Re: Cam stuff

My limited knowledge, the more LSA the broader the range of the cam.

Re: Cam stuff

Generally speaking.

Tighter LSA:

More cranking compression which makes the engine feel better on part to full throttle.
Worse idle quality
More peak hp and tq

Wider LSA
Smoother Idle
Broader cam rev range
Less peak hp
More suited to NOS or boost
