Larger cams are available. Call for specs.

Power Ranges: These are the "sweet spot" in the power range. Generally we suggest shifting at 300-500 RPM above the "sweet spot" for the best ET's. If you need more power above the shown power range, select the next larger camshaft. If you need more power below the shown power range, select the next smaller camshaft. If you keep your foot in it, they will pull well past their sweet spot.

Spring Warning: Our camshafts are not comparable to other manufacturers and require special valve spring pressures to operate and live satisfactorily. ONLY USE our springs, most other springs will not work properly and may cause severe damage. Valve spring pressures and installed heights are supplied with each camshaft.

 Computer Change: Hand held tuners like the Diablo or SCT (HUG SCT3200HUG SCT3200AHUG SCT3200B) that we offer are a performance part and will improve any engine combination they are used with. See SCT Tuner Tech Article for more information.
