Mostly factual
No mention of Valve to Valve clearance which is important with high TDC lifts on overlap when both valves are open.
I don't agree with the data presented about exhaust flow ratios but that is just my opinion VS his and our respective experience.

Good read, and its not some company trying to push their cams on you. Just good solid info.






For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.
