Tick Performance proudly offers our Elite Series of Camshafts designed specifically for LS2 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 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.

For years, the Polluter V1 was our flagship camshaft (sold only for LS1 & LS6 engines), known and respected industry-wide as a maximum effort heavy-hitter that absolutely LOVES nitrous. Our brand new Street Heat Stage 3 POLLUTER Camshaft for LS2 Engines successfully carries on the Polluter name and mixes it with the newest, most advanced technology available! The result? HUGE power gains, impressive valvetrain longevity and surprisingly good street manners (with a good dynotune, of course.) This camshaft (like all of our Elite Series Camshafts) is designed to fit stock engine/cylinder head combinations without the need to clearance your pistons, but since it is a TIGHT fit, we require that you verify piston-to-valve clearance during install. We strongly suggest the use of our Tick/PAC Dual Valvesprings and hardened pushrods with this camshaft (sold separately.) Countless 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.
Option Guide: Do I need the 3-Bolt Conversion Kit?
In 2007, GM began installing a camshaft in select LSx engines that used one large bolt to attach the timing chain gear. All Tick Performance Elite Series Camshafts use 3 bolts to attach the timing chain gear, as the earler LSx engines used. If your engine is a 2007 or newer (or if you're not sure which camshaft style you've got), we suggest adding the 3-Bolt Conversion Kit during checkout for an extra $24.99. This Conversion Kit includes everything that you'll need to convert your single-bolt setup over to the 3-Bolt setup (the proper timing chain gear and a set of 3 ARP camshaft bolts.) If you'd prefer to retain the single bolt style camshaft (not recommended), please place your order with us via phone.
