    good article on cams

    this is a pretty good article to read to help understand cam phases. I read this article or one similar to it a while back. I just stumbled back across it and thought some here might enjoy it and benefit from it.

    Just read the article in the link and it's a nice introduction to cams. Decent information for such a short article.

    Good information - puts everything into perspective. As much as I like a lumpy idle, I just can't imagine it for our T/A. Old school vs. new school I guess.

    a 112 lsa cam will give a nice lump idle... i had a 224/224 112 lsa cam in the last engine i had and i had some dumb ass ricer tell me "you man... your car is missfireing or something"...

    what did the 224/224 112 lsa cam do as far as power? Do you know numbers? was the power at the low, mid, or high end?

    low to mid, great all around cam for a "baby" cam. My cam is in my sig, it's on a 111 lsa and it chops pretty well, but I personally think it's very streetable
