's and we both have chosen the GM "ASA cam! I know your post is a little old now, but how far along are you with the install? Earlier this year, I put this cam in my 6spd CETA along with LS6 springs, long tube headers and a cat-back. So far I'm running on a stock tune. It sounds great with the long duration and short lift specs, but the low 110 lobe separation angle causes the stock tune to drown in gas somewhat. I know I'm probably fouling my plugs and puting gas in the oil when running on this tune. I recently purchased the HP tuner software and plan to perform my first tune. So far, haven't been able to get very far. Thanks, Daniel.
