TICK PERFORMANCE TURBO STAGE 1 V2 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.

Our Tick Performance Turbo Stage 1 V2 Camshaft is a fresh re-design, an entry-level upgrade that is intended for guys who are using a small turbine single turbocharger up to a 68mm turbine wheel. Some examples would be a TC76, TC78, MP70, MP76, ON3 70 or ON3 76 with a race weight under 3700lbs. This cam is intended to be used with a stock cubic inch motor (especially a max effort 4.8L or 5.3L!) This camshafts other intended application is a heavier truck or SUV with up to a 75mm turbine wheel such as a PT7675, 7875, Turbonetics 7675, 7875 or comparable size turbo. You won't notice much of a difference in idle, but you'll notice a big improvement when you jump on the throttle! 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.
