    I agree with said above, I dont think a stall would feel much different to the wife unless she is launching the car or just simply has a lead foot at low speed.

    That's my point. Because duration at .050" is the standard, why not calculate the overlap using those figures so that it's relevant?

    I have a 2800 Yank and don't even know its there. I'm sure a 3200-3600 would not be too much different. You already have the power adder so why a cam? Good Luck -Dave

    people look at things differently to achieve the desired results. it was harvey crane himself that developed using .050" to compare different manufacturers cams to one another. specifically because cam manufacturers advertised durations are determined at different lift points.

    yep, there are plenty of other vendors with cams for turbos. hopefully, some others will finally chime in and start recommending some like you have. but, if he insists on keeping a stock converter, then a 225/225 will be too large.

    you will not like the Zo6 cam (too small for meeting your goals). I would consider going bigger. 228-232 range on a 114-112 lsa, and between a .580-.590 lift. good daily driver cam...

    Suggested reading. Here is an article by David Vizard who has written several books and done a lot of research. If you are new to the subject, the basics are all here. His book on cams and valve trains is excellent and he explains things very well when he writes.

    will it work? sure. it'll start up, run, and drive. your limitation is wanting to keep the stock converter.

    it's a toss up. some will tell you to use a reverse pattern type with a turbo. most aren't doing that anymore.
