Just bought some Doug Thorley shorties for my ride will pick up on Sat, cant wait. Now I can have my cam installed, heads ported and headers installed, I'm so excited.
When you mean degree it, are you going to move the cam 6 degrees from top dead center or are you talking about advancing or retarding the timing? Mine has been running pretty good so far and I went Top Dead Center with mine.
Again when ever I actually get on a dyno for a tune it will be pretty cool to compare notes for everyone else on our builds. Are you planning on hitting the track? I know I will be as soon as I feel comfy with the car. Right now there is way to much tire spin. I don't even turn off ESP, I don't need to. darn thing spins every chance it gets it seems. Launching will need to be re-learned when you get your cam in.
heck the other day I took off got rolling floored it and she chirped the tires giong into second, car started going sideways, just barely but it did. You are not going to regret this cam, it is suprisingly has alot more power. Now if I could just scrounge up enough for DRP's rear end, I'd be set pretty good for the track.
See attachment belowhere's what I found pretty much the same
Open at 15.0 deg BTDC
Close at 268.0 deg ATDC
Duration(probably at .006" lift) 283.0 deg
Open at 251.0 deg BTDC
Close at 35.0 deg ATDC
Duration(probably at .006" lift) 286.0 deg
.570"/.550" lift int/exh
The lobe seperation equates out to just under 118 degrees, so it is somewhere in the range of 117 to 118 degrees.
Now i don't know what all it means but maybe someone can explain to use all this jargon about cams?
thanks for the awesome post reps comming your way.
So in comparison to a spartan cam what is the stock 6.1 cam if you have the numbers? or even the numbers between a 5.7L stock cam and the 6.1L cam is what I really want to know the differences of?
