    White man in the banana patch? Look the cam companies that MAKE these sticks can dial you IN with a perfect match after you give them ALL your combination's to them. Straight up, yo'!!

    Do yourself a favor and call Comp Cams and let them spec out a cam for you and them look for the one they recommend on eBay. I bought it for way less than they wanted for it directly from them. I did that and it was one of the best things I could have done for my car.

    Cam profiles are very different..... You have a lot to consider. 1st is a spell check course..... Then.... natural aspiration. Turbo, Super charger. Fuel injection. Vehicle weight. Head flow. Tq converter if automatic needs to match..... Where you want your rpm range.... advance or retard cam timing.... The list goes on and on....
