    12s NA are going to be really tough and still be streetable. 13s, those are doable but 12s are stretching it NA. abbotts NA cam is a solid NA cam and the most popular, but you are going to need way more than that to hit your goals

    sorry to rain on your goals there, just trying to help you realize what it would take

    Yea for 12's you would need a big custom grind cam, heads, and a lot of weight reduction. Now if your willing to add a little shot of spray, things will seem a lot more easy.

    |freakv6 12:22| you can pace, then maybe you can drive the car afterwords

    12s will need ALOT of lift and a very tight LSA, with a good bit of duration.

    and you might want to pull your interior out while you're at it.
