I can appreciate having a higher bsfc. I want the tallest part of the curve to be at 2ooo rpm, why would having a cam set up for higher performance be a benefit. I probably never ever make my car put out more than 40 horse power or what 80 ftlbs of torque at 2700 rpm, 60 mph. I can get 55 mpg with the current set up. Could care less if the car will go 80 although it will run 95 now.

Well that is my plan I can read about it or I can try it.

“There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
