TSP Gen 5 L83 5.3L (Version 2) Stage 3 Camshaft:
222/236 .610"/.610" 113 LSA, 110 ICL w/ +10% Fuel Lobe
The Texas Speed & Performance L83V2-Stg3 camshaft is our newest version of our already popular L83 camshaft lineup. We were able to redesign the lobes for less lift and more power than our previous version. Not only will the new version be easier on the valve springs but the valvetrain noise will be much quieter too! This camshaft is a great choice for the enthusiast looking for maximum horsepower and a Hard Chop! Due to the nature of this cam it will require an aftermarket torque converter. It does not retain the factory AFM/DOD functionality that deactivates cylinders, so a DOD/AFM delete kit will be needed.
