- What does a high lift cam do?
Increases the amount of valve opening (lift)
- Increases the period the valves are open, i.e. open sooner, shut later, (duration/timing).
The net result of this is to increase the fuel / air mixture which the pistons can draw in during the induction stroke and push out when they are exhausted.
- Advantages - more mixture - more power
- Disadvantages - Harsher idle (depending on how wild the cam is), slightly reduced low end torque.
At C&R we recommend that prior to fitting a performance cam a free flow air filter and a performance exhaust are fitted. These assist in getting more air flow in and out of the engine helping the cam to work properly.
