cam shaft


Internal Combustion Engine

a: The cam shaft ~
b: The keystone at the top of an arch

What: "Now you're asking too much in my opinion.. The cam shouldn't be spec'd out until you have your combination completely planned, have all of the pertinent info, and cylinder head flow numbers. The cam shaft is like the keystone at the top of an arch. It's the final piece of the puzzle that has to fit everything. Once you know for sure what C.I. you're building and with what compression, heads, converter, weight, gears, tire sizes, TRUE vehicle intentions, etc... then we can more accurately discuss cam specs. Or at least point you in the right direction. There's a few true wizards out there if you can get in touch with them!!"
