Roll That Ls Motor
Ever since its introduction, GM's Gen III (LS1, LS2, LS6) engine has quickly become the preferred choice among many, and right from the factory the GM Gen III engine boasts a surprisingly efficient induction design, reduced weight, and impressive power output. COMP Cams is happy to expand their Gen III performance line with their new XFI Street Solid Roller Series cams. The new XFI cams feature three camshaft profiles for applications ranging from high-performance street to high-rpm drag/road race and are specifically designed to run in '97-to-current LS1-, LS2-, and LS6-based engines with the new COMP Cams Endure-X Gen III solid roller lifters and PN 26921 dual valve springs. Engineered specifically to take advantage of the engine's phenomenal efficiency, the newest members of the XFI line of Gen III camshafts deliver some of the most aggressive lobe profiles ever been designed for street-driven Gen III-powered vehicles, and when used with COMP's FAST LSX intake manifold, massive increases in horsepower output, throttle response, and upper rpm capability are gained over the factory hydraulic roller patterns.
