Whats a good cam to get for towing, I'm like to have more torque down on the lower end, and changing the converter is not a problem if i need one.

Who tunes for cams also?

Thanks

Comp 212/218 .529/.532.. Makes good power, keeps your lowend, no converter required but a tt3000 would do wonders.. Also requires very little tuning if any..

I wouldn't say I gained any low end power with the 212/218, but I didn't loose any either. For all out towing I'd look into a Vinci 210/218 .551" 116 LSA.

Do any of these cam companies offer dyno sheets to prove their power numbers?

Some do, but mostly on the big high horse cams. As far as the cam I have, the average is around 300 hp to the wheels with bolt ons, so maybe 370 at the crank? IDK crank hp, thats a guess. A dyno with my cam probably looks close to a stock dyno graph CURVE wise, except with better numbers all over the chart, especially mid range and past 5500 rpm.

comp cams makes some great grinds. they offer 2 small grinds that shoud pick up torque. you do have to weigh what you want though. one cam has a 115* LSA and the other a 112*, with other specs being almost identical. the 112* will net you more torque (they even offer a 110* or maybe it was a 108* LSA if you want, cant remember and my catalog is upstairs, which will be even more solid torque). the downside of the narrow LSA's is that you will loose engine vacuum and idle will roughen up...but torque down low will go up.
