LS Camshaft Cores

camshaft cores


Cam Motion is known for superior quality products. We also appreciate that, for some enthusiasts, pricing is a major factor in choosing parts. With Cam Motion, you have options. We offer 3 steel alloy camshaft core choices to fit different applications. This is an extension of our commitment to make sure that our LS customers can get exactly what they want in a camshaft.

5150 Induction Hardened Chromium Camshafts

Induction hardened 5150 steel alloy camshafts are the standard camshaft that most all of our competitors sell. While it is not the best available, 5150 camshaft are what GM uses and are perfectly fine for most applications if proper care is taken to finish the lobes properly. We offer 5150 camshafts options for milder applications.

8660 Induction Hardened Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum Camshafts

Induction hardened 8660 steel alloy camshaft cores have a superior alloy to the 5150 cam cores. 8660 camshafts are a step up over the 5150 cam cores. We offer 8660 camshafts for most applications.

8620 Carburized Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum Camshafts

Cam Motion's standard LS camshaft cores are our 8620 Carburized Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum steel alloy camshafts. Our 8620 camshafts are a superior alloy to the 5150 cams and these cores also endure a more involved oven hardening process. This hardening process creates more durable wear surfaces on the lobes while maintaining the desirable ductility characteristics of the the 8620 alloy. The final product is a camshaft that is stronger with a more durable wear surface. Our 8620 cams are a superior product that are used in Top Fuel Dragsters, Funny Cars, Pro-Stock and more. The 8620 camshafts are available for all LS applications except VVT equipped engines.


Our pricing for these 3 different cam core choices from Cam Motion is as follows:

  • 5150 - $389.00
  • 8660 - $419.00
  • 8620 - $449.00
  • Gen 4 VVT 5150 - $429.00
  • Gen 5 LT 5150 - $449

When you want superior quality, accuracy and performance for your LS or Gen 5 LT engine, get a Cam Motion camshaft.
