Love this cam!
Used the ST5 cam in my latest engine build with amazing results. Installation went smooth. Cam degree'd out almost perfect with the timing gears set straight up. Pulls strong to 6800rpm, and the idle sounds mean as ****. Currently making 400hp on only 9.5lbs of boost. A couple notes though, while the turbo spools quickly there is almost no power down low in the RPM range. You also need an aftermarket converter with a stall of 3000+. I wouldn't put this in your daily. Tuning wise, I only needed to raise the idle 50rpm to make it stable. Tuning the idle isn't extremely difficult, but you need access to User Defined Parameters in HPTuners or use TinyTuner. The stock closed loop idle spark tables are a little too restrictive and need to be relaxed. Misfire detection also needs to be disabled under about 1800rpm to avoid setting a CEL. The VE table needs pretty significant rework, especially in the idle area. Engine seemed to be happiest around 26 degrees of spark at idle. This cam maxed out my LQ4 maf in a hurry, so be prepared for that as well. I highly recommend the resistor mod (look it up) or ZZP's Air Fuel Controller, or maybe even both. If you aren't comfortable with doing all this yourself, please buy ZZP's tune or get a custom one done. Overall, I absolutely love this cam, and would definitely buy it again.
