    I see from your description you are running (Saleen SC Stage 3 with 3.0 pulley).

    Just so you know the Brenspeed Detroit Rocker cams come two ways.

    1-for S/C applications.

    1-for Non S/C applications.

    I have ran them and know many other guys that have ran them over the years in both applications.
    They are an easy cam to live with.

    I tried a great many cams in mine over the years as I kept changing/modifying mine.
    The Detroit Rocker Cams I di like when I ran them.

    Todd,

    I think you will enjoy those.
    Like I said I ran them and a close buddy of mine runs them with his Paxton S/C.
    A lot of guys have ran them back when Brenspeed 1st introduced them to the market.
    They sound better than stock cams which is a plus.
    Especially if a person is running the more straight through exhaust.

    Seems as I recall the power with them comes on around 3,000 to 3,500 Strong !!!

    Enjoy,
    Terry

    Well my man just making a (Guess) I'd say those were for the Normal Aspirated Engine.

    Not the S/C Cams ..........

    Just for those interested you actually can run either set of the Detroit Rocker Cams if you started out with No-Supercharger and then Up-Graded to a S/C.

    Well buddy,

    When I saw the pictures I thought you were showing me that Brenspeed (Marked-Out) the S/C part #.

    Meaning they were (Not) the S/C cams but the Normal Aspirated Cams.

    After reading your New Posting ...........
    I take it that Brenspeed (Actually) was Marking that Box so they and you knew they were the S/C Cams !!!

    Honestly buddy it is somewhat confusing to be Matter-of-Fact about it.

    ONLY, Brenspeed knows and Hopefully the Customer which Detroit Rocker Cams they really are in the box.

    Terry

    Thanks the plan is to go up one pulley size when I change out the cams. Stock bottom end so trying to stay around the 500 at the wheel power level.

    Todd,

    Just as a Heads-Up buddy.
    Stay around that power or maybe a little less.
    Especially if your Drag-Racing with Drag-Radials which put a Real-Load on the Bottom-End.
    I'm telling you as a car buddy that unless you have a pretty darn good reserve of monies and the engine ,stock engine, puts a rod through the side of the block.
    Your going to have some really super costly repairs.

    Yes I'm maxed out on what I want on the stock rods/pistons. I mostly run on the road course with an occasional trip to the 1/4 on street tires. At some point I'll build it. I've got 40k miles on my current setup, always use good gas and the tune I'm running is safe.
