TICK PERFORMANCE SNS TORQUEMAX STAGE 1 CAMSHAFT FOR LS1 & LS6 ENGINES
Tick Performance proudly offers our Elite Series of Camshafts designed specifically for LS1 & LS6 Engines! Using the latest and greatest technology available, we've put together a complete line of Camshafts that are designed to meet every goal, from mild to wild. Our Elite Series of Camshafts are all manufactured by COMP Cams or Cam Motion and are updated with a new version every time an advancement in valvetrain technology becomes available, so they're ALWAYS cutting-edge! Although we suggest measuring for piston-to-valve clearance during ANY camshaft install, every Elite Series Camshaft is designed to fit in a stock engine & stock heads with adequate clearance unless otherwise noted. These cams are designed to maximize power, reliability and valvetrain longevity.

"SNS" stands for Saturday Night Special, because this camshaft is going to turn every head at the weekend cruise-ins! This SNS torqueMAX Stage 1 Camshaft is perfect for guys looking for the lopey idle and peak power numbers of a larger camshaft without giving up any driveability or TORQUE down low in the RPM range. If power UNDER the curve is what you're looking for, this cam is for you! We strongly suggest the use of our Tick/PAC Dual Valvesprings and hardened pushrods with this camshaft (sold separately.) Hundreds of 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.
Option Guide: Do I want the Standard or the Milder Lobes?
If you want a few thousand more miles from your valvesprings and are willing to sacrifice some horsepower/torque for those miles, we also offer this camshaft with milder lobes (choose the "milder" camshaft during checkout.)
