cool Cams

Hey yo all my homies.....

Just wonderin a few questions about cams.
1) You'll talk of a "rough" idle in wilder cams, what exactly does this mean.
2) what kinds of new sounds would i get by putting in a cam
and 3) how could i make my car sound like a V-8 i got exhaust done and pod filter but i want that mad v8 grumble and stuff.....thank you

Re: Cams

1)
Wilder cam means that the valves open earlier and close later hence the rougher idle as it needs higher revs to operate smoothly. No use putting a wilder cam just for the hell of it, all depends what power you want, either top end or bottom or midrange and it varies from cam to cam.

Errrrm you own a 6 by the sounds of it. First and foremost no matter what you do, you will not get a 6 to sound like an 8. Infact i can go as far as saying getting a good note out of a 6 cylinder is the harder than a V8.
Too loud and it sounds droany and farty and too quiet it doesn't give a note.

Re: Cams

yeah you dont want to sound like a V8 - you want it to sound like a low flying jet -

wwwwwwwhhhhhhhhoooooooossssssshhhhhhh!!!!

get a turbo :D

getting a bigger cam makes the car sound a little 'gruffer' sort of, depends on what cam and if you have a chip and stuff to run it, some just sound crap because the comp is getting the fuel mixture all wrong, and it sounds sick. not "sik moit" lol just sick.
