    Default Cam Tutorial

    Does anyone have any links to some good Cam tutorials?
    What changes to your profile does, how to match a cam to valve size, CID, etc?

    I am far from a pro when it comes to cam selection, but what I found was when I called Edelbrock, Comp Cams and Lunati they were all really helpful and each had a battery of questions for me to help me with cam selection.

    Of the 3 Edelbrock was the hardest to get ahold of but I ultimatley did.

    Just tell them exactly how you are set up and what you want to achieve and they will all make specific recommendations. After talking to all three I went with Comp Cams who recommended a custom grind for me.

    Good luck!

    A tutorial is a good idea for folks who want to replace a cam for performance. Many who do this seem to over-cam and over-carb an engine, thinking that more is better, which it usually isn't :smile:
