The Kent TH5 has a power range from 2,200 - 7,000 rpm so with the cam
advanced (I was wrong earlier) should pull down a bit lower. However, if you
consider the A-Series 276 cam has a power range from 1,500 - 7000 you can
begin to imagine what the bottom end will feel like.
I don't have any comparative data for Piper cams but if you post the lift and
duration specs I could see where it fits into the Kent range. The reason I
don't have Piper data is that their cams have a reputation for not wearing as
well as Kent's and certainly what I have seen in the past they were not
ground as well. Of course I expect APT can put a Piper profile on any given

<< My 1500 has the piper 285. Very lumpy idle. But I did combine it with
head work, twin SUs, and headers (with Monza). We advanced it (or was that
retard) 4 degrees via a double chain vernier gear set, which brought the
power range down to about 3K. At 3K, you can feel the power erupt.
If I had the cash, I would have had the cam and block ground for cam
