The stage 1 225/236 camshaft represents the smallest off the shelf camshafts currently available from TSP for the LS3-based engines. This camshaft is designed to make more power than the stock camshaft , even in the lower RPM band! This camshaft is a perfect option for customers wanting a very streetable setup that has a slight lope at idle. It is the largest cam we would recommend for anyone running the factory torque converter in auto-equipped vehicles, and it is also an excellent choice for manual-equipped cars wanting maximium streetability! We recommend this camshaft for LS3 or LS2 engines using L92/LS3 rectangle port cylinder heads!

**The factory LS3 camshaft uses a single-bolt cam design, which means one bolt holds the upper timing sprocket on the camshaft. For LS3 vehicles, you can either go back in with a single-bolt camshaft or convert to the three-bolt camshaft design that the 1997-2006 LS-based vehicles use. The three-bolt conversion kit will supply the correct 4x upper timing gear to supply the correct camshaft position signal, as well as the ARP camshaft bolt kit that will supply the three required bolts. We also offer the conversion kit with a complete, upgraded timing set for those wanting to replace the entire set.**
