    Default Yet another cam ?

    Is it possible to grind a cam so that it idles "grandma car" style, yet will pull a Berkeley style A impeller to 5500-6000? If so, what compression/heads/combo, etc etc would be needed to pull that off?

    I think it would require NOS for what you want. Or you need a big inch motor....572 or 632. Will Idle like grandma's car and deliver more power than you can handle. Just pry open your wallet!!

    Comp cams has their XFI cams. Still have some lope, but lots of power and a looser lobe-center-angle to allow more vacuum and driveability. Also, as mentioned above, I noticed their turbo and nitrous cams have 112* or higher lobe centers.
