TICK PERFORMANCE POLLUTER V1 CLASSIC CAMSHAFT FOR LS1 & LS6 ENGINES
It's hard to beat a classic! Since it's introduction to the market in 2008, the Tick Performance Polluter V1 camshaft has been well known and respected as the BIGGEST nitrous-friendly camshaft you can fit into a stock LS1 or LS6 without any piston-to-valve-clearance worries. It's been making great power, great torque and responding incredibly well to large doses of nitrous for years!

When we began testing our Polluter V1 cam in 2008, one result was a huge surprise to us: the TORQUE! This cam made 417rwhp & 391rwtq in a regular, every day cam only 2001 Camaro SS with cheap headers and an LS6 intake. No bells, whistles, dyno tricks or crazy expensive parts: the Tick Performance Polluter Cam makes great numbers and drives surprisingly well with a good tune, too.
This camshaft is designed to fit stock engine/cylinder head combinations without the need to clearance your pistons, but since it is a TIGHT fit, we require that you verify piston-to-valve clearance during install. We strongly suggest the use of our Tick/PAC Dual Valvesprings and hardened pushrods with this camshaft (sold separately.) Countless hours were spent developing this camshaft to perform precisely the way we advertise, so as a result, changes to the LSA or any other specification of this camshaft are not available.
