Cam decision and other mods

I have been doing some research and talking to my tune guy and I'm ready to get the jeep running some better times! I ran a 12.83 @ 106 mph last Friday at the track with just a mopar cold air intake,kooks long tube headers, Corsa Catback exhaust with high flow cats, and a custom tune. Not the fastest I've seen a jeep run with the same mods but I also had 36lb of air in the tires and was spinning some. I'm looking to get into the high 11's or really low 12's. I've heard a lot of guys talk about the little boy cam which they have remade by comp since FRI isn't around anymore but I hate how it sounds stock. SRT Max Plus sounds great but doesn't make real good numbers at the track, I believe most people with the SRT Max Plus cam are running around a 12.6 which won't cut it for me. My tune guy can get a custom grind from comp that he says will perform more like a little boy or a ppp stage 2 but will also sound good and be boost friendly for whenever I save up to get a vortec or procharger or maybe even a turbo. Another question I have is Torque Converters!!! Some guys run stock, some guys run paramount. My tune man says I will feel more of difference with a cam+stall but he can build me a cam to work with my stock torque converter. What has everyone had the best luck with and what do you recommend. BTW I'm running a 1.81 60ft time

What's the deal with this lil girl cam?

And who is your "tune man"


FWIW Joe was running 12.4 with just basic bolt ons...

Just as the name applies it's a little(lil) cam that is meant to run on stock springs.

WOW mondo, those are some badass times running NA!!!! Do you have a 426 stroker? I was told 11's weren't possible without spray or a blower but you definitely proved that wrong!

Definitely won't keep the stock springs and pushrods in there Viking. I personally don't think it's smart to put a larger cam then stock and not upgrade the springs

Jay won't give out his cam specs but he assured me it would be a different style design all together compared to a comp 268 cam.
