    cam testing

    http://www.superchevy.com/technical/...en3/index.html

    You guys should check out this site and see what you think. im kind of confused by reading it because everyone ive talked to on here says go bigger than a 220 because it is too mild but that site shows that the mildier cam posted bigger torque numbers than the more aggressive ones. the bigger cam put out about 10 more hp than the smaller one but not until redline. Wouldnt a cam with more torque and hp at lower rpms be best for a daily driven street car? i just wanted to know what you guys think........Thanks

    I just dropped a 220/224 in my goat and love it.
    just remember, super big cam and a very high peak hp number make great bragging rights, but a good setup with a smaller cam can and lower peak hp number can be a lot quicker, and more friendly to drive on the street .
    power under the curve is where its at

    just curious why did you choose the 220/224 over a 220/220 or 224/224. is there an advantage buy having more duration on the exhaust side?

    the slightly longer exhaust duration (in theory) gives the cylinder more time to clear and get thr spent gases out......plus I could get the 220/224 cam for $110
