cam question

will a ef or el cam drop into a ea? do they have the same base circle measurement or did they change it?
was wondering because it might be a nice cheap go fast bit.

not sure about cam, but head does...this way you get better flow as well...especially if you install dual runner manifold

If you got yaself an EB s-xr6 NON smartlock computer youd see a nice gain

With the cam itself youll probably lose power somewhere only to gain it in a different place
