Too much cam is NO GOOD for the street. BTDT and went to a Kent 266 from a Vizard VP7.Anybody want to offer any advice? Any real life examples?
My kid's Mini is down getting it's too much cam replaced with something that lets the car idle and not foul the plugs after 30 miles.
I did the larger rim flow valves in a ported head. $500 pasted to the valve cover would have done the same thing. No real noticable improvment but the gas mileage did improve.
I run 30 overbore. Kent 266 cam, Weber DCOE, aluminum flywheel, and an adjustable timing belt setup.
It's not a race car but it sure is fun on the local highway from red light to red light. :)
A little combo of both urethane and rubber on a 1" lowered suspension with a 3/4" sway bar and it handles real nice too.
I do run out of power at the upper end, say 85-90 miles per hour but how ofter do you maintain speeds like that? I can cruise all day at 80 mph, and I have. It is also very comfortable at 40 mph, and it idles at 600 rpms.
