Cam opinions for Rushmore 103

have a 2015 RGS, wanting to do cams. Looking for bottom end power, from idle up to 4K'ish. looking for opinions, cams I have been hearing to get are Woods 222 or 555, Andrews57 and S&S 551. Anyone have good/bad experience with these, other suggestions welcome. I plan on replacing the cams, lifters, pushrods and bearings

I put Drago’s 580 cams in my 2012 103” used his 2-1 pipe and TTS tuner:

105HP/115TQ

I was happy

Woods 222. Andrews 48h. S&S 551. All 3 of these will work well for you. If you go with s&s. You will not need the "easy starts". Because you already have acr's.

If you go with the S&S cams, use the eazy starts and turn the ACR's off. The easy start works a lot better than the ACR controlled by the ecm.

I swear by Feulings cam, I run a 525 Reaper in my 2011 96 inch motor but for a 103 the 543 Reaper is a solid performer, but if you want under 4k many people I know have gotten excellent low end with the 525 in a 103, my go to cam, good luck on your choice.

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!

I had the s&s 551's in my 12 RGC. They pull very well from 2-4k. They always left me wanting a little more. So many to pick from, I if I were doing it again I would pick the andrews 48 because it hangs on just a little longer to maybe 4500.

All great cams choices and proven, but don't sleep on those Andrews Cams, solid torque monsters......comes on early and pulls like a freight train....Big fan of Andrews
