    Default is the comp 268 blower friendly?

    I'm in the process of installing an off the shelf comp 268 grind, in my '04. At first my plan was to spray it, but the procharger system has got me thinking.
    So just curious, should i follow through with the the install or do I need to do a different cam if I want to do a blower setup down the road? Or for that matter should I just do a solid 175 shot and be done with it? opinions greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    It will work fine but there are better options. You want more split and a wider LSA...

    nahh, I'd get a custom grind specifically for FI.
    I'd say go with the 125-150 shot and call it a day if you don't want a forged motor and built trans. Our motors suck for boost past 6 ibs. The transmissions are even worse lol.

    See you are from Nashville...I still have a town home in Antioch. Might be able to meet up one day.

    Like jmgak47 said you will be fine with the 268, but like both said there is a better option(custom grind).

    Depends on what your goal is.I personally would do ForcedInduction over NOS if you are looking for everyday driving performance. I would do the 175 shot if you are mainly looking for power at the track. Factory boost for the Procharger is 7 or 8 and I still think you will be fine just for everyday driving, but like blkbee0629 said our motors(early 3rd gens) suck with boost over 6. The reason is for the gap that piston rings have against the cylinder walls.

    I was going to get the procharger at first but just did not have the money .

    If you do decide to get the procharger I will want to see it if I come down to Nashville

    Not to hurt the sale, but that's a mighty big cam for a 5.7. Its more suited for a 6.1, even a 6.4. I'd stick with the 268.

    I thought the same but I've never doubted Andy and his spec and he knew the guy had a stock head 5.7 with a P1.

    I'll double check with Andy and ask him again.
