Dealer installed cam

Maybe this has been covered, but I could not find it, so I will ask. A salesman at my dealer told me that there is a corvette option when ordering a car that when it is delivered, it is taken into the shop at the dealer and a higher horsepower cheverolet cam is installed. He said that it is fully covered under warrantee and that it could be done with the camaro and "ordered" with the car (to be installed when it gets there). Does anyone have any information on this? Option codes? Horse power figures?

thanks,

Keith

That would most likely be the GM Performance Parts Hot Cam kit.
Alot of those are in fact installed at dealers, and while the hot cam itself is covered under the GMPP 24-month warranty, it does not affect the car's warranty.

For the 2010 Camaro, I would estimate a 50hp gain from the LS3 hot cam.
I say this because a normal LS3 is rated 430hp, but the GM Performance Parts LS376/480 is just a LS3 with the LS3 Hot Cam kit, and it's 480hp.

I don't know for sure, but it MIGHT be the same hot cam as the other LS engines.
Part number 88958733
Cam specs: 219/228 .525/.525 112LSA

If what Tim says is true, then that would be a very substantial 'warrantied' upgrade! Can't wait to get the confirmation on that!

BTW, welcome to the site!

That would be a nice warrantied upgrade.

I'd try slipping a little bigger cam to them while they're at it...doesn't hurt to try.

I agree with Tims analysis of the hot cam kit

we already know about the headers, CAI, and exhaust and now this hot cam swap. What other GMPPs do people recommend getting?

the hot cam for the ls1's (which are the specs posted above) has the strangest profile of any other cam. they are a little too extreme sounding and lopey imo, and the lift is higher than most aggressive aftermarket cams which makes me nervous (and alot of valvetrain noise)... im amazed they are keeping factory warranty w these. I want a milder cam like a 220/220 but theres no way theyd honor the warranty on anything but a GM product.
