Im just curious about big cams and hey they would relate to fuel economy in a V8.
Since a cam would move the powerband further up in the rpm range would that mean that less fuel would be used in the low rpm range?
Or does a cam just move the efficiency range further up meaning that the engine would be inefficient (less power, same or larger amount of fuel) down low and provide more power up high where the max VE% is at?

BIG CAM and economy are two words that dont go together in the same sentence.
I was running a big-ish 248@.050 cam and fuel was the last thing on my mind and the first thing I put in my car every time I drove it.!!!!
What ever I have will never be enough !
