Tick Performance proudly offers our Elite Series of Camshafts designed specifically for 4.8L & 5.3L Engines! Using the latest and greatest technology available, we've put together a complete line of Camshafts that are designed to meet every goal, from mild to wild. Our Elite Series of Camshafts are all manufactured by COMP Cams or Cam Motion and are updated with a new version every time an advancement in valvetrain technology becomes available, so they're ALWAYS cutting-edge! Although we suggest measuring for piston-to-valve clearance during ANY camshaft install, every Elite Series Camshaft is designed to fit in a stock engine & stock heads with adequate clearance unless otherwise noted. These cams are designed to maximize power, reliability and valvetrain longevity.

The Tick Performance "SNS" Camshaft stands for Saturday Night Special, because this camshaft is going to turn every head at the weekend cruise-ins! The torque curve produced by the SNS torqueMAX Stage 3 is down-right insane and you’ll be blown away by the shape of the curve from this larger sized cam. We strongly suggest the use of our Tick/PAC Dual Valvesprings and hardened pushrods with this camshaft (sold separately.) Hundreds of hours were spent developing this camshaft to perform precisely the way we advertise, so as a result, changes to the LSA or any other specification of this camshaft are not available.
